Moving Target by J. A. Jance

Two mysteries come to a head during MovingTarget.  Leland Brooks returns to England for the first time in sixty years with his employer, Ali, at his side.  Leland goes to visit his estranged family and discovers that his father’s death sixty years earlier was not due to illness or accident as he assumed, but murder.  Meanwhile in the States Ali’s betrothed B. Simpson is looking into the “accidental” burning of a teenager his company helped incarcerate for hacking his school’s server.  Turns out the burning was probably not accidental and neither were other related deaths.  The teenager reportedly made some amazing new code, and people are willing to kill and die for it.

This was my first Jance mystery and it was probably not a great place to jump in.  There was a lot about wedding planning and not having any background of the characters I didn’t really care about the wedding planning portions.  Thankfully they were very limited.  The story moved after the first disc, and I was intrigued with both storylines.  I didn’t like the voice actor though, her accents were weird.  She seemed to have issues going between American and British accents and her British sounded off, almost a little Australian, to me.
