Book Review | The Nomination

Title: The Nomination: A Novel of Suspense

Author: William G. Tapply

My Review:

There is no way I could say anything that would do justice to The Nomination. I have been lucky enough as of late to read one good book after another but The Nomination is really in a league by itself. It’s smart, it’s crisp, it’s fast-paced, it’s suspenseful, it’s exciting, it’s believable, and it’s filled with a cast of compelling and captivating characters.

I admittedly do not read a ton of suspense novels because it’s not that easy to find the “right” one. William G. Tapply has created the “right” one, trust me. He has masterfully woven together a story that is complex yet is not overwhelming…once in which all the characters and events are interconnected and affect the others, in some manner. However, at no point does it seem forced or contrived or preposterous. In fact, The Nomination is seamless and believable and realistic.

This is a fine addition to the library of any (every) fan of suspense. I forced myself to sit on the beach until I finished this novel, in only my second sitting. It’s that intense, that fascinating. I loved this book and will, without question, add Tapply to my reading list. I encourage you to do the same.
