Editorial Reviews

An extremely well-crafted and suspenseful thriller from master mystery writer William G. Tapply. Multiple plot lines featuring well-drawn characters - a seemingly perfect nominee for the Supreme Court, an actress writing her memoirs, and a former undercover cop fleeing a mobster, to name a few - collide in inventive ways here, and with unexpected results. Performer David Bryson's smoothly textured tones are an excellent fit for the story. Published posthumously, this may be Tapply’s last work, which also adds a certain poignancy to the tale.

Publisher's Summary

The Nomination is a fast-paced action and suspense thriller that brings events from the final days of the Vietnam War into direct conflict with contemporary American politics. Vietnam War hero and Massachusetts Judge Thomas Larrigan is hand-picked by his friend the president to fill the upcoming vacancy on the Supreme Court.
Larrigan seems like the perfect candidate: a family man with an uncontroversial judicial record. The president's credibility needs a sure bet. Larrigan will do anything to win the nomination, but he has some old skeletons rattling around in his closet. He calls his old Marine buddy, now a hit man, to sweep the closet clean. But there are a few skeletons Larrigan doesn't know are still alive.
The Nomination is the story of how lives can intersect in deception, desperation, revelation, death, and, ultimately, redemption.

What a good book!

If you could sum up The Nomination in three words, what would they be?

Just a good plot and story.

What about David Bryson’s performance did you like?

Everything! Good tone of voice. Perfect for the performance. Excellent characterization. Just knew the characters in my head. Will look for other books read by David Bryson.
