I think you may be right. I see that there's a title MOVING TARGETS from 1988, which is about the right time frame (I remember that I read it in the army). You would think that I'd remember a guy named Nebraska before remembering a word his girlfriend's name rhymed with, but who knows?

On the other hand, Mark suggested that it might be a guy named Mallory, who also sounds familiar to me. A quick check does't list any titles that ring a bell, but I didn't realize what a prolific writer Collins is.

My thanks to both of you gentlemen.
