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.

    I loved this book. They story and characters are so interesting you would think Hollywood would have made a movie. It does not let go from beginning to end. I highly recommend!

    If you know the oeuvre, you'll love the book; its the whole ball of wax. The enchilada. Wisecracks, off color jokes, a sense of style & sex, a violent guy and a handsome dick (well, detective) with a pretty girl on his arm. From the get go, you're in for a too-fast ride in a cabriolet with the top down. Mute the phone, get a beer, and turn the key. Will. Not. Disappoint.
  • Beautifully Crafted

    Chosen Prey is a very well conceived and written novel. While we know who did it very early on, the weaving of details, personalities, and actions makes for a fascinating read. While not a "fun" read, it grabs you and doesn't let go until the end.

    The type of book you can set down and pick it up again, start reading again and not reread. Keeps you interested.
