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.

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.

The Target

The performance brought the book to life. I read this years ago and I enjoyed revisiting. I recommend the series highly, the books stand alone so they don't have to be read in order.

The Diabolical Father

As usual I cant stop listening to these thrillers. I just love the plot and the characters and Especially the sweet little girl that stole her hero's heart. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I just love the Savages in your books. Your characters are so real to me.

Not good

I suppose the story is moderately interesting but I couldn’t stand the writing. Yet somehow, the narration was worse! She isn’t bad at women and children’s voices but the male voices were terrible. I don’t know whether it was the writing or the narration, but Ramsey was a ridiculous caricature. Even for something published in 1998, this seemed incredibly dated. So thrilled I got this as part of the Romance Package because it will be easy to get rid of it!

Just OK

The narrator did a good job with the characters. But the storyline was just OK. One thing that I just couldn't get past was the overuse of the same line in several spots. I know it may sound like a silly critique, but using the phrase "puke your toenails up" once was quite enough.
