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.

    "One of the Best in the Series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Double Dexter to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print edition, however this is my second favourite Dexter adventure. It was well written and well performed!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Dexter was NOT in control! He was being led, instead of leading.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tortuga. I don't want to give away too much, so I will leave it at that.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I didn't intend it....but I did!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "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.

    Rita...I love...well...she talks...well...oh...lol...I like the way she talks!!!

    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.

    Story
    "No more authors who read their own work"
    Would you listen to Double Dexter again? Why?

    I cannot tolerate Jeff Lindsay's narration. His characters are amazing and I have loved all of his books, but I can never buy another book narrated by him. His writing is wonderful and his story lines are always fresh. I just find it disturbing the way he interprets his own characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Lindsay?

    I love Nick Landrum. He has the characters down pat. His children's voices are the best. His interpretation of Rita is killer.( oops!)


    Any additional comments?

    Please, bring Nick back into our lives as Dexter. This is one of my favorite all time book series. I love Dexter.

    Story
    "I think I like this Dexter better than Showtime's"

    Okay, this (if you can imagine) had this "feel good" feel to it after I was done.

    That being said, the climax part was really UBER cheesy, and really quite "un-Dexter-like." I'd have to say that this one, out of all six, had me feeling the largest range of emotions as I listened to it. Anticipation, fear, happy, relieved, the whole spectrum is there. And I love this Dexter even more now, I think, than Showtime's Dexter. Although it's messing with my head a bit, knowing the series is about to start it's next season, and the relationships (particularly that between Dexter and his sister, Deborah) are so very different between the books and the show.

    I can say that I'm DEFINITELY looking for the next Dexter by Jeff Lindsay now! :)

    "Dexter is human???"

    This wasn't the best of the "Dexter" books - but it wasn't bad. There might have been a few times when Dexter was uncharacteristically oblivious to certain tell-tale signs that he was about to get busted - but, I can see how the author needed some plot twists. Still, they were a bit too obvious. However, overall, it was very entertaining. The audiobook version, which was read by the author himself, was very well done. We're now starting to see a "near-human" side of Dexter, and that is actually sort of refreshing. And I like how the books almost completely diverge from the television show. But, the author is going to have to step it up a bit if he hopes to stay a edgy and clever as the show! Gauntlet down!
