I would not really recommend, the Dexter books are getting very predictable and Dexter has gone from some one who was supposed to be a very intelligent person to a complete idiot in this book. The foreshawdowing is ridiculously obvious and makes the book anti-climatic.
The book was basically just
Jeff Lindsay is not a very good narrator at all. Other than this book his Dexter serious has been very good but he is not the person who should be narrating the story.
Second guess getting the next Dexter book when it eventually comes out.
This was the worst book I have gotten in the las 7 years. the story was bad, the first person was hard to follow and at times mad no sense. If I could have givin it less than one star I would have.
Dexter seems to be getting dumber with each book. Pretty bad when an idiot out smarts him.
I don't read any other in the serial killer/hero genre.
Jeff is a pretty good writer but brings nothing as the narrator. I miss the guy from the first 2 books. He really complemented the author's writing.
I have only watched a few episodes of the Dexter television show and this is my first exposure to the books and I really enjoyed this audio book. I think I would rank it as one of my favorite audio books of all time. The writing is clever and funny and the author does an absolutely excellent job of reading the material. I admit that I enjoy Florida school of craziness but I think as an entertainment this book is top notch. If you are expecting the gore and intensity of the TV series this is not the book for you. This book is funny funny funny with quirky character and good writing to boot.

Dexter returns with double the trouble waiting for him. In the wake of his latest escapade. Dexter finds himself in trouble as his activities has inspired another killer who taunts Dexter with the knowledge he not only know what Dexter is but who he is. Meanwhile at home Rita has been acting strange. his two worlds collide as he races to find his new friend and clean up the mess he finds himself in. The Main Plot of the new Killer is Old hat for the Dexterverse. Old foes and friends return to both help and hinder Dexter's Efforts. What makes the Book Fun are the subplots as Dexter's obliviousness to Rita's and the new killer's behavior leaves him as confused as ever with human behavior, Rita herself is hilarious as ever. As the climax builds seeing how Dexter resolves his situation are the best parts of the book.
Dexter is a great character and I was anxious to read more of his adventures. The main plot is interesting and intriguing enough, but the author gets caught up to much into showing Dexter's mundane life as a family man. I read all the other Dexter books and thought that this one is a clear decline.
Jeff Lindsay is back with a great story. After Dexter by Design I thought the series was a goner. But then Mr. Lindsay offered up Dexter is Delicious - another treat! And now, with Double Dexter, Dexter's back in the game as an enduring, unlikely and delishously deviant hero.

The plot was SO thin and the story dragged on and on and on. I actually fast forwarded through a lot of it (a first for me & I listen to A LOT of audio books).. and didn't miss a single thing.
The author did a horrible job writing it and then he completely butchered the reading. I do believe this was the poorest narration on an audio book that I've ever heard.
There is nothing good about this book. Not one thing.
