He's done it again! I think John Sandford just gets better and better, and I'm glad he does. Plot, action and even compassion for the victims - Lucas Davenport is the perfect tough guy/cop.

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

After starting to read this book, I just couldn't put it down. There was always something interesting happening, and you get caught up in this Triller with no way to escape.
James Qatar has a thing for the neck of pretty blondes, and can't keep away from them. After a dead body has been found he no longer feels safe and becomes more and more careless. Even though he knows he cannot keep feeding his desire, it just gets too stong. Capable of anything, he finds himself another pretty blonde...
Lucas Davenport is the brilliant Deputy Chief who, despite the difficulties he sees the future will bring, takes on the mission to stop the killings and find out who is the one behind it all.
Sandford is a brilliant writer and once you start reading it, there's no way out. His way of writing makes you feel that you're in the middle of it all, experiencing and seeing everything through the eyes of the writer.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves ficion!!

It takes a great thriller writer to keep me guessing throughout and satisfied in the end. THANK YOU, Mr. Sandford! A true writer's-writer; someone who inspires.

Be prepared to rarely get up from your seat once you start Chosen Prey. Sandford's characters are very credible, three dimensional and well-developed, and Lucas Davenport continues to be one of the more interesting "good guys" in crime fiction. The plot is very suspenseful and riveting. In typical Sandord style, there is no surprise as to who the killer is, yet the need for non-stop reading of his books is to see how the killer is caught. If you've read some of the other books in the "Prey" series, you'll know that how the criminal is brought to justice is not always in the way you'd suspect. Chosen Prey is a book I think you'll enjoy very much. As I said, though, be prepared to delay other things you need to do because you won't want to put this book down. It's well worth you're time and money.

This was the first John Sandford book I have read, and I have to totally disagree will all that say this is a stand alone book. It does quick well alone, and now that I know there are others in the series I will go back and read them as well.
Lucas Davenport chases a serial killer through this novel who has more fashion sense then conscience. His only leads in the beginning are some poorly (at least in the eyes of the art community) sketched drawings of the now deceased women, and a huntch or two.
The character of Lucas Davenport feels very human, and his creator leaves you no choice other than to admire him for his skill as a detective, his sense of right and wrong, his ability to do what he thinks is right no matter what the cost, and his pateince with life as it throws one curve after another his way.

Here we go again. This one has my favorite ending yet. The often present suspicion hanging around Lucas at the end of a case, is masterfully handled. While Lucas is assuaging his conscience, his peers hold the hush, information leaks strategically to the press, and politicians praise the department for the way the case was handled although everybody knows something wasn't quite right. Mission accomplished. Justice served.
Once again... beautiful.
Think about it. Sandford doesn't start out with anything new. A serial murder and an investigation. Lots of people write that. Sanford just writes it right. He is a master of leading and feeding the mind of the reader. He leaves no stone unturned, no twist unraveled, and no question unanswered. Timing is flawless. The balance between plots and between characters, perfect.
This time we get the subtle, strong character of out of town Deputy Terry Marshall tagging along, stepping up when the heat is on, and stepping in to flip steaks on the barbee. Marshall is obscurely and perfectly developed for his supporting role here. Lucas and Del never give an opinion of Marshall. They more than tolerate him accompanying them on the case, but Sandford leaves it to the reader to form the opinion. Then we get Weather's opinion at the exact perfect time.
There aren't any words strong enough to describe the quality of John Sandford's writing. If you find a 'weakness', it is there deliberately. If you find a hole... Forget it! You're not gonna find a hole! Sandford could write Lucas Davenport all the way into the nursing home and it will be a blast!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked this book randomly and with great anticipation after reading the first two pages. I thought I had a sexy, suspense on my hands that would keep me up at night biting my fingernails. Boy was I wrong!
This book lacks any type of suspense. Sanford described the main players making them all sound deformed as well as thousand irrelevant characters. The killer was feeble and all of the cops were morons.
To make matters worse, the Sanford stirs in this ridiculous subplot about Detective Davenport and his girlfriend (who out of desperation due old age and not love becomes his fiancee) trying to have a baby. It had nothing to do with the story at all. I'm sure it's just a pathetic attempt to get the reader to pick up the sequel. But honestly, the characters are so bland you don't really care.
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who has to finish a book once they've started. Halfway through, you'll start to wish you were one of the killer's victims so that it would just be over!
