Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He desired women. All shapes, all sizes. He would fix on a woman and build imaginary stories around her. Some of the women he knew well, others not at all. Most of them faded quickly. Only a few became objects of desire.

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...

Synopsis:

Deputy Chief Lucas Davenport finds himself investigating a killer who is learning as he goes. The man is becoming a monster, and Lucas may have no choice but to walk right into his lair. In "Chosen Prey", Sandford returns with his most-harrowing novel of all: the story of a congenial man with a decidedly uncongenial hobby.
