Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from another good prey book This time the serial killer is art history professor James Qatar. He is fixated on young blondes. This is a great Prey book. The reader knows the killer and gets to watch as Lucas Davenport and his team stumble their way through the clues. Davenport is back with Weather and a marriage is being planned and maybe even a child. Davenport seems to have settled down somewhat and even grown up a bit. Loved the book and the development of the characters

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Typical Read As always John Sandford gets the reader from the beginning and keeps them riveted to the end. Following along with the same characters as in the past the reader feels as if they are part of the group. The reader is going to start feeling for Lucas Davenport as the women in his past start to be, while he just is. It's nice to read a book, written by a man, who makes the main male character fallable. No one is perfect, we all have our faults, but in a world of fiction it's also good to know that these people make mistakes too. A good and enjoyable read. I'm looking forward to the next one.

From the Publisher

The #1 bestselling novelist returns with his most harrowing Prey of all: the story of a congenial man with a decidedly uncongenial hobby.

From the Jacket

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 John Sandford's work, Chosen Prey is a masterpiece of suspense.
