The Promise - Snap #707

On the next Snap, "The Promise." Some of them are worthless, some of them have infinite value, and some will never know how much they are worth... until you have to cash them in.

The Spy's Son


Bryan Denson was a court reporter for The Oregonian newspaper in Portland. It could be mind-numbing work sitting in the cheap seats of the American justice system. But then one day he got a tip about an espionage case coming in. The defendant was 24-year-old Nathan Nicholson. For Bryan it would turn out to be the story of a lifetime. For Nathan, it was the beginning of the end. 

To learn more about Nathan’s story, make sure to grab a copy of Bryan Denson’s book: The Spy’s Son. You can check out his other work at bryandenson.com.

Bryan also wrote a six-part series of Nathan’s story for The Oregonian, which you can check out here

A big thanks to The Oregonian/OregonLive for allowing Snap Judgment to use tape from Bryan Denson’s interview with Nathan Nicholson.
