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

After the weird swallowing and clucking previous reader, I'm thrilled that they've chosen to change narrators. Although this may not be the most successful Dexter novel, I think the author did a great job with the reading.
Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!
I hate when the author reads his own books. How vain is that? He had a reasonably good reading voice and could master some variations, but some characters sounded like squeaking cartoons. But that is not the only thing wrong with this story.
I love a good crime, mystery and even horror story. But I don't find torture, serial killing and cannibalism FUNNY. I think to a story about a step-dad teaching minors how to effectively torture, dismember and kill stray dogs & cats FUNNY.
Jeff Lindsey does.
He delivered a few cleaver and witty lines, but they are childish and indulgent.
No wonder I never checked out the show.
Serial killers belong in jail or dead and not to be written about as affectionate and loveable characters with a minor social flaw.
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.
