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!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 2/8/2014

    " Best Lucas Davenport book yet! Just could not put this one down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 2/7/2014

    " This Lucas Davenport thriller from Sandford focuses on a serial killer who leaves creepy nude portraits of his women before killing them. A chance find leads the police to the killer's graveyard in the woods as they try to find "the artist" before he kills again. Some nice action and a couple of good twists and turns. Not the best in the series but not the worst. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pauline | 2/5/2014

    " Porn angle wasn't too overwhelming. Interesting look into the "mind" of the killer. not the best reveal but not too predictably tied together either "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ricardo | 1/18/2014

    " The write-ups on the cover are too generous. It's an okay book, but nothing spectacular "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 1/15/2014

    " The ending was predictable, but it was otherwise a good, entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vfields needs to be happy! | 1/2/2014

    " I've read all the "Prey" series with Lucas Davenport - enjoy the character and the plots "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jesse | 10/8/2013

    " This is a book that I categorize as a trash novel, and it mostly sucked, once the plot became transparent, about half-way through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 9/26/2013

    " I am remembering some of the background story line because it has been a long time since I read the other books in this series. This one was ok, not much of a mystery, more of suspense. I want to complete the rest of the series over time. I do cringe at some of the language and sex scenes. "

    " Question in this book is how Lucas is going to identify the murderer, we know who it is. in this story Lucas seems to be skating on the edge of legality in getting the information he needs to get the culprit. Moves quickly and features, Marcy in a new role. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 2/4/2011
