America’s 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 number one Showtime series and top-rated crime drama on pay-cable television, New York Times bestselling 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 seventeen-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 of all … these people have decided they would really like to eat Dexter.

Jeff Lindsay’s bestselling, dark, ironic, and often 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerry Arjona | 2/2/2014

    " Food for Dexter's murderous soul. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karine | 1/26/2014

    " Well written, with lots of pleasant-sounding alliteration. This is the first Dexter book I've read, although it is the 5th in the series. You don't need to have read the earlier books, but there were definitely some spoilers recapped. As other reviewers have said, there are some character and plot differences with the TV series, but this "alternate universe" is interesting. However, since the book is entirely in the first person, Dexter often accompanies Deb to recount the progress of her police investigation, which felt particularly unrealistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon Simpson | 1/18/2014

    " This is one of my favorites from the Dexter novels, even though it's shamelessly predictable throughout most of the book. Nevertheless, it's entertaining from start to finish and much better than some of its predecessors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Long | 1/14/2014

    " Another great Dexter book, with a new twist -- some of the characters are more evil than he -- but less likeable. But I do fear the series may have run its course. Is Dexter done? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adele McVay | 1/12/2014

    " Another excellent instalment of Dexter. As usual I find myself laughing out loud at things I really shouldn't find funny, but Dexter with his "Harrys Code" is the acceptable face of serial killing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 1/6/2014

    " My fondness for Dexter is getting seriously challenged. This book is based on a grotesque premise - I know, they're all sort of grotesque, but this one is OTT. Also, has Debs always been so one-sided and unsubtly drawn? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Neill | 1/6/2014

    " As I have read each book of this series it has grown more and more tiresome to read actually. To be honest I finished the book to just finish it and the fact that I read the other 4 books in the series. I have not decided if I will read the next one in the series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tim | 12/26/2013

    " Easily my least favorite of the Dexter series to date. Too much immediate family hijinks. The only person of interest is his cop sister, the others are just boring fillers. This is not a good story. 2 of 10 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 12/25/2013

    " Shortly after reading this one I heard the song Cannibal by Kesha and it reminds me of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 rach arkless | 12/24/2013

    " Not as well written as the last 4 books and a bit predictable - disappointing overall! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Janke | 12/6/2013

    " Watch Dexter on Showtime but wanted to find out where he started from so am reading the books by Jeff. They are different than the show but just as good, full of humor and family (if not a little different). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 12/1/2013

    " Dexter + Cannibals, what more can you ask for! Entertaining, though it does take a very odd turn with the female "victim" and her bizarre desires. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 10/26/2013

    " Better than book three. It is great seeing Dexter evolve. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katy | 4/5/2013

    " Another darkly hilarious Dexter book- different than the show, but both are good. I truly enjoyed this one :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie Pegg | 12/28/2012

    " I enjoyed this book as much as the other Dexter books. Maybe more. I love the inner battle he's having with himself about his newly born daughter, Lily Anne. I recommend these books to anyone who loves a good serial killer read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carmen Diaz | 7/22/2012

    " Slower-moving than others, but shocking and a bit unsettling for the stomach...although not more than #2 on par with #4. Pushes the envelope in true Dexter style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal Langley | 12/13/2011

    " Enjoying the evolution of the characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim Lundquist | 11/1/2011

    " Could not buy the whole cannibalism idea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda Smith | 6/27/2011

    " Lindsay almost lost me with this one. Definitely my absolute least favorite of the "Dexter" series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lin | 5/16/2011

    " A little predictable and I didn't really love the whole "art" theme. Maybe my familiarity with these Dexter books is changing my expectations (and thus disappointing me). Totally possible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lloyd | 5/12/2011

    " Pleasantly surprised by the direction of this volume. Only a couple of very short references to the ill-advised supernatural direction of the last book, so I'm looking forward to future volumes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 5/3/2011

    " I liked the first 2 books in this series better. It was okay, but I thought the ending need a little more " gotcha". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 4/24/2011

    " Will write a review later but right now all I can say is that art sure has many definitions! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meave | 4/24/2011

    " Oh honestly, Angela. What kind of denouement was THAT? Although a good bit of it did give me the giggles. Just, such a terrible ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alison | 4/12/2011

    " A cut above most murder stories but too gruesome for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 4/12/2011

    " Usual Dexter. Meh, just giving it a try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 4/11/2011

    " This book made me crave Cuban food so badly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debbie | 3/29/2011

    " Did not finish. This idea that the Dark Passenger is something external is in direct opposition to my own view of human nature. Oh, yeah, people can be evil without some alien consciousness guiding the way. "
