The Confirmation (Paperback)
Not currently shipping from publisher – Subject to future availability
Newly elected U.S. president Bob Long is weighing reports of nuclear weapons in Iran when he learns Justice Peter Corbin Franklin, 86-year-old liberal conscience of the Supreme Court, has suffered a massive stroke. With pressing same-sex marriage and abortion laws as well as a huge antitrust case on the court's docket, the door is open for Long to appoint a conservative replacement, repaying the twenty-one million evangelicals who voted for him.
But it won't be that easy. Long suffers a series of political missteps while his court nominee, Marco Diaz, endures vicious character accusations in the media for his religious beliefs and rumors of a tragic past.
Meanwhile, terrorists in Iran have hijacked more nuclear materials and are threatening to bomb a major city if the U.S. or Israel attacks. Chaos reigns in the nation's capitol . . .
Praise for The Confirmation:
"A roller coaster ride of a political thriller. You won't be able to put it down."
Mark R. Levin, nationally syndicated radio host
New York Times best-selling author of Liberty and Tyranny
"As a participant in Supreme Court confirmations as a member of the United States Senate, I know The Confirmation weaves a tale that, while fictional, is true. Ralph Reed shines a bright light on the backroom deals, special-interest-group pleading and the politics of personal destruction that plague judicial confirmations, but he does so in a way that is ultimately hopeful and inspiring."
Rick Santorum, former U.S. Senator (R-PA)
“If you think ‘it can’t happen here,’ then don’t read this book. The Confirmation reminds me of the old dramas which concluded by stating, ‘Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.’
The Confirmation is only part fiction---the issues are as real as a massive heart attack.”
John Ashcroft, U.S. Attorney General, 2001-2005
