Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"Ferrone's light style is perfect for the banter between Minneapolis homicide investigator Lucas Davenport and his colleagues, and he has no problem dialing up creepiness when voicing James Qatar, art teacher by day and remorseless killer, dubbed 'The Gravedigger', by night. Sandford's story, twelfth in his long-running Prey series, is taut and involving, and Ferrone serves it well." (AudioFile)

a great Sandford thriller

I just never tire of this author -- the suspense always get me. I think "Winter Prey" is the best of the Prey series, but this one leads you an unmerry chase all the way. The reader knows what is going on, but has to watch the great Lucas Davenport put it all together. A bit different from some of the other Prey novels, and another notch in Sandford's belt.

Realistic presentation of police probllems

This is a sad but highly realistic look both at the mind of a serial killer, and at the problems police have in trying to obtain definitive evidence to convict the killer. The murderer in this case is intelligent, meticulous and careful to avoid leaving real clues about his crimes. A very gripping, unhappy tale.
