|Plot Summary of Moving Target|
|"At first, her grandmother's death in her isolated desert home didn't seem strange. But, once Sarena receives the letter the woman who raised her had left with her lawyer, Sarena knows differently. And the illustrated pages that accompany it are small clues to what Sarena comes to find out is a massive--and historical--mystery. She takes her pages to Erik North, an expert and collector of the beautifully crafted manuscript pages, and instantly senses that they she and Erik are and have been connected. Erik and Sarena embark on a dangerous journey to find the rest of the manuscript. However, whoever killed Sarena's grandmother is determined to kill Sarena as well--and anyone else who gets in the way."
