Saying it begins with “one heck of an opener” and calls it a “taut tale involving an array of interesting characters.” She goes on to say that the lack of complication can make for a ho-hum read, but “there is nothing ho-hum about “Ginger Snaps.”

Webb Hubbell delivers another dynamite legal thriller starring the engaging Jack Patterson.  I loved “Ginger Snaps.”

Ginger Snaps is a wonderfully intriguing crime mystery, involving the potential abuse of our post-9/11 national security apparatus; the medical use of marijuana, and its potential to help cure cancer; the often dark world of commercial sex; and the corrupt practice of allowing criminal prosecutors to seize private property from individuals who may never be charged with a crime. Hubbell tells a great story with vivid details that lure the reader deeper and deeper into the mystery.

Captivating from the beginning and never without intrigue, Ginger Snaps transports readers into the dark channels of Arkansas’s political and criminal landscape. Webb Hubbell vividly evokes the sights and textures of Little Rock while delivering a knockout story in this engrossing mystery thriller.

I don’t know how Webb Hubbell learned to write, but I sure know he did. He fashions masterful, stories of intrigue and human cupidity that hook me from page one. Ginger Snaps is the second Jack Patterson novel I’ve read and I’m committed to whatever other adventures of Jack’s leak out of Webb’s pen. His characters are human enough to make me love them, and just smarter enough than I am to make me stick with them and see how it all turns out. Put me down as first in line for the next one, Webb.

Jack Patterson is back and once again unwittingly swept up in another Little Rock firestorm involving tough attorneys, crackpot scientists and a cancer-cure breakthrough that has the Feds on edge. Webb Hubbell’s extensive experience in government lends a frightening air of authenticity to this suspenseful, twisted story.

Drawn by curiosity as well as a forgotten promise to his late wife, DC antitrust attorney Jack Patterson returns to Little Rock to learn why Stewart was growing hundreds of marijuana plants in his back yard. Jack enlists security expert Clovis Jones and local lawyer Micki Lawrence in a race against time to uncover why the Feds are refusing to allow Jack see his client, why someone will stop at nothing, including murder, to prevent him from investigating the case, and why Stewart’s wife, Liz, continues to insist its all about her not-so-secret – Ginger Snaps.
