I normally don't read these type of books, but it was given to me so I tried it. It is about a serial killer. I thought it was pretty good. Easy to read mostly. It was an interesting side to police work. If you like an edge of your seat book, this one is for you.
Lucas Davenport hurries to solve yet another case....John Sandford once again outdoes himself with another book in the Prey series!!
The 12th in the "Prey" series. This one's one of the best! Even though you know from the start who the killer is, you're on the edge of your seat to the very end. And the end is SO good. I like John Sandford's books, and I love his handling of police procedures. I also like that you can start anywhere in the series and not feel that you've missed a whole lot by not having read the previous books. Try it, you'll love it!
A harrowing murder mystry.
Pretty good thriller about the search for a serial killer who doctors photographs of his intended victims to make it appear they were posing for porn shots. The resolution isn't a total shock if you've been reading between the lines.
he desired women all kinds all shapes, all sizes,he would fix a woman and build imaginary stories around them , if you like john sanford you will enjoy.
When a spring thaw disinters the body of a young woman who's been missing for over a year, Minneapolis detective Lucas Davenport doesn't have much to go on except the victim's rumored connection with an unnamed man, who may be an artist and also, perhaps, a priest. But then the deserted property where her body was discovered turns out to be a killing field full of other young blondes last seen in the company of a man with a nasty habit of superimposing their faces on pornographic drawings. Davenport begins to close in on a serial killer whose perverted hobby provides the clues Davenport needs to stop him in his bloody tracks. James Qatar isn't a priest, and he's not really an artist, but he's definitely a monster, one who's met his match in Davenport.
Excellent book worth reading
" An art history professor and writer and cheerful pervert, James Qatar had a hobby: he took secret photographs of women and turned them into highly sexual drawings. One day he took the hobby a step further and... well, one thing led to another, and he had killed her. A man in his position couldn't be too careful, after all. And you know something? He liked it."
He desired women. All kinds, all shapes, all sizes. He would fix on a woman and build imaginary stories around her. Some of the women he knew well, others not at all. Most of them faded quickly. Only a few become objects of desire.

Already faced with a welter of confusion in his personal life, Deputy Chief Lucas Davenport decides to take this case himself, hoping that some straightforward police work will clear his head, but as the trail begins to take unexpected turns, it soon becomes clear that nothing is straightforward about this killer. The man is learning as he goes, Lucas realizes, taking great strides forward with each murder. He is becoming a monster---and Lucas may have no choice but to walk right into his lair...
I really enjoy all the Prey books.
