The Moving Targetby Ross Macdonald
Synopses & Reviews
Like many Southern California millionaires, Ralph Sampson keeps odd company. There's the sun-worshipping holy man whom Sampson once gave his very own mountain; the fading actress with sidelines in astrology and S&M. Now one of Sampson's friends may have arranged his kidnapping.
As Lew Archer follows the clues from the canyon sanctuaries of the megarich to jazz joints where you get beaten up between sets, The Moving Target blends sex, greed, and family hatred into an explosively readable crime novel.
As Lew Archer investigates the kidnapping of Southern California millionaire Ralph Sampson, he is drawn from the canyon sanctuaries of the megarich to the casual violence of seedy jazz joints.
