Publisher's Summary

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.

    "STRANGE ONE - THIS ONE DID NOTHING FOR ME"

    When the hero of the story is a serial killer something is out of line. The side quips and commentary about life in Florida were amusing, but chuckling over blood and gore just didn't seem to fit. Was the goal here was to start a new genre, just by doing something that is so off center just to be different? If so, give me the old time rock and roll.

    "Dexter is Dead!"

    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.

    "Awful Narration"

    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!!!

    "Not Jeff Lindsay best!"

    I love Dexter but this was one of my least favorites. Not enough punch to the plot.

    "Not the best Dexter"

    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.

    "Weaker than his others."

    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.

    "Dexterous Dexter Does It Again!!!"

    Another wonderful tale beautifully read by Jeff Lindsey, who is absolutely my favorite narrator for the Dexter stories. He gets it just right, not surprisingly since he is the author of the delightfully dashing Dexter. Ending was not totally unpredictable which lost one star for me, but it was a great and wonderful addition to the dramatic Dexter saga. Love the Dexter persona, and love Jeff's narration, which rides the razor's edge of Dexter's complicated mental pathways with seeming ease. He portrays the emotion/lack of emotion of Dexter's personality with ease and panache.

    Yes

    "Won't get the next one unless Nick Landrum reads"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I adore mr. lindsay for writing the dexter books... but lets leave the reading to nick landrum. may not have been so bad had he been reading them from the get-go, but nick landrum did such a great job that it's hard to listen to mr. lindsay.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Lindsay’s performances?

    no.
