An art history professor and writer and cheerful pervert, James Qatar had a hobby: he took secret photographs of women and turned them into highly sexual drawings. One day, he took the hobby a step further and...well, one thing led to another, and he had to kill her. A man in his position couldn't be too careful, after all. And you know something? He liked it.

Already faced with a welter of confusion in his personal life, Deputy Chief Lucas Davenport decides to take this case himself, hoping that some straightforward police work will clear his head, but as the trail begins to take some unexpected turns, it soon becomes clear that nothing is straightforward about this killer. The man is learning as he goes, Lucas realizes, taking great strides forward with each murder. He is becoming a monster, and Lucas may have no choice but to walk right into his lair.

Filled with the rich characterization and detail that distinguish all of Sandford's work, Chosen Prey is a masterpiece of suspense. Download and start listening now!

    " Another fast paced book. I knew how this book would end pretty close to the beginning. I figured Lucas would approve "

    " The twelfth book in the excellent Prey series is a welcome change, since the last entry was a disappointment. Sandford has returned to his particular plot device of focusing on the villain, so although there is no mystery about whodunnit, the excitement comes from tracking Lucas Davenport and his team of Minneapolis cops as they stumble their way to the truth. A solid secondary character emerges, a deputy from a rural county with a strong stake in finding the serial killer. Davenport's personal life has improved a lot; he's back with Weather Karkinnen and they're now trying to get pregnant and working toward marriage, plans that had stalled several books ago. There's also a neat cameo by Kidd, the protagonist of a short series of crime novels by Sandford. Unlike the previous novel, the victims in this story are very likeable, which adds a lot of emotional depth. There is the usual cop humor, lots of dialogue, lots of driving around in the Porsche or the Tahoe...it's mostly background noise to the story, but pleasant. There is a bit more development of the crew, which I appreciate, since I read this series primarily to enjoy the growth of Davenport. A dozen novels ago, he was an over-the-top, Dirty Harry type, a womanizer who had killed five men in the line of duty and was considered a wild card. He's a lot more thoughtful by now and starting to consider things like enlarging his house for his future family. Marcy Sherrill, his former girlfriend who barely survived a shooting, has a new boyfriend; Del Capslock, the grungy undercover cop, is battling high cholesterol. It's really nice to see all the characters rounded out, sometimes in unexpected ways. The villain is a creepy psychopath, the kind that makes you think you know someone very much like him. Unlike several of the other books in the series, I wouldn't regard this as a stand-alone story. There's too much history in it; you would be best off by reading the series in order to get to this point. Enjoy! "
