    Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

  • Dearly Devoted Dexter

    Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. In trying to avoid the deep suspicions of the dangerous Sergeant Doakes - who believes Dexter is a homicidal maniac (which, of course, he is) - Dexter has had to slip further into his foolproof domestic disguise. While not working as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, he now spends nearly all his time with his girlfriend, Rita, and her two children. But how long can Dexter play Kick the Can instead of Slice the Slasher?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone with a slight sense of the bizzare. The theme is one that will either grip you completely or turn you off. I loved it. Dexter is so intregueing as a character as are all the other characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely! It's hard not to read ahead to find out how it all turns out.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Landrum’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time to hear Nick Landrum and he did a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me want more!


    Any additional comments?

    There are some differences from the book to the TV series so readers who have followed the TV version should be prepared for this. The differences are not too hard to adjust to but they do change the dynamics a bit.

  • The Help

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Would you listen to The Help again? Why?

    Absolutely yes-the story was well written. A real and believable expose on the lives of southern black maids and their employers.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Help?

    When Skeeter leaves her satchel at the meeting-you just know the trouble that is going to come.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time I've heard this narrator and it was very enjoyable - I loved all the characters voices.
