Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Really enjoyed this! (I guess I hadn't seen it earlier, but since you've put a bunch of stories together in the "Metropolis Files" series, including the latest one, "The Return", I've been catching up with the ones I hadn't read previously.)
Comments from author:
The Metropolis Files has been there for a while, but it's a few months since I added to the series. Glad you're enjoying them.

Actually Celebrity Victim is a stand-alone, not part of a series - not really planning a sequel.

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from Greywizard
Review:
Excellent story here, my friend.

I think you captured Dexter's voice perfectly, and you most certainly captured Deb's voice exactly. ;-)

If the whim ever strikes you, I'd love to see Dexter setting his sights on Lex Luthor as his target. It would most certainly be along-term project (on both Dex's and your parts), but I am certain you could pull it off as well as your other work.

Wonderful job.

Many thanks - doubt I'll return to it, but you never know.

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from (Past Donor)James
Review:
Well done. I only have a vague idea of who Dexter is and what he does (mostly from this site) and the only reason I read it was because you wrote it, Marcus.

The quality of the writing, as always, was excellent.

Comments from author:
Thanks very much - I do recommend Dexter, it's an excellent show (a rare case of a show better than the books it's based on).

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Convincing.

Nice return to status quo :)
Comments from author:
Well, I did consider some alternatives, but most of them seemed to end up with Dexter exposed so I went with this one.

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from Hecatonchires
Review:
Fantastic in book theme Dexter story. Loved the internal narrrative ^_^
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it - I had to take some of the "voice" from the books since you don't always get it clearly in the show, glad you think it works.

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from cwolf
Review:
interesting mix of the tv show and the book series its based on. never heard "Dark Passenger" referred to in the show
Comments from author:
I knew that I was getting some of the voice from the books, hadn't realised that was in the books only. Never mind, I don't think it matters too much.

[edit 23rd october 2008] They used it in this week's episode!

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from daveykins
Review:
Excellent story - and Luthor escapes to plot again another day...

Comments from author:
Bwah ha ha!

Just out of interest, why a private review? That's usually reserved for telling people they've done something stupid like spelling things wrong!

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from SamJames
Review:
An excellent story as always. I don't watch Dexter so I don't know how faithful you are to the characters but your writing is so good that I'll read all your stories even if I don't know the material being crossed. Certainly the plot made sense and seeing Dexter struggle with not telling too much was fascinating. Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Thanks - Dexter is a very good show if you can live with a more or less unrepentant serial killer as the lead character.

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from angrymonkey
Review:
It's too bad this is a over, I really would have enjoyed watching little Ahab try hunting down his white whale. Well written and managed to keep Dexter in character something a lot of authors can't pull off.
Comments from author:
I'm just too busy to take on any long fics at present. Thanks!

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from (Past Donor)Charlotte
Review:
Excellent voice. And the multiple crosses were done very well.
Comments from author:
I nearly had Burn Notice in there too, but decided against it in the end.

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from (Recent Donor)DonSample
Review:
Good one. The obvious candidate for who did the hacking is Luthor himself. If everyone thinks he's dead, no one will be looking for him. Maybe you could do a follow-up where Dexter catches up with Luthor.
Comments from author:
I think that they have the right explanation. Of course sooner or later Luthor will decide that he's had enough of government hospitality and split, leaving a trail of corpses behind him. But I really doubt I'll be writing it.

Review of chapter "Celebrity Victim" from CPTSkip
Review:
This was just terrific. You captured the TV version of Dexter prefectly, IMHO. And, just like the TV series, you made me laugh out loud several times. I especially liked: "I think that asshole Caine at Dade County handled that." Lol!
Comments from author:
Couldn't resist - really do not like HC.
