9780825307942: A Game of Inches: A Jack Patterson Thriller

Billy Hopper’s life is pretty damn good.  He’s a wide receiver for the Los Angeles Lobos and he’s just been named Rookie of the Year.  But he’s about to lose it all. On a frigid March morning at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., Billy wakes up to find that he’s been sleeping with a dead girl.  And now he’s got her blood on his hands―literally.  But he’s also got Jack Patterson: a D.C. lawyer who’s determined to get to the bottom of the murder and prove Billy’s innocence. There’s only one problem. They’re at war with a powerful, sinister man, and the people closest to Jack are in the line of fire. Can Jack and his team solve this case before his family pays the ultimate price?  This latest Jack Patterson thriller exposes the underbelly of the NFL and the role of big money in shady D.C. politics. Believe it or not, murder is just the tip of the iceberg.

About the Author:

Webb Hubbell, author of When Men Betray and Ginger Snaps, is a nationally recognized author, lecturer, and speaker on government, business and leadership. He has held executive level positions in government and industry including: U.S. Associate Attorney General, Chief Justice of the Arkansas Supreme Court, Mayor of Little Rock Arkansas, Managing Partner of the second largest law firm in Arkansas, and Executive and Chief Counsel for a large Washington based Commercial Insurance Company.

Review:

“Webb Hubbell has quickly become one of my favorite authors. A Game of Inches was simply spectacular. It grabbed me from the opening sentence and my only disappointment at the end is now having to wait a year until the next one. A compelling and gripping read that easily puts Hubbell in the front row of must-read legal thrillers along with John Grisham, Scott Turow and Richard North Patterson. I’ve read all of Webb Hubbell’s books and this is easily my favorite. You will not put this book down.” 

(Paul Finebaum, sports author, ESPN radio and TV personality, described as the “leading sports authority in the South)

“A Game of Inches lets the reader jump right into a family of fond characters, and smart, fast-paced storytelling which offers insight into the powerful force that football has become in our society. From Webb’s playing days at Arkansas, he can uniquely entwine the loyalty and lifetime bond of teammates in his masterful writing.”

(Dr. Terry Don Phillips, retired Director of Athletics, Clemson University)

“Hubbell writes with consummate skill.  He knows how to make your senses come alive and your heart beat faster.  In A Game of Inches, he immerses the reader in the Washington intrigues Mr. Hubbell knows better than any other novelist.  I found myself rooting hard for the amiable Jack Patterson, whose best weapon is the modesty that lures his enemies into selling him short.  The greatest joy of this fast-paced, gripping novel is its unforgettable characters.  Webb Hubbell delivers the goods! Spending time with Jack Patterson has become my favorite escape―I can’t wait for the next novel!

(Steve Spruill, author of "Ice Men", "Sleeper", and "Rulers of Darkness")

"In a plot bursting with danger and complication, A Game of Inches spirals to a surprising conclusion."

(Dannye Powell, The Charlotte Observer)

“It’s been interesting to observe Webb Hubbell’s journey as a writer.  His latest book, A Game of Inches, is another step in joining a select group of writers that never fail to seize your attention.  This writer draws you into the plot, he mystifies you, he frightens you, he forces you to consider all possibilities but above all, he entertains you!” 

(Harry Thomason, producer of "Designing Women" and "Evening Shade")
