Does trouble follow Jack or does he come looking for it? In Webb Hubbell’s third legal thriller, A Game of Inches (Beaufort Books, June 2016), DC attorney Jack Patterson tackles the NFL, fantasy sports, and the power of information in our nation’s capitol.

NFL Rookie of the Year, Billy ‘Glide’ Hopper, has been charged with the gruesome murder of a young mystery woman in his locked hotel room at the Mayflower hotel in Washington, DC. Trouble is, Billy has no memory of the events of the night. Drawn in by his friend Judge Marshall Fitzgerald’s unshakable belief in Billy, Jack is determined to establish Billy’s innocence and get to the bottom of the murder. As the mystery deepens, he calls on old friends and colleagues to help him solve the puzzle. They find themselves at war with a powerful and sinister force, and both Jack and those closest to him are literally in the line of fire. In A Game of Inches Hubbell illustrates the role big money information, and influence have on DC politics and how fantasy sports is changing the NFL and the game of football itself. Murder is just the tip of the iceberg.

Hubbell’s first Jack Patterson novel, When Men Betray is an IndieFab winner, and the second, Ginger Snaps, won the IPPY Gold Medal in the suspense/thriller category.
