Dearly Devoted Dexter: Dexter, Book 2 | [Jeff Lindsay]

Dearly Devoted Dexter: Dexter, Book 2

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....

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.

    "Wanted: New Narrator."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have read other reviews that warned of bad narration and had avoided that fate until now. The narrator sounded like he was whispering. It was so hard to finish the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storyline was interesting.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Find a new narrator.

    "Bad narrator"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Made me cringe every time he spoke. Contrary to what the byline says--this is not the same narrator as the first book. While the narration in Darkly Dreaming was not great it was at least bearable. The narrator for Dearly Devoted has such a fake cadence and irritating enunciation that it makes me cringe every time I turn it on. I can only manage to listen to it for a few minutes at a time before I have to turn it off. I really wish I hadn't bought the whole series but I just assumed it would be the same narrator as the first book..
