Publisher's Description

A corrupt judge in a mob murder case. A disillusioned pastor, hungry for power. A cynical reporter, sniffing for a scandal. A gambling addict whose secret tape threatens the lives of everyone who hears it. New York Times bestselling author, Lee Strobel, weaves these edgy characters into an intricate thriller set in a gleaming, suburban megachurch, a big-city newspaper struggling for survival, and the shadowy corridors of political intrigue. The unexpected climax is as gripping as the contract killing that punctuates the opening scene.

Author Bio

With a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale, Lee has won four Gold Medallions for publishing excellence and coauthored the Christian Book of the Year. He serves as Professor of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University. Visit Lee's website at: leestrobel.com

Publisher's Weekly

Bestselling nonfiction writer Strobel (The Case for Christ) makes his fiction debut with a legal thriller that draws on his background in legal journalism. In Chicago, which specializes in deep-dish corruption, the mobster Bugatti brothers want a murder case steered to the right judge, so they send a payoff to Judge Reese McKelvie. McKelvie is a candidate for a U.S. Senate seat vacated as a result of corruption; his rival is pastor Eric Snow, who heads a suburban megachurch and who has developed political ambition. One member of Snow's congregation is Gina D'Orazio, girlfriend of investigative reporter Garry Strider. When Gina's faith prompts her to move out of Strider's apartment, the cynical Strider takes Snow's megachurch as his next investigative target. The much published author writes with great confidence and plots like a screenwriter. The book's ending has a rushed feel, as if some major developments are dropped rather than resolved. On the whole, however, Strobel succeeds in his new direction; his nonfiction fans will certainly want to check this out. (May) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    This review was written for The Ambition.
    Since I became a Christian, I have not read any mystery and fictional novel for a long time. However, since I've read Lee's many 'case' books, I was intrigued by this one and bought it. Since I started reading the first page, I can't simply put in down, it's just a perfect fictional story for Christians who need an action-packed, witty book who takes us to the world of politics, the judiciary courts, and yes, the lives of the reporters in a very exciting and appreciative way. Can't wait for Lee's next book on mystery novel....can Gary Strider move to his next mission/investigative report again...would love to see him attend the Diamond Point Fellowship church and do his job, this time as someone who fully placed his faith on Jesus!!!! More please!!!

    Review from my blog on this book:

    Lee Strobel wrote The Ambition. I not a huge fan of lawyer and/or reporter based books. But this one did keep me interested. You have a reporter looking for dirt on a church pastor who is in the running for an appointment to a political seat. Though the reason the reporter is looking for dirt isn't because of the possible appointment. Then there is the dirty lawyer who is also a possible for the political appointment. Of course, paths start crossing, people start dying and the story gets interesting.

    I haven't read a novel in years so I was a bit reluctant to start one. Lee Strobel is an excellent writer and had my attention throughout the book. He was able to weave his own knowledge and background of people, the Chicago area and the church in an exciting way. I was arguing with characters, frustrated with their actions and relieved by the end, but still wanted more. I liked it so much I bought it for my dad, an avid reader, for Christmas.
