    Captivating plot, badass characters and strong emotions make up this excellent novel that grabs your attention till the very last page.I was genuinely surprised by how refreshing I found The Hubley Case to be. It is J.Lee's debut novel, but I simply would not have been able to come to that conclusion had I not been told beforehand. The entire narrative is written with the finesse of that of a veteran writer.Slight Spoiler AlertThe story picks up ...

    J. Lee's debut novel starts off with a literal bang---Peter Hubley brutally murdered in Brazil. From there, the action picks up considerably. As a debut novel, I found this to be particularly well written and a quick-read. The 270 pages of the Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) flew by and I found myself unable to put it down!Lee weaves a tale of murder and international intrigue. I found myself gasping when twists would come--and come, they do! Do yours...

    Thanks J. Lee for giving me the chance to read this before its release! I really liked this book. I was hooked right from the first chapter. It was well written and kept me guessing about just who was involved up to the last chapter. I would definitely recommend this if you like murdrer mysteries with lots of twists.
  • WillowRaven
    Excellent debut book from this author!! The first chapter or so were a little slow however once it picked up, it never lost momentum. Quite a few twists, and a surprise at the end - I didn't see it coming. I'm guessing a #2 will be in the works? If so, I can't wait. If you enjoy psychological thrillers with a touch of real-life possibilities, then this is the book for you. Not quite spy/espionage, however it just borders on the outer fringes of i...

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Although it starts with the murder of an American businessman in Brazil, the story turns into so much more. The two main characters find themselves embroiled in a fight to bring down an unscrupulous mastermind. The storyline is convoluted with some surprises along the way that add to its interest. From time to time I got confused with the introduction or reintroduction of some o...
  • Maxwell Lopez
    J. Lee throws you right into the action on the very first page of this book, and it's a non-stop roller coaster of well executed twists and turns the whole way through! Thriller is not usually my go to genre, but I may have to start reading more if I can find books like The Hubley Case. The character development is really what left me wanting more, I hope he's got more of agent Benton and Ben Siebert on the horizon!
  • Kathryn Notestine
    Not much of a mystery, crime fiction kinda gal, but mention two of my favorite cities--Chicago and Sao Paulo--and I will have to pick up the book! The Hubley Case did not disappoint, there was so much action and twists in the plot that I had a hard time putting it down! Interesting characters and vivid description made me feel like I was a part of the action, trying to solve the mystery of Peter Hubley's murder with Nikki Benton and Ben Siebert. ...
  • T Olsen
    If this is the first novel from this author, it's a good start. It's well written with a good story and OK plot. The things I didn't like were some improbable actions, a few factual mistakes and some "dead meat" (2 pages about why a journalist wanted to be a journalist seems unnecessary). But all in all a good read!

    The Hubley Case was a great debut for J. Lee! It has a great storyline, awesome misdirection, and a great group of characters that keep a steady pace of curiosity building from the first page! I honestly couldn’t put this down and it took a few days bc of a surgery I had. Again J Lee couldn’t have done a better job!
  • Marissa DeCuir
    WOW! I cannot believe how amazing this book is. J.Lee writes such an exciting thriller. I was so drawn into the murder of Peter Hubley that I wanted to become an investigator. I can definitely say readers are in for treat when they pick up THE HUBLEY CASE. I can see J.Lee work going far.
  • Joe
    A strong debut, with an intricate yet plausible plot, and two compelling leads (Ben and Nikki). I thought the level of violence at the end, on the part of the hero, seemed a little over the top, but that might be me not knowing the genre well enough. A fun read!
  • Ramona
