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.

    "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.

    Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.

    "A Real Page-Turner ---"

    J.A. Jance's Ali Reynolds novels are hard to put down. I move the i-Pod speakers into the kitchen to do dishes and clean up as I listen. It's amazing how painless a distasteful chore becomes when you're listening to a good book.

    "Never caught my interest"
    Would you try another book from J. A. Jance and/or Karen Ziemba?

    sure - I like the JA Jance stories but this one is not so good.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Jeffery Archer or a re- read of one of William Kent Krueger's Cork series.

    Story
    "a cold case and a new case"

    I read somewhere that this is J. A. Jance’s 50th book. I believe this is the 9th book in the Ali Reynolds series. This book has two complicated mysteries one in England and one in Texas. Ali and Leland are in England to meet his family and B Simpson is in Texas looking into the ‘accident” of a young teenage computer hacker that his company had caught on behalf of their client the school district. Jance does a good job with developing the characters and the story details; it was no problem juggling the two mysteries in my mind while reading. The story has lots of technology and internet intrigue which sort of gives a warning about the security of your information on the net. I noted that Jance had the DNA scientist in the story been denied admittance to Oxford because she was a woman. The character goes to the USA to University and comes back to take over her Uncles DNA lab next to Oxford and only hires women. I had read that Jance was denied admission to the University of Arizona’s creative writing program because she was a woman. Women have made some progressed on the road to equality. Looks like this book is setting up for the next one to have Ali’s and B’s wedding. Karen Ziemba does a good job narrating the story.
