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.

    "Dexter VS Cannibals"

    The Dexter series was loosing its fun but its back with this book. Dexter is funnier than ever and a member of his family coming back into the picture adds fun. This Dexter is not the same as the one on TV. This one has to often be rescued, is not as tough a fighter, and is quirkier but he is much funnier. Jeff Lindsay reads his own book and he's good at it.

    "Not as interesting or tense as the show..."

    I am a big fan of the Dexter show, thought i'd give one of the novels a try. The characters in the novels are clearly slightly different people -- but that's okay. Dexter is still a very interesting character here. Deb is not quite as fleshed out or likable a person in the novel as she is in the series. However, my basic problem with this is the plot. It's just not as interesting, reflective, frightening, or clever as the show. I saw every twist coming from MILES off. Respect to Jeff Lindsay, he's created a great character, and he does an admirable job as narrator, but the characters in this novel drive THROUGH the plot, as opposed to driving the plot forwards. The characters do the things they must to move them from one situation to the next, as opposed to having characters work against each other, which is what makes the show interesting.

    "Jeff Lindsay as Dexter?"

    Don't get me wrong, Jeff Lindsay is a decent reader. Sometimes I REALLY like it when an author reads their work but Nick Landrum is the voice of Dexter if you have been following this series. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first three.

    "very dissapointing"

    i love the dexter novels and am also an avid fan of the showtime series, and being such a large fan and also loving cannibals, i figured how could this go wrong? well, sorry to have to say it, but this book started out terribly whiny...became awkward, and finally ended in some sort of scooby doo mishap. i will not give away any plot points or the ending if you feel you must see how bad this is for yourself, but i suggest you save your credits and cold hard cash for something more enjoyable. this thoroughly disappointed me and i dont know if ill bother to read another dexter novel in the future. what a ripoff.

    "change of narrator ruined a perfect series"
    What would have made Dexter Is Delicious better?

    Nick Landrum to have narrated it. I couldn't finish this audio. Jeff Lindsey is the author which is cool, but he reads it like one fast run on sentence, and his voice for different characters, esp women was unbearable. I will buy the books to read, as I love the series, but I can not listen to him for one more minute.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jeff Lindsay? Why or why not?

    Only in print. I can not listen to his narration. It was one of the worst I have tried to listen to.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Lindsay’s performance?

    He reads rapidly with no breaks or inflections, like a run on sentence. His voice changes for different characters, especially women, were unbearable.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dexter Is Delicious?

    I can't say, as I was unable to finish the book. I will buy it in print. I love his books, just not his narration.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can find these audio books that Nick Landrum narrated, BUY them! Otherwise, buy them in print. The stories are awesome!

    "I love these books!!"

    First, I would like to say I can't understand the bad reviews regarding Jeff Lindsey as the narrator. I have thoroughly enjoyed his performance. Second, someone please tell me Rita dies in the books and hopefully soon. I want to kill the sniveling little twit myself. That is all.

    "Dexter is Dopey"

    Still fun but without the cleverness of the previous book. He's not as careful, cunning or confident as I remember. And lastly end up having to rely on others to save him rather than the other way round. If Dexter can't be clever at least let him go out in a blasé of glory.

    "Significantly Better"

    While pretty predictable and not all that exciting, this is at least a TON better than the previous book in the series. I'd even call it worthwhile.

    "DexDaddy Displaces Darkly Dreaming Dexter"

    The main antagonist in this story is probably the most disturbing yet. The book takes a while to get off the ground, but once it gets going, it's a hell of a ride. I didn't really care for Dexter's new, happier outlook in this book, but the character is evolving as any good character should. Jeff Lindsay does his usual, superb job of voicing the serial killer hunting serial killer. And a surprise guest made things very interesting. All in all, a fun roller coaster ride with the dark, dapper Dexter.
