By SonicQuack VINE VOICE on 25 Jan. 2012
Format: Hardcover
There has been a fluffy feel to the Dexter series of late, with children (warped ones), love interests (sort of) and some internal rambling monologues (some still present). Lindsay returns to top form in Double Dexter, a book full to the brim of self-loathing and a killer plot which twists and turns in very unpredictable ways. The dark humour is very similar to that of the first novel; pitch black and the humour derived from Dex's incomprehension of those around him is right on the nail. There are a few predictable plot mechanics which are delivered in a fashion which still shocks and ultimately this is good fun from start to finale. Double Dexter is smart crime fiction in the vein of Hiassen (more Florida based wackiness) and is a great read.

I found myself unable to put this book down once I had started it. I'm a big fan of all of the Dexter books, Jeff Lindsay's writing style is extremely appealing. For anyone new to the series (and if you are I suggest starting with Darkly Dreaming Dexter which is the first book in the series, and read the rest of the series in sequential order to get the most out of them) Dexter is a serial killer, with a difference. He only kills bad guys.

This basic premise of this novel, that of a witness, is excellent. It really puts the pressure on Dexter in a way he hasn't been through before, he has been threatened before, a lot, but never has the tension as high as it is now. Add to that the return of his brother earlier in the series, who is forming a stronger bond with Rita and Dexters step kids, plus house hunting with Rita, Dexter is really up against it this time.

There is a sub plot with Rita, which I won't spoil, which Jeff Lindsay cleverly manipulates the story so that the reader has a good idea what's going on in her head, whilst Dexter is completely clueless. I think this is a touch of genius, since the story is told from the point of view of Dexter who doesn't even suspect something is up, never mind being to work out what it is, whilst we, the reader, have a pretty good idea, or at least strong suspicions, what Rita is thinking. Dexters blind spot being down to the fact that emotions are such an alien concept to him.

This brings me onto one of the other excellent things about this series. Dexter is so convinced he is different from other humans, and doesn't feel emotion, yet his thoughts and actions show otherwise.

By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Feb. 2012
Format: Hardcover
Double Dexter is the 6th in the popular Dexter series by Jeff Lindsay. When his latest playdate is witnessed by an unknown man, Dexter, our favourite serial killer with a conscience, suffers a great deal of anxiety, wondering if life as he knows and loves it is over. But it seems his witness chooses to follow in his footsteps, then blog about it, and Dexter decides he needs to remove this copycat from the land of the living, if only he can find him. But Dexter's understandable arrogance leads him to underestimate his quarry. While the first paragraphs are a bit repetitive, all that waxing lyrical about the moon, we can forgive Lindsay this when we know what is coming will be good. And it is. Dexter's inner monologue is always entertaining, even if he appears to be a self-pitying, inactive Dexter, performing at less than his usual Dexter standard. Not even motherhood has tempered the creative standard of insult and put-down that Dexter's ever-scowling sister, Deborah, manages to achieve. Lindsay reaches new heights with the scatter-brained Rita's hilarious disjointed dialogue, and Dexter's exchanges with Masuoka are always droll. Dexter's complete inability to read human emotions is highlighted and contrasts with his very human total lack of impartiality about his own offspring's abilities. Lindsay skilfully captures the feel of Miami, the humidity, the mindset, and gives us a good dose of irony with Dexter being suspected of a murder he didn't commit. As always, brilliant imagery and plentiful, imaginative D alliteration abound. The only problem with the Dexter series is waiting for the next one to be published.

These books are a great read in their own right and bear only a passing resemblance to the tv series. Sometimes though you wish the scriptwriters would pick up some of the great plots from the books and this is one of those.
Loved it and will be reading the next as soon as its published!

Format: Paperback
`Double Dexter` is an amazing instalment to the series. This time
around his daughter is reaching the toddler stage, Rita is adament
about buying a new propert, and dear brother Brian is putting on
pressure about joining in for one of his victims.

One night Dexter is slaying a child molestor who poses as a clown
for kids parties. He is seen by a person in a red Honda - wwhich
leads to him being stalked, black mailed and maybe even dead!

The one thing this novel definitly doesn't lack is suspense.
However at times I thought it did drag on. It is the longest of
the series but by no doubt the second best. There is a slow build
up to the climatic ending which believe me really makes it worthy
while. The suspense in the last fifty pages are amazing. The humor
is also top-notch, particuarly with Doakes, the cop you love to hate.

If you are a fan of the novels and series then this is a must have!
