Description
He seems like such a nice man. You'd never guess what was going on in his mind...
Art history professor James Qatar has a hobby: he takes secret photographs of women to fuel more elaborate fantasies. When he's alone. Behind locked doors. Then one day, he goes a step further and... well, one thing leads to another. Qatar has no choice. He has to kill her. And you know something? He likes it.
When Deputy Chief Lucas Davenport takes the case, he assumes it'll be straightforward police work. He couldn't be more wrong. As the investigation trail takes some unexpected turns, it becomes clear that nothing is straightforward about this killer, his victims, or his motives. And to stop him Lucas has no choice but to walk right into his lair.

        Starred review from April 23, 2001
        The 13th title in the Prey series (Easy Prey, etc.) has wealthy Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport in up to his Porsche-driving fingertips. Lucas is trying to track an elusive serial killer while reuniting with former fiancée Weather Karkinnen who—after a couple of years' estrangement following her narrow escape from a crazy biker in one of Lucas's former cases—has suddenly decided she wants to have his baby. Weather is a formidable distraction, but the killer—revealed to readers from the beginning as James Qatar, a suave professor of art history with a yen for strangulation—proves to require even more attention. Soon after the body of a young blonde is found in a partially excavated grave on a remote wilderness hillside, a deputy sheriff from backwater Wisconsin shows up with a file containing case histories of several women reported missing in Wisconsin and Minnesota over a nine-year period. Fearing the worst, Lucas orders the hillside surveyed; subsequent excavation uncovers seven more bodies. The art world connections of some of the victims and the discovery of pornographic drawings suggests a link to the art community around the local Catholic university. As the net tightens, the usually coolheaded Qatar, already plotting the fate of a daring fabric artist in cahoots with the police, gradually loses control. With Lucas and his team watching his every move, he eludes surveillance and carries out a final desperate attack. Sandford is in top form here, his wry humor and his development of Lucas's combative, affectionate relationship with Weather lighting up the dark of another grisly investigation. Simultaneous audio. (May)Forecast:Sandford's thrillers are reliably excellent, and his latest, a BOMC main selection backed by a national ad/ promo campaign and an author tour, marks a high point in the Prey series. The book should hit #1 its first week out.

        May 1, 2001
        Troubled by both city politics and his relationship with his fiancee, Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport finds the comfortable routines of a murder investigation as soothing as a worn pair of jeans. The discovery of a young woman's body, missing 18 months, leads to a local pornographic photography ring that posts its handiwork on the Internet. In the confiscated files, Lucas finds a photo of a woman who was standing near the site where the victim's body was found. An excavation uncovers eight more bodies, turning a routine homicide investigation into a desperate search for a monster. This thirteenth Prey novel shows signs that the series may be getting a bit stale. The investigation is routine by procedural standards, and only the last quarter of the novel generates any suspense, as the killer appears to wriggle out of Davenport's net before being pulled back in by an unlikely hand. The good news is that Davenport seems poised for significant personal and occupational changes, which may invigorate future cases. Sandford fans won't consider this one of the series' best, but even mediocre Sandford offers solid entertainment.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2001, American Library Association.)
