Book Review: Double Dexter (Dexter #6)

Title: Double Dexter (Dexter #6)


Author: Jeff Lindsay


“Like a breath of fresh air blowing across all crime-novel conventions, there is Dexter.” —Time

Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department . . . but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure . . . in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

Like the previous five best-selling novels in the Dexter series, Double Dexter showcases the witty, macabre origi­nality that has propelled Jeff Lindsay to international suc­cess. Double Dexter is raucously entertaining . . . full of smart suspense and dark laughs.


My review:

5/5 Stars

After my disappointment with book 5, I had to follow up with my thoughts of book 6. It was wicked, wild, and full of action—exactly what I’d expect from Jeff Lindsay! In Dexter’s wacky sixth adventure, he’s dealing with both family troubles as well as work issues. With Astor and Cody coming into their own and Lily-Anne a year old, Rita is focused on finding a new home while Dexter is worried about his newest nemesis—Shadow Dexter.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page. For the first half of the book, I had quite a few guesses as to who “Shadow Dexter” really was and every time I was wrong. The case in this story was so unique and well written that I can’t wait to move onto book seven and see where Jeff Lindsay takes it from there. A++!

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
