Angela Wingate was once a wild child. Even so, her adoptive parents hung in there with her and were proud to call her their daughter. Incidentally, Angela is (as she says) brown and they are white.

Now both her parents are deceased and there seems to be some problem with her mother's will. Her parents were very wealthy and had a branch of Wingate Properties handle their finances while they tended more to their philanthropic activities. Seems there is a big problem with Angela's mother's will and Angela wants Cal Claxton to look into it. Of course, those running the family's business would benefit handsomely if the will stands as presented.

Angela feels that her mother's death was not a hit-and-run accident, but really a murder. The police don't seem to be alarmed at Angela's assertions that her mother was deliberately killed. A fortune is involved, most of which was to come to Angela. If what she claims about her mother's death is true, is Angela in danger of her life? The will that is in question seems to have an extra page that shouldn't be there.

Cal thinks that a Russian assassin has entered the picture and now both he and Angela could be targets. To make matters even worse, a derelict quarry has become active again and the noise and explosions are almost in Cal's backyard. If he wants to keep his home and the tranquility it affords him, he must go to court to prove the mining is against the law. What more could go wrong?

Moving Targets by Warren C. Easley is well worth a read. I enjoyed it very much.
