Publisher's Summary

A threat inside the government. A whistleblower’s life on the line. It’s up to Jon Reznick to bring justice.

When hacker Trevelle Williams discovers documents that threaten national security and put his life in jeopardy, there’s only one person he can turn to - Jon Reznick. Williams has learned that Rosalind Dyer, a key congressional witness, is about to be killed in order to stop her testimony. She has stumbled into the middle of a cover-up that goes deep into the United States government. Dyer knows her days are numbered, but that won’t stop her from doing what she has to do.

Trevelle Williams has helped Jon out of many a scrape in the past. Now, Jon is the only person he can turn to for help saving Rosalind’s life, as well as his own, and protecting national security in the process.

With enemies on all sides, including within the United States government, can Jon and Trevelle get to Rosalind in time? They’re her only hope to escape her pursuers and bring these secrets to light.

J. B. Turner packs a lot into a six hour novel!!

HARD TARGET is the eighth novel in the Jon Reznick political thriller series by J. B. Turner. It is a fast paced novel with a great plot and lots of action and suspense. Although part of a series it is a standalone. As always I recommend that the potential listener read the publisher's summary which in this case is perfect at setting up Hard Target. I very, very highly recommend this novel! Jeffrey Kafer does a nice job of narration.

Hard Target is free to borrow and listen for those with Kindle Unlimited. In my case I decided I wanted to keep a copy of the novel so I purchased the Kindle version for $5.99 which allowed my to purchase the audio version at Amazon.com for $1.99.

Maybe the best one yet!

If this was an actual book I would give every page a 5 star rating. I've read each book in order and absolutely love this series. I immediately purchased the next one. If a book doesn't start out entertaining and keep my interest I simply can't hang with it. Loved them all.

A Pervasive Sense Of Injustice

As always the narration was phenomenal!

Now, as to the story. Reznick is called upon to protect his favorite hacker and a whistleblower. There is a pervasive sense of the injustice of people in trusted positions of power and authority misusing trained personnel and taxpayer money to illegally enrich themselves, no matter who gets hurt. 2Tim 3 speaks eloquently about this behavior and Rev9: 21 says they will not repent, no matter how they are called to account for their actions. Within the story, even Reznick recalls a Scripture his dad taught him. An airport scene makes this quite clear...in practice.

Martha Meyerstein is such a hardnose re: following the rules it made my stomach hurt, yet she is following orders. Reznick's assassin training gave him the strength to go outside man's rules with impunity. Having been a part of that system, Reznick now has the integrity to do what he sees is right! Because of him, Meyerstein is learning that willful blindness isn't a good thing! Meyerstein's boss...there's something not kosher there that I hope to see further developed soon. And there is betrayal of what should have been iron clad loyalties. Plus more discussion regarding Reznick's reliance on amphetamines not being a good thing. I'd like to see Reznick drinking green tea with gingko biloba and peppermint to aid in his recovery from addiction. All 3 would help detox his body while increasing the clarity and alertness of mind he wants. Triple Leaf Teas have a great formula in teabags or the PreMixed Arizona Rx Elixir/Energy Tonics canned beverages and would be something he could get easily on the go for 99¢ at any drugstore, market or in bulk online. I'm sure his daughter could suggest he use such things and he'd try it for her sake, lol. Carrying a small amount of airtight teabags can easily be done without adding any real weight to his backpack.

Meyerstein and Reznick's personal relationship is changing. That's a good thing! Ok, enough said.😁

Disappointing

I have enjoyed the previous books but this came across as though the author was not even trying anymore - the main female character at risk seemed two dimensional and seemed unreal - too much American ra ra ...
