Publisher's Summary

In this high-stakes thriller from New York Times best-selling author J.A. Jance, Ali Reynolds spans continents to solve a cold-case murder and to figure out who wants a young juvenile offender dead.
Lance Tucker, an incarcerated juvenile offender and talented hacker in his own right, is set on fire one night and severely burned while hanging Christmas decorations in a lockup rec room. B. Simpson, Ali Reynolds's fiance and the man who helped put Lance in jail, feels obliged to get to the bottom of what happened. With Ali off in England to help Leland Brooks at a reunion with his long-estranged family, B. turns to someone else to help out - Ali's good friend and Taser-carrying nun, Sister Anselm.
Meanwhile, in Bournemouth - Leland's hometown - Ali begins to investigate the decades-old murder of Leland's father, which Leland himself was once suspected of committing. With unsolved murders on both sides of the Atlantic, Ali, B., and Sister Anselm are united by their search for answers - and the jeopardy they get into as a result.
From the author praised for her "inimitable, take-no-prisoners style" (Kirkus Reviews), Moving Target sends Ali on a transatlantic adventure and straight into the path of a deadly killer.

Unbelievable plot and characters.Terrible dialogue

It's been 5 years since I read her "Taking the Fifth," which I panned. I somehow decided to give her another chance with a different protagonist with a mystery dealing with cyberspace. I'm sorry to say that I was right the first time--Unbelievable plot and silly prose, reminded me of fiction in Reader's Digest as opposed to, say, The New Yorker. At some points, I had the feeling this might have been written for a young adult audience, which might explain why the author felt she needed to spell everything out in elaborate detail and explain things more than once. Even then, I think it was lacking. Were it not for the narrator, I probably would not have finished. Despite her great ratings and popularity, I won't be reading any more from J.A. Jance.

Jance hits the target - Perfectly!

What did you love best about Moving Target?

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the ongoing story of Ali Reynolds and her wonderful aide Leland Brooks. The story line was exciting as was the second underlying story relating to Leland.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Loved the narrator's performance - though I am not sure if it was my aging ipod but the cut and joining of narration is at times annoying.

Any additional comments?

If you love Jance you'll love this next Ali Reynolds Mystery. Thanks J. A. Jance.
