Webb Hubbell, The Eighteenth Green

Saturday, February 9   |   2:00 pm

Who was Harold Spencer?  All D.C. Lawyer Jack Patterson knew was that Spencer’s dead body had been found on the 18th Green of Columbia Country Club, cancelling Jack’s Saturday golf game.

Who is Rachel Goodman? Her name has been plastered on the front page of every newspaper in the country for weeks, branded as a thief of confidential information vital to U.S. National Security and a spy for Israel. Turns out she is also the daughter of Jack’s long-time friend and mentor, Ben Jennings.

Despite the opposition of his friends and clients, Jack feels compelled to defend Rachel. Jack and his team go to work against the Federal Government, the all-powerful military-industrial complex, most of the press and Congress, all of whom are convinced that Rachel is guilty and should receive the death penalty for her treason.

Clovis Jones, Jack’s long-time friend and confidante, is the victim of a vicious attack. The more Jack and his team dig, the more complicated and dangerous their work becomes. Even a volunteer group of Navy SEALs may not be enough protection. Who will be next?

Jack and his team discover the key to Rachel’s exoneration lies with Harold Spencer, the man found dead on the eighteenth green. Jack rushes to discover who killed Spencer and why, but Spencer’s murderer has now trained his sights on Jack, and will stop at nothing to prevent Jack from discovering why Rachel told him, “all is not as it seems.”
