Mommy's a Mole


Unraveling the Joan Webster Murder &
Other Secrets in a CIA Family

By Eve Carson

This is a true story, written by one who lived it. Author Eve Carson writes about what happened in her own family, and her necessary search for justice.

The story actually begins many years ago. It is Thanksgiving weekend, 1981, and Joan Webster is traveling through Logan Airport. However, she never makes it to her destination; she comes up missing.

Married to Joan’s brother, and friends with Joan, author Eve Carson pursues justice for Joan and the family. She is horrified, but motivated by the things that she uncovers. Though for her it began with the disappearance of Joan, she finds that Joan may have been collateral damage. The more she learns, the messier the entire case gets. Things are not what they had seemed.

In this thick book, Eve goes over the case, people involved, and the evidence she uncovers in great detail. She includes a Timeline at the rear of the book, as well as copies of actual documents and proof. Her private investigation is thorough and impressive.

Sadly, as she finds herself embroiled in the case, Eve ends up losing her own family. Her husband and his family turn on her. There are many victims and extensive fall out in this story. However, Eve does not give up in her pursuit of justice. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the case is that the more “dirt” Eve uncovers, the more the authorities look away. 

It is my hope that Eve’s book will bring this case to the proper authorities, who will resolve this miscarriage of justice. Only then will healing begin.

  2. Sounds interesting but it seems that there's no resolution at the end. Am I wrong?
