Overview

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

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When newly elected President Bob Long learns that a Supreme Court justice has suffered a debilitating stroke, he sees his opportunity as a devout evangelical Christian to replace the liberal judge with a more conservative one who will support his stance against same-sex marriages and abortion. At the same time, the United States struggles to deal with Iranian terrorists. VERDICT Ripped straight from today's headlines, this second political thriller (after Dark Horse) by the former executive director of the Christian Coalition is a well-written page-turner filled with well-developed characters. Evangelical readers enthralled with current politics will enjoy it, but be careful of recommending it to more liberal CF readers.

    Exciting and fast paced!

    If you enjoy political fiction and drama, don't miss out on The Confirmation by Ralph Reed. This is a very fast paced, exciting story and is the follow up book to Reed's debut novel, Dark Horse. I like how this book grabs the reader and takes off right from the first page. The story is relevant to today's headline news and makes for a fast moving page turner. Readers are taken behind the scenes to life in the White House which is full of back-stabbing, undermining and drama. As former California governor, Bob Long assumes his new presidency he also assumes the threats of terrorism and nuclear warfare along with hard-core issues of abortion, sex scandals and same-sex marriage that have been plaguing the White House. As tensions mount, Supreme Court Justice Peter Corbin Franklin suffers a stroke and his life hangs in the balance. With his recovery uncertain, President Long finds himself possibly facing the decision of replacing Justice Franklin, a decision that could cause long term fall out for his presidency. The White House goes on death watch, waiting for news about the Justice's prognosis. The President begins to feel pressure from all sides as he finds himself at a crossroads, ultimately having to choose between doing the right thing or caving to those who want to manipulate him. There is a lot of action and characters to keep up with in this story, but if you enjoy political fiction this story will keep you reading long into the night.

    Search & Destory or Confirmation Hearings

    "The Confirmation" by Ralph Reed is a fictional political thriller set in the near future. The book starts with the election of Bob Long for the presidency. President Long is the first independent president and, even though he doesn't know it, is in for rollercoaster ride. Early in Long's tenure, Supreme Court Justice Peter Corbin Franklin, the "liberal conscience" of the Supreme Court, dies during troubled times when same-sex marriage is on the ballot, Roe v. Wade is being challenged and a huge anti-trust suite against an Internet conglomerate is on its way to the court's docket. Franklin's demise opens the door for Long to appoint a conservative judge as a way to repay the millions of evangelical Christians who helped him put into office. Together with his team of political sharks, President Long takes on the Democratic Senate and the bitter Republican Party in a nasty smearing campaign of his nominee - Marco Diaz, which, if confirmed, will be the second Latino judge . All this while Ethiopian pirates stole a boat load (literally) or weapons' grade uranium, Iran has developed a nuclear bomb and making sure Israel's hawkish candidate wins the office of Prime Minister. Let me admit this right off the bat, I'm a bit of a political junky and I'm especially interested in Constitutional Law - in an amateurish manner (I read "The Federalist Papers" several times and keep it for reference). I try and read all the Supreme Court decisions because I realize that they affect our everyday lives even though it might not seem like it..but, I enjoy reading them. I especially enjoy the opinions of the justices I usually don't agree with. What I found most enjoyable in "The Confirmation" was the inside knowledge on how decisions were made, regardless of the politics of parties (the liberal left are the opposition in this novel). I have not always agreed with the views of the protagonist, nor did I always agree with their opposition since I try and evaluate each case separately regardless of party ideology (as our Founding Fathers intended), yet the way the politicians viewed the confirmation, the hidden agendas, power games and political backstabbing were fascinating to read. Mr. Reed, who has worked in politics, writes fluidly and with conviction. It seems he is very familiar with the act, which we know as confirmation of Supreme Court nominees, but in reality is nothing but a search and destroy mission by Congress Even though I felt that the author's more conservative views prevailed, he still tried, and I believe managed, to respectfully introduce the opposing points of view. Towards the end, the book got a bit preachy; however I did not feel it took away from the story. If you ever watched "The West Wing" and enjoyed the staff's bickering more than the drama - this book is for you. From more book reviews please vist http://www.ManOfLaBook.com
