When Men Betray is a delightful page-turner, a crime/mystery that captivates the reader from the first page with wonderfully detailed descriptions that made me feel I was in Little Rock. It is clear he drew liberally from his own fascinating life.

Webb Hubbell has been “in power “and “under power” and knows both sides of the street. This tale takes off with the speed of the pistol shot that opens it and never slackens its pace. Yet at the end of this intriguing, engaging thriller, you realize it is actually a tale about decency and values. I loved it and I know readers will, too.
Peter Coyote
A brilliant read.

In When Men Betray, Webb Hubbell’s insider knowledge of politics and natural storytelling ability combine for a shrewd mystery exposing the wooly underside of southern culture and government. May this be the first of many Hubbell novels.
