Through the eyes of the young Dexter. K. King, the readers gain a new insight on not only the life of the modern criminal underworld, but on themselves as well because of the young man’s ideals and beliefs that he gains and contemplates as he is forced to do many dark and perceptibly unjust actions that he regrets such as killing a man or even lying to his one true love.
