Publisher's Summary

Americas most-read, most-watched, and most beloved serial killer - Dexter Morgan - is back. After selling more than one million copies and inspiring the wildly popular #1 Showtime series and top-rated crime drama on pay-cable television, New York Times best-selling author Jeff Lindsay returns with his most hilarious, macabre, and purely entertaining novel yet.

Dexter Morgan has always lived a happy homicidal life. He keeps his dark urges in check by adhering to one steadfast rule... he only kills very bad people. But now Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals. And, most disturbing... these people have decided they would really like to eat Dexter.

Jeff Lindsay's best-selling, dark, ironic, and oftentimes laugh-out-loud hilarious novels about the lovable serial killer with no soul (but a redeeming desire to kill only people who deserve it) have gained a legion of fans and assumed a place in our culture

More dastardly deeds desired? Listen to more Dexter.

    "Maybe not the best Dexter book to start with"

    I picked this up on a special offer from Audible, but not being exposed to any of the previous Dexter books, this may not have been the best book to start with. I was lost and confused through the beginning as no summary or history was given to help understand the basis of the series or the characters. Dexter comes across as a blend of Forest Gump and Rainman, and I had to guess at many of the story nuances, such as what the "Dark Passenger" was through most of the book. Maybe the author should spend his time sprucing up the story instead of narrating it.

    "Dexter is Delicious"

    OK, so maybe this was not the best book to start off with in the non-TV storyline of the popular (with us too!) characters. My wife and I listened to the story on a recent long trip.
    Let me say that perhaps an abridged version would be much better in this case? The story is very "wordy" in unusual parts and seems to get 'lost' in itself several times in the storyline.
    The reader/author was very good though and even sounds (to us) very much like the actor that portrays his character on TV. You definitely won't see any of this storyline on the TV version of "DEXTER"!

    "Dexter is sick"

    A ridiculous waste of time on a sorry story concept. I'm so sorry I wasted my money.

    "Daddy Dexter"

    The last installment of the Dexter Morgan series left me a little...blah, but this book is paced much better and even brings some characters back into the mix to further Dexter's journey. This book explores Dexter's personal evolution and even though i grew worried for my favorite serial killer at times he shows his true colors and did not disappoint. Each of the main characters in Dexter's life were woven perfectly into this story and i recommend it for all fellow Dexter followers.

    Oh and Jeff Lindsay is not as bad as some of the previous comments stated. I did miss Nick L's amazing narration skills, but I enjoy hearing the story the way the author hears it. Having Jeff Lindsay step in was a great treat. Preview first if you are skeptical.

    "Get on with it!"

    Ugh, I have to agree with another reviewer that Jeff Lindsay is a good writer but an annoying reader. The guy that did the previous books was Dexter to me. The book starts out slowly with 20 minutes of how wonderfullllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Dexter's new kid is. It gave me a headache.

    Second try at this. I like the books and the tv is interesting. But the audio is not so good. Is it the reader? i do ot know. The only book I know that I do not want to listen to.

    "great job, Jeff!"

    After the weird swallowing and clucking previous reader, I'm thrilled that they've chosen to change narrators. Although this may not be the most successful Dexter novel, I think the author did a great job with the reading.

    "Self Indulgent"

    I hate when the author reads his own books. How vain is that? He had a reasonably good reading voice and could master some variations, but some characters sounded like squeaking cartoons. But that is not the only thing wrong with this story.

    I love a good crime, mystery and even horror story. But I don't find torture, serial killing and cannibalism FUNNY. I think to a story about a step-dad teaching minors how to effectively torture, dismember and kill stray dogs & cats FUNNY.

    Jeff Lindsey does.

    He delivered a few cleaver and witty lines, but they are childish and indulgent.

    No wonder I never checked out the show.

    Serial killers belong in jail or dead and not to be written about as affectionate and loveable characters with a minor social flaw.

    "Dexter is Tasteless"

    A dreadful book. Cannibalism is entertaining? Not for me. The main character is a serial killer who works for the Police Department. Believable? Not to me. I could not - would not - finish this terrible story.
