Description

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.

        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.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Richard Ferrone's warm and folksy tones, perfectly at home with lighter works such as the comic thrillers of Lawrence Shames, might seem wrong for a slick and tense thriller like this one. However, things work out fine: Ferrone's light style is perfect for the banter between Minneapolis homicide investigator Lucas Davenport and his colleagues, and he has no problem dialing up creepiness when voicing James Qatar, art teacher by day and remorseless killer, dubbed "The Gravedigger," by night. Sandford's story, twelfth in his long-running Prey series, is taut and involving, and Ferrone serves it well. J.P.M. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine
