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. 

Please note: This is the abridged edition. An unabridged version is also available.

Hear Lucas Davenport on the case in more of John Sandford's Prey novels.

The music is silly

I love John Sandford novels, especially Lucas Davenport and his crew. I was really looking forward to listening to this. So I start and there's this noir music as a production value. It was cheesy and weird. I'm really glad it's the only audible that I have listened to with the music. It's pretty lame and takes away from Richard Ferrone who is fantastic.

Kept me interested but...

Im just not fond of the constant sex scenes. Could have done without or just once or twice.
