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.

    From the way she acts when I take them off, I've a feeling my baby girl thinks I have headphones graphed to my skull.

    "Doting Daddy Dexter Delivers D'goods!"

    I have all the Dexter novels and this one is pretty good. Dexter is at that revolting stage of parenthood where he thinks they should hand out noble prizes for burping. Revolting but funny and I choose to believe adorable in self defence. Dexter is in a pickle trying to be a dedicated daddy and husband in the middle of coming the closest ever to being exposed as the dark avenger. Which among other things lands him in the middle of the wilderness on a Boy Scout camping trip that almost made coffee squirt out of my nose. My one complaint is that the self descriptive internal monologging got to be a bit much. Dexter the dark, Dexter the dangerous, Dexter the devious, Dexter of the enormous brain, Dexter the extremely long winded to the point of more than a few eye rolls and an unkind thought or two about the author using it to fill pages. Overall though I enjoyed it very much.

    "As good as ever!"

    If you loved the previous stories you will love this one also! My only complaint is that I'd like Jeff Lindsay to stop reading his own books. Yes, he does fine but the guy that used to do them was better. You'd think that after becoming rich he'd spread the wealth around and let a professional present his story.

    "Bring back Nick Landrum"

    I still love Dexter BUT he is getting a little long in the tooth. Time to retire him but if there is another Dexter novel, please Jeff, let a professional reader like Nick Landrum read the next one! You are a great writer, very imaginative and witty but you aren't a great narrator.

    "Double D"

    This is worth the read if just for his interactions with his 1 year old daughter. It has plenty of WTH & WTF moments. I loved Astor's roll in this story. Fot me it didn't quite have the bite of previous Dexters. I think that often happens with books that are pivotal for character/circumstance transition. The story is good & Lindsay's narration is good. (except for his chapter annoncements..what's up with that?).

    "Double Dexter Does Death Delightfully"

    Some complain that Dexter has lost his edge, is more sympathetic. I agree, and that is why I love him even more. It's the struggle with his burgeoning humanity that makes Dexter so much more a fully-developed character. Keep 'em coming, Jeff Lindsay.

    "Get another reader!"

    Jeff Lindsey is an excellent writer, and should stick to that. He brings little to the story in the way of character interpretation and should leave the reading to someone else. The story is good, though Dexter seems awfully dense when it comes to figuring things out. It needs more of Dexters darker side, something Lindsey does well. While I enjoy the Dexter books, I won't be getting any more that Lindsey reads.

    "Disappointing Dexter"

    I love the TV show so, I've listened to every book in this series but I continue to get disapointed time after time. This is one of the rare cases where the Television show blows away the book. Don't get me wrong the books as was this one is good but the show is great and just can't be compared to the book at all. With that said though, in terms of the Dexter book series, this one would actually one of the better books I've listened to. Also, the narrator, who is also good, would be so much better if they actually got Michael C. Hall to narrate.

    Story
    "IQ drops with each book"
    What disappointed you about Double Dexter?

    Dexter seems to be getting dumber with each book. Pretty bad when an idiot out smarts him.


    Has Double Dexter turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I don't read any other in the serial killer/hero genre.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Jeff is a pretty good writer but brings nothing as the narrator. I miss the guy from the first 2 books. He really complemented the author's writing.

    Story
    "Very Predictable"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not really recommend, the Dexter books are getting very predictable and Dexter has gone from some one who was supposed to be a very intelligent person to a complete idiot in this book. The foreshawdowing is ridiculously obvious and makes the book anti-climatic.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The book was basically just


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

    Jeff Lindsay is not a very good narrator at all. Other than this book his Dexter serious has been very good but he is not the person who should be narrating the story.


    Did Double Dexter inspire you to do anything?

    Second guess getting the next Dexter book when it eventually comes out.

    "Mr. Lindsay - don't read your books"

    Lindsay ruins a perfectly decent book by reading it. Of course, this one is barely passable compared to the other books. It's so paint-by-numbers.
