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.
Like the previous five best-selling novels in the Dexter series, Double Dexter showcases the witty, macabre originality that has propelled Jeff Lindsay to international success. Double Dexter is raucously entertaining... full of smart suspense and dark laughs.
From the Hardcover edition.

“[A] macabre tour-de-force.” (New York Times Book Review)
“Like a breath of fresh air blowing across all crime-novel conventions, there is Dexter.” (Time )
“Lindsay’s original, cockeyed view of the world is alive and well.” (Los Angeles Times)
Double Dexter is an enjoyable book to listen to and it's nice that it's read by the author. If you're coming from the show as I did, some major characters' "situations" are quite different. This threw me off a bit but I got used to it. The story is pretty good but not great. The characters are really what makes the book. The ending could have used more detail (I have to be vague to avoid spoilers). All-in-all I look forward to listening to more Dexter books.

Great concept for the Dexter series to encompass. If you like Dexter....you gotta love this one.
This was the worst book I have gotten in the las 7 years. the story was bad, the first person was hard to follow and at times mad no sense. If I could have givin it less than one star I would have.
I have only watched a few episodes of the Dexter television show and this is my first exposure to the books and I really enjoyed this audio book. I think I would rank it as one of my favorite audio books of all time. The writing is clever and funny and the author does an absolutely excellent job of reading the material. I admit that I enjoy Florida school of craziness but I think as an entertainment this book is top notch. If you are expecting the gore and intensity of the TV series this is not the book for you. This book is funny funny funny with quirky character and good writing to boot.

Dexter returns with double the trouble waiting for him. In the wake of his latest escapade. Dexter finds himself in trouble as his activities has inspired another killer who taunts Dexter with the knowledge he not only know what Dexter is but who he is. Meanwhile at home Rita has been acting strange. his two worlds collide as he races to find his new friend and clean up the mess he finds himself in. The Main Plot of the new Killer is Old hat for the Dexterverse. Old foes and friends return to both help and hinder Dexter's Efforts. What makes the Book Fun are the subplots as Dexter's obliviousness to Rita's and the new killer's behavior leaves him as confused as ever with human behavior, Rita herself is hilarious as ever. As the climax builds seeing how Dexter resolves his situation are the best parts of the book.
Dexter is a great character and I was anxious to read more of his adventures. The main plot is interesting and intriguing enough, but the author gets caught up to much into showing Dexter's mundane life as a family man. I read all the other Dexter books and thought that this one is a clear decline.
Jeff Lindsay is back with a great story. After Dexter by Design I thought the series was a goner. But then Mr. Lindsay offered up Dexter is Delicious - another treat! And now, with Double Dexter, Dexter's back in the game as an enduring, unlikely and delishously deviant hero.

The plot was SO thin and the story dragged on and on and on. I actually fast forwarded through a lot of it (a first for me & I listen to A LOT of audio books).. and didn't miss a single thing.
The author did a horrible job writing it and then he completely butchered the reading. I do believe this was the poorest narration on an audio book that I've ever heard.
There is nothing good about this book. Not one thing.
