By E. Bukowsky HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 22, 2011
Format: Hardcover
For quite some time, first-person narrator Dexter Morgan has been juggling multiple roles: husband and father of two stepchildren and a beautiful baby girl, Lily Anne; blood spatter expert for the Miami-Dade Police Department; and ruthless vigilante who stalks individuals whom he is convinced need killing. He slices and dices his victims and keeps a slide with a drop of their blood as a souvenir. Dexter has executed over fifty people to date without being caught. Whatever could go wrong?

As it turns out, quite a few things can and do go wrong. One, someone spots Dexter doing his dastardly deed to a suspected pedophile. Two, Rita, Dexter's wife, has been acting strangely of late; she's drinking far too much wine and appears more agitated than usual. Worst of all, from Dexter's viewpoint, is that Rita has stopped serving him delicious home-cooked dinners! Chauvinist Dexter is willing to change a diaper, but he is not big on meal preparation. While Dexter spends hours surreptitiously looking for the witness who is now threatening to destroy him, Rita is becoming ever more jumpy; Dexter fears that his career, marriage, and freedom may be in danger.

In "Double Dexter," by Jeff Lindsay, the usually unflappable Dexter is showing signs of strain. Just when he needs to "stay icy calm and in complete control," he is beginning to fall apart. In the past, he was a consummate actor who could fake being human without much effort; now, he is distracted, irritable, and anxious. Making matters worse, "a maniac with a sledgehammer" has been battering cops to a pulp. Dex's sister, the foul-mouthed and aggressive Sergeant Deborah Morgan, demands that her brother use his forensic wizardry and amateur profiling skills to help her nab the perpetrator.

With the exception of "Dexter in the Dark", I've been at least entertained by all of the Dexter books. While this one I enjoyed overall, it is slow and uneventful, and falls short in a number of ways.

Is author Lindsay so bored in his own life that he has written a book that gives us a Dexter annoyed by the mundane parts of family life? Is he trying to justify copying the direction of the tv series and get rid of Rita? She has no redeeming qualities at all in this story.

The background of the antagonist is contradictory, with identity issues that an angry ex would have revealed long ago, as well as his former employer. Made no sense.

And less plausible is the ending, where Dexter takes a highly visible action at a tourist site yet no one - no one - used a camera to take his photo. And like a bad slasher film, the ultimate end to the antagonist is hammered into your head about 10 pages before it happens. You just read the obvious "clue" and wait for it to happen.

The always ominous presence of Brian is a welcome difference from the tv series, but wasted here.

Again, weak Dexter is better than no Dexter. This was weak.

I am a bit surprised that another reviewer states this book had him/her at the edge of their seat. Mr. Lindsay got lazy and sloppy with this book and should have called it Double Bumbling Dexter. The entire book had me wondering why Dexter hadn't figured it out when I did. I have enjoyed the other Dexter books in the past. Unfortunately this one leaves one wondering if this Mr. Lindsay wrote this one as a murder mystery for 10 year olds.

I just finished this novel a few hours ago and was eager to read some reviews on here to get other people's takes on it.

***SOME SPOILERS BELOW***

What to say, what to say... I enjoyed this book, as I have every installment Lindsay's put out in this original series. I've read all but "Dexter in the Dark" and that is next up on my list, and I will faithfully continue to check out all other future publications but it's difficult for anyone to not notice and point out the flaws in works they're fans of and well-acquainted with, right?

Some definite Pro's of this book in my view is that it felt tighter and more focused than its predecessor, "Dexter Is Delicious." I actually enjoyed that one a great deal, but its central villainy and Big Bad(s) were certainly over the top, and "Double Dexter" righted that for me. Also, the Witness angle was something Lindsay hadn't yet explored and so that made the reading endeavor fresh in & of itself right out of the gate. The continued inclusion of Brian was also a big plus. And although these are relatively minor bonuses, there seemed to be less redundant ruminating on that 'ole brutal Miami traffic this time around (THANK GOODNESS!) and also less whining about Deborah's "blistering arm punches," namely because there were simply fewer of them but every time our protagonist starts crying about those in this series I can't help but think, 'Good grief, toughen up already man!' :)

All that said, it was a bit frustrating...maddeningly so at times...to see the trend continue in this novel of Dexter being outsmarted at nearly every turn; by a complete "amateur" no less, according to his own words. Although it's been a few years since I read the first two novels in this series, I remember Mr.
