it's always sad for me when I finish a J A Jance book, I read them so fast because they are always good. This one doesn't disappoint. I've been a follower of her levels for years, this is one in the Ali Reynolds series, very likeable characters always with lots of money to be able to do the cool detecting that she does.
I eagerly await her next novel. I hope it's Beaumont!

I was also fortunate enough to meet J A Jance at a book signing, she lives in the Seattle area as do I. she's a very

Dragged in many places and just not that interesting, but had one or two good twists. Not really worth your time unless you're a fan of the series or high-tech security plots.
Jance, J.A. , Moving Target, (2014). Simon & Schuster, N.Y.

Welcome to the world of the super- rich where middle-aged women fly first-class to London for a week to buy a wedding dress, taking their senior employee as a treat. The groom owns a multinational cyber security company, while the senior's nephew lives in Knightsbridge with his partner who owns a chain of restaurants. Add in a taser-toting nun and an a SEAL trained priest and there is certainly plenty of room for action.
"Moving Targ
#9 in the Ali Reynolds series. Ali travels to England with her property manager Leland Brooks, she buys a wedding dress and uncovers the murderer of Leland's father 60 years earlier. On the home front, Ali and fiancée B work to discover who wants to murder brilliant hacker Lance Tucker. Tucker had hacked his school system computer, a client of B's and he had traced the hacker. The prison sentence for what was essentially a prank seems excessive.

I read some of the other reviews before I wrote this. I enjoyed this book. I do like the Joanna Brady series more, but have not seen one for awhile. This book was still a fast read for me-so I guess I liked it a lot!

It is funny to see how some people loved it and others just hated it and said Ms. Jance's writing had changed. I thought it had a lot going on, so it is always good to keep your mind trying to figure out all the story lines and what is going on.

I am happy when I have a good book to s

Some interesting premises make this book tolerable. However, I have never read anything that so obviously has no clue about rights and protection of young people. I mean, they go to a school and have free reign to talk to students. In what cavalier, parallel universe does this occur? Also, after family members have been abducted, etc. other members are left unguarded or unmonitored. These oversights make this entire novel hard to accept except as a potential storyline with gaping holes of inadeq ...more

This is my 3rd book I've read by Mrs. Jance. There will not be a fourth. I read one novel of hers, Left for Dead, which was very predictable. I figured out the murderer on page 90. I read a second book of hers, cant recall the name, which was just awful and unreadable. I put that one down after about 75 pages. I decided I'd give Ms. Jance one more chance and picked up `Moving Target.' I did finish it, just out of curiosity to see how much worse it could be. I'll break down my critique into sever ...more

This is the first book by J A Jance that I have read, and I enjoyed the novel. I strongly disliked the use of an initial instead of a name. This feature will probably prevent me from reading more of the long list of J A Jance novels. I always enjoy a novel that has one than one plot, which this book contains. This is an advance and unedited copy, and the book contains many errors. I felt the characterization of Ali Reynolds to be a little weak. In the beginning, I felt that Ali was a young woman ...more

Jance has been writing good mystery series' forever and I've been reading them for that long. Ali is rather a newbie (next to Brady and Beaumont)so I have not been as attached. I thought,however, Jance outdid herself on this one--making it the equal of any of the books in her older series. First, she managed to run two mysteries at once--gracefully (so many good authors fail at this). Second, she moves with the times. This book might be called a techno-thriller. How refreshing to have a heroine ...more
