"The Report to the
Eugene Sullivan's second novel. In it, he tells the
tense story of a controversial Senate confirmation of
the first African-American nominated to be the Chief
Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Former Judge Tim Quinn,
the hero of Sullivan's first thriller ("The Majority
Rules"), is asked to help in the U.S.Senate confirmation
of recently nominated Justice Oscar Moorman to take the
"Center Seat" on the Supreme Court after the unexpected
death of the Chief Justice in the final months of
a "lame duck" Republican Presidency.
Set in November 2008, the
novel's confirmation battle is a judicial mirror of the
2008 Presidential campaign....the one difference is that
the votes of only 100 Senators, not the Country, will
make Moorman the first African-American to head one of
the Branches of the U.S. Government.
Judge Quinn, prosecutor
Vicky Hauser (also from "The Majority Rules"), and
Justice Moorman together battle the racial smears from
internet/media and the political attacks by the
opposition Senators as corporate interests and murder
drive the confirmation to its unexpected conclusion.
A take on Othello, Shakespeare's classic tale of calumny and
revenge, set against
the wheelings and dealings of Congress and the Supreme Court.
