Publisher's Summary

He’s a charming monster....
A macabre hero....
A serial killer who only kills bad people....

Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. It’s just not easy being an ethical serial killer - especially while trying to avoid the unshakable suspicions of the dangerous Sergeant Doakes (who believes Dexter is a homicidal maniac... which, of course, he is). In an attempt to throw Doakes off his trail, Dexter has had to slip deep into his foolproof disguise. While not working as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, he now spends nearly all his time with his cheerful girlfriend, Rita, and her two children, sipping light beer and slowly becoming the world’s first serial couch potato. But how long can Dexter play Kick the Can instead of Slice the Slasher? How long before his Dark Passenger forces him to drop the charade and let his inner monster run free?

In trying times, opportunity knocks. A particularly nasty psychopath is cutting a trail through Miami - a man whose twisted technique leaves even Dexter speechless. As Dexter’s dark appetite is revived, his sister, Deborah (a newly minted, tough-as-nails Miami detective) is drawn headlong into the case. It quickly becomes clear that it will take a monster to catch a monster - but it isn’t until his archnemesis is abducted that Dex can finally throw himself into the search for a new plaything. Unless, of course, his plaything finds him first....

With the incredible wit and freshness that drew widespread acclaim to Darkly Dreaming Dexter, Jeff Lindsay now takes Dexter Morgan to a new level of macabre appeal and gives us one of the most original, colorful narrators in years.

    "Great performance; not his best text"

    I like the author, love the concept, and the voice performances are fantastic. You really get a sense of how he thinks of his protagonist. The storyline to this one felt a bit weaker, but there's some fun stuff in it, and a lot of memorable character interactions. I'm glad I got it in a "sticking with the series" way, but other Dexter titles may be better.

    "when writer reads it :D"

    jeff lindsey has perfected the art of dark humor. with him reading the book it has so.much more life. mr. lindsay places the emphasis on the words and phrases he wanted to stand out, for me it's like hearing it the way it was supposed to.be heard/read.

    "Darkly Dreamed Fun"

    The story is fun, and the fate of Albert is much better than James on the show. Also the kids are better portrayed in the novels.

    "Wry wit makes for LOL reading"

    I don't often laugh out loud while listening to or reading a book, but this cracked me up. The performance was great. I thought the ending was a little weak but I'm still glad I have this and will listen again.

    "The dark moon catered to my dark passenger"

    Darkly dreaming Dexter was fresh and exciting even after being a long time fan of the show. The way Jeff Lindsay spoke in the Dark Passengers voice was chilling. How ever in dearly devoted it came off flat. The story was a bit boring at times and it felt Dexter doubted him self and is inability to be a monster. Still it was graphic and at times beautiful. I will be listening in on the others soon enough.

    "Even better the second time around"

    One of my favorite in the Dexter series! Sgt. Doaks, Kyle, Dr. Danko, Vince, Debra, Rita, Aster and Cody. The characters are so fun. Worth a listen.

    "love Dexter"

    was impressed Jeff was narrating his own work, I feel this gives a clearer insight into the characters, including things like name pronunciation, etc
