Publisher's Summary

Hoping to escape unwanted celebrity in the aftermath of a notorious incident, Ramsey Hunt settles in the Rockies, determined to bury himself in the safety of a solitary existence. But his isolation is shattered when he stumbles upon a small girl unconscious in the high-altitude forest.

When strangers pursue Ramsey to his private meadow in an attempt to kill him and the girl, he's mystified that anyone would wish her harm. And the child can't shed any light on the subject: she's mute.

Molly Santera, the girl's mother, catches up with Ramsey and her daughter, mistaking her daughter's savior for a kidnapper. But soon Ramsey's real role becomes clear. With the strangers in pursuit, the trio flees to Chicago for sanctuary. Even there, however, the child's enemies prove as relentless as their motives are baffling.

With an unexpected assist from FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock (last seen in The Maze), Molly and Ramsey begin to unravel the clues, and in the process they make an astonishing discovery as to the true nature of the target.

Listen to another FBI Thriller.

The Target

One of her best books. A lot of suspense. The reader takes away from the book slightly but otherwise an excellent read.

I enjoyed it

I liked this book. The story was a good one and Ms Coulter consistantly writes her stories well. This is one of them. The reader was very good. I would definately recomend this to my friends.

Very suspenseful

This is one of Catherine's better books. The suspense is great. The story take a few twists to keep you guessing. I thought I had it figured out several times along the way, only to find out I was wrong. Great character development. It's hard to stop listening.

Implausible story and trite plot

Could not even finish this book... Were it not for some of the reference to child molestation, this book would seem more suited to teens than adults. It is simply unthinkable that the people in this book would conduct themselves as they do... a federal judge on sabbatical finds a brutalized child and decides not to contact the police or FBI.. just keeps her for a week.... Gets in a shootout... wounds two guys and is wounded himself...and still does not contact law enforcement.. And the readers sing-song cadence drove me crazy.. Could not even finish it!

Narrator

I am a fan of Catherine Coulter but I feel the book has been ruined by the narrator. The characters can't even be respected due to the poor reading of this book. I have felt this about all the books I have listened to of Catherine's. I guess it will be better if I just read her books.

Narrator problem

This story was too long, too much like a romance novel, the narrator’s voice was totally inappropriate for the story.
Her voice is more appropriate for a sweet, cozy mystery. Won’t listen to this narrator again in the series.

The Target

I felt this book was well written. The story certainly kept me interested and looking forward to picking up where I left it earlier. Liked the mystery of the story, the progression and loved the end. In the beginning I was trying to figure out what was bothering me. I finally realized, I didn't really like the way Sharon Williams read the part of Emma.

Slow but with Firecrackers

The story begins a bit slowly and is even a bit hoaky but evens out with much fun and plenty of mystery. As always with Coulter, the characters personality shines through the rather fantastical storyline. I loved it and even though I had my suspicions, the ending caught me by surprise.

pretty good

I like this book, I do get tired of the wholesome "almost virgin" type characters. but the story is good overall.
