Americas most-read, most-watched, and most beloved serial killer - Dexter Morgan - is back. After selling more than one million copies and inspiring the wildly popular #1 Showtime series and top-rated crime drama on pay-cable television, New York Times best-selling author Jeff Lindsay returns with his most hilarious, macabre, and purely entertaining novel yet.
Dexter Morgan has always lived a happy homicidal life. He keeps his dark urges in check by adhering to one steadfast rule... he only kills very bad people. But now Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals. And, most disturbing... these people have decided they would really like to eat Dexter.
Jeff Lindsay's best-selling, dark, ironic, and oftentimes laugh-out-loud hilarious novels about the lovable serial killer with no soul (but a redeeming desire to kill only people who deserve it) have gained a legion of fans and assumed a place in our culture
More dastardly deeds desired? Listen to more Dexter.

Second try at this. I like the books and the tv is interesting. But the audio is not so good. Is it the reader? i do ot know. The only book I know that I do not want to listen to.
I would totally recomend this book to a friend. I would maybe recommend reading it instead of listening to it. Or at least warn them of Jeff Lindsays horrible narration.
Just about any other Dexter book before it....well not book 3. Skip book 3.
Wow, I'll give anyone a shot and it would probably improve. The dream team narration would be to have the core cast of the show read the lines when that character speaks, as in some books that I've heard. Michael C Hall would be perfect of course and maybe just get a random actor and actress to narrate the other supporting characters.
But more realistically, Nick Landrum was VERY good! Can we please get him back and maybe re-record the previous books?
Um.....It is already a tv show.....
All in all this book was very good. Very graphic and funny at times. It could have eased up on the discription of every little thing that Dexter sees, touches, or experiances. Though Jeff Lindsays narration is still bad and inconsistant when voicing different chraracters, it was a slight improvement from his previous narrations.
A dreadful book. Cannibalism is entertaining? Not for me. The main character is a serial killer who works for the Police Department. Believable? Not to me. I could not - would not - finish this terrible story.
Jeff Lindsay is out of gas. Dexter's delightfully droll tone seems forced, and his attempt to convert to the light side unconvincing. I could hear the plot contrivances creaking away. Plus, really stupid bad people. Lindsay sounds like a teenage boy trying to scare his friends on a sleep over, after watching too many monster movies. Stick with the debut of this series, and you'll keep your fond memories.
