Hard Target by J B Turner (Jon Reznick #8)

41go4J3e0YL Synopsis: When hacker Trevelle Williams discovers documents that threaten national security and put his life in jeopardy, there’s only one person he can turn to—Jon Reznick. Williams has learned that Rosalind Dyer, a key congressional witness, is about to be killed in order to stop her testimony. She has stumbled into the middle of a cover-up that goes deep into the United States government. Dyer knows her days are numbered, but that won’t stop her from doing what she has to do.

Trevelle Williams has helped Jon out of many a scrape in the past. Now, Jon is the only person he can turn to for help saving Rosalind’s life, as well as his own, and protecting national security in the process.

With enemies on all sides, including within the United States government, can Jon and Trevelle get to Rosalind in time? They’re her only hope to escape her pursuers and bring these secrets to light.

My Rating: 4/5

My Review: I am SO happy that Trevelle finally gets his time! Trevelle is a hacker that has been helping Jon Reznick for years, sadly this time around he is the one caught up and with trouble at his door he turns to the one person who he knows will help him. When Jon receives a call from Trevelle he knows he has to help him but has no idea how deep the problems are. 

As with any case Jon gets involved in, of course it has to involve top level Government and in this case a key congressional witness named Rosalind Dyer. The same as any JB Turner book the pace is set at around 100 miles per hour and kind of stays that way until the last chapter (I am expecting nothing less with these books these days). 

Of course Jon decides to involve Meyerstein who works for the FBI and puts her in the usual position of being piggy in the middle. The key to all this is to get Rosalind Dyer to her hearing and expose the high level threats. I loved this book and this series is my ‘go to’ when I need a fast paced thriller. For some reason this story line wasn’t quite as involved as others I have read but still a very satisfying read. As ever I will eagerly await the next book and would highly recommend this series.
