The Nomination is a compelling page turner. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel from the front cover to the last page. Trying to figure out who prisoner number 14 was kept me reading more and more. The characters were very well developed and the different plots and twists were exciting. This novel is worth the read, hope others enjoy it much as I did. Keep up the good work, can't wait to read the next novel.

Congressman George Taylor has an opportunity to make history. As an influential U.S. Congressman, campaigner and good friend to President-Elect McKinley Collins, he will soon be announced as the first black nominee for Attorney General of the United States. His assistant Reginald Dawson is expected to succeed him his congressional seat once his he is confirmed. The nomination and confirmation process is an uphill battle from the beginning. A secret about his daughter Corky can be enough to end his chances but this secret is only the beginning. He must contend with a white segregationist senator who is heading the confirmations hearings and threatening to oppose George if he doesn¿t support him in his quest to end home rule in Washington D.C. The black politicians and black clergy, lead by the wily Reverend Washington also have agendas which George is expected to support. As background investigations begin he and Reginald work to keep these factions, the press and investigators at bay and Reginald attempts to protect George from the secret he knows about Corky. As Corky¿s secret spirals out of control Reginald is forced to own up to what he knows. Not only is he in the middle of Corky¿s issues, he is also in the middle of a love triangle with the secretary of George¿s political rival who happened to previously employ Reginald¿s fiancé. Both George and Reginald struggle to make the best decisions they can in the most difficult situations they¿ve ever faced. The struggles for both men are intertwined and the end result as they both work through the issues is surprising and dramatic. The Nomination is more than politics as usual. Not only does this book have the element of scandal that we¿re unfortunately use to observing but it gives a humanness that perhaps we don¿t see as much. The characters deal with questions of loyalty and friendship, love and family as ordinary citizens do. Added to this mix is the unique dynamics of the black political structure and the influence of the black clergy on the political process, making the Nomination well worth the read.
