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
Change in Reader Ruined It!
It's not that the author is a bad reader, just not good. Nick Landrum "is" Dexter on audiobook and the change ruined it. If you've listened to the other Dexter novels on audiobook you will be dissapointed! to be fair to the author/reader, any change would have probably had the same overall effect.
Oh no Jeff!
Love Dexter, love the writing, but please don't let the author narrate. The last 4 books were excellently read (acted) by Nick Landrum, and alas Jeff does not do the book justice. As usual, authors can write but not read...
The book is well written and entertaining
The book meets the usual high standards of the writer. The basic problem with the book is the reader. His voice is "okay", but it is definitely not the professional level of the gentleman who read the other 4 books. Mr. Lindsay should concentrate on his writing and let professionals do the reading. His voice doesn't convey the nuances of the characters that I have come to expect from this series.
