Overview

Suspenseful thrillers like Eyes of Prey and Easy Prey have shot Pulitzer Prize-winner John Sandford to the top of best-seller lists everywhere. Whenever wickedly twisted villains show up in the Twin Cities, Minneapolis cop Lucas Davenport is there to match wits with them. James Qatar fancies himself an artist, though his most compelling work comes from using his computer to combine secret photos of unsuspecting women with pornographic images from the Internet. But when one of his "models" discovers his secret, Qatar develops a more stimulating artistic talent: murder. Only Lucas Davenport has the skill and cunning to track down Qatar before he creates another "masterpiece." With the sharp wit and authentic touches of detail that always set Sandford apart, Chosen Prey is a great addition to a sensational series. Richard Ferrone's hard-edged narration gives the action all the bite of a Minnesota winter wind.

Chosen Prey

  • Book Rating: 5/5

This was a deeper, more character-driven Prey book. It's in this book that fans are caught up on everybody in the series. Also, we can see that things will be taking a turn job-wise for a few and maybe a baby for Lucas and Winter.
