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)
This is the absolute worst book I have ever listened to. In fact I stopped after part 1 and took a break for a week. After convincing myself it had to get better I finished it. I was wrong, it never got better. It's hard to believe the same author that penned Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter wrote this drivel. It was as bad if not worse than the last one which SUCKED.In fact since Dearly Devoted Dexter this series has been headed off the tracks and has now officially "Jumped the Shark". So as of now I am done with literary Dexter and will stick with TV Dexter. At least TV Dex seems to regained his soul this season and is hopefully back on track as my favorite Serial Killer. The Dexter in this book is weak and soulless with no redeeming qualities. It got so bad in fact that I found I was rooting for the bad guy to capture and kill this poor sad soulless Dexter just to save his children (and us) from his boring lackluster self.
My advise is save your money and find something else to listen to, audible has lots of great books to choose from, unfortunately this is NOT one of them.
I am sorry to say that I have already purchased Dexter Is Delicious. If I had listened to Jeff Lindsay's dreadful narration of this book first, I'd never have purchased another. Mr. Lindsay, I enjoy your writing, but your narration overwhelms your story. At best, it is mediocre. PLEASE let someone else narrate Dexter! I won't buy again unless you do!!!
Homemaker, married to Dave Bargar, mother of 8, Christian, Seventh-day Adventist, love to read!
Great concept for the Dexter series to encompass. If you like Dexter....you gotta love this one.
I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
I love Dexter but this was one of my least favorites. Not enough punch to the plot.
I love Dexter, both the books and the show. Like the show, this book seems to be running out of inventiveness. Like the show, it is still entertaining. I guess it depends on how careful you are about where you spend your credits. I will still rent the next one because it is still a
"fun" listen -- but if you are expecting the unexpected, you will be disappointed.
I am a fan of this series, but this book was my least favorite thus far. Lindsey got a little wordy, and he got very repetitive with the same overused adjectives/adverbs from the previous books like dithering and blubbering and dimpled. I also felt that there should've been more thought put into the story. For example, Dexter was a person of interest and he was shocked that someone would be following him...ummm...like the cops, maybe?
I've not read the print edition, however this is my second favourite Dexter adventure. It was well written and well performed!
Dexter was NOT in control! He was being led, instead of leading.
Tortuga. I don't want to give away too much, so I will leave it at that.
I didn't intend it....but I did!
To me, the Dexter saga climaxes with this story. The next in the series was a bit of a disappointment. I am looking forward to the concluding story...Dexter is Dead.
Always enjoy Dex and love the audiobooks, but I found this one transparent and flat. Still, Jeff has set these standards, and it was still entertaining.
