Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

The book centers on a Miami-based blood spatter analyst for the police department, who leads a double life as a serial killer with a unique code of ethics. By day, he is a charming, socially awkward forensics expert, but by night, he channels his compulsion to kill into a vigilant quest to hunt down murderers who have escaped justice. His life becomes complicated when a new serial killer, whose methods are eerily similar to his own, arrives in Miami and he must outwit the police, his coworkers, and the new adversary to maintain his carefully constructed facade and satisfy his darker urges.
