Overview
In this instant "New York Times" bestseller and high-stakes thriller Ali Reynolds spans continents to solve a cold case murder and to figure out who wants a young juvenile offender dead.
EVEN GHOSTS CAN'T HIDE FOREVER.
Lance Tucker, an incarcerated juvenile offender doing time for expertly hacking into the San Leandro School District's computer system, is set on fire and severely burned one night while hanging Christmas decorations in a lockup rec room. The police say that he did it to himself, but B. Simpson, Ali Reynolds's fiance and the man who helped put Lance in jail, feels obligated to get to the bottom of what really happened.
Lance is famous in the hacker world for developing GHOST, computer software that allows users to surf any part of the web completely undetected. And that kind of digital camouflage is seductive to criminal minds who will stop at nothing to get their hands on this revolutionary--and dangerous--technology.
Meanwhile, in England, Ali investigates the decades-old murder of Leland Brooks's father, which Leland himself was once suspected of committing. With Ali otherwise occupied and Lance receiving cryptic threats in the hospital, B. turns to Sister Anselm--a Taser-carrying nun and Ali's close friend--for help protecting the boy. With unsolved crimes on both sides of the Atlantic, Ali, B., and Sister Anselm are united by their search for answers--though being thousands of miles away may not be far enough to keep Ali from being drawn into the deadly line of fire.
From the "New York Times" bestselling author hailed for her "inimitable, take-no-prisoners style" ("Kirkus Reviews"), "Moving Target" sends Ali on a transatlantic adventure and straight into the path of a ruthless killer.

At the start of Jance’s engrossing ninth Ali Reynolds novel (after 2013’s Deadly Stakes), Ali, eager to escape the chaos surrounding her upcoming wedding to B. Simpson, travels from Sedona, Ariz., to England with her 80-something majordomo, Leland Brooks. Sixty years earlier, Leland’s family disowned him, and he left the country in disgrace. Now he and Ali discover there’s more to the story—including a long-unsolved murder. Meanwhile, someone succeeds in severely burning Lance Tucker, a teen hacker B. helped incriminate, at the San Leandro, Tex., juvenile facility where he’s being held. Feeling responsible and seeing himself in Lance, B. investigates who wants the boy dead and why, aided by his colleagues at the cybersecurity firm High Noon and Sister Anselm, an elderly nun with a Taser, who guards Lance’s hospital room. Jance provides enough backstory to orient readers new to the series, and longtime fans should enjoy insights into B.’s and Leland’s pasts. Agent: Alice Volpe, Northwest Literary Agency. (Feb.)
