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

Odd even for Dexter, but enjoyable!

I enjoyed this Dexter novel - was nice to see him gain a little more humanity related to Lilly Anne. The cannabalism... well, that was an interesting twist! I am looknig forward to seeing what happens to Dexter next!

I have to ask why Jeff Lindsay felt the need to narrate... he doesn't do a terrible job, but there were a lot of monotone sentences, and I missed the "dark delight" that Nick Landrum seems to bring to Dexter's voice!

Getting Dexter

Nick Landrum really "got" Dexter. I started off to write this review only to discover that the reader that is boring me to tears is none other than the author! All I can think of as I attempt to wade through this audiobook is that the reader doesn't really get Dexter.

Nick Landrum really characterized Dexter with his reading/acting skills. He brought us that sardonic side of Dexter just with his tone of voice. The author as reader is just reading. I so loved the other Dexter novels (via audiobook) but I'm not sure I can finish this one. I would have loved to hear Landrum's Dexter bring this new twist to Dexter's life. I hope the publisher will consider doing another version as this one is not up to par.

Yes, I agree wtih others, Jeff Lindsay is a brilliant writer but not so hot as an audiobook reader. Let the pros put the polish on your work, Jeff!
