A routine mob hit lights the fuse on an explosive collision of ambition and deception inside the Windy Citys corridors of power in this softcover edition of The Ambition. Drawing on his years as an investigative reporter for The Chicago Tribune, bestselling author Lee Strobel reveals an insiders tale of power, politics, and payoffs ripped from todays headlines. When a down-on-his-luck lawyer must bribe a federal judge to fix an upcoming mob trial, he secretly tapes the exchange to protect himself. After the dirty judge becomes a finalist for an open U.S. Senate seat, the incriminating tape isnt the only thing standing in his way. Pastor-turned-politician Eric Snow is determined to use his suburban megachurch as a launching pad for securing the Senate appointment. And Newspaper reporter Garry Strider threatens to uncover both candidates secrets in an investigation that may cost him his life. 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.
Lee Strobel was the award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune and is the best-selling author of The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, The Case for a Creator, and The Case for Grace. 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
Jim5 Stars Out Of 5A great novelJanuary 6, 2016JimQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.

Magic BusKalamazoo, MichiganAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5I loved this book- from a non-fiction readerNovember 21, 2013Magic BusKalamazoo, MichiganAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Having my adult children live in Chicago and my brother's family residing in Rolling Meadows, I purchased this book simply to read fiction based in this geographical area. I read this entire book in two sittings- I found it to be unpredictable and actually a thrill to read. I rarely read novels (maybe 2 a year), prefer biographies and non-fiction, but this book was a pleasant exception. Very well written with good characters placed in believable yet difficult situations. A+, will read any other novels Lee Strobel writes for sure.
branjamliljoAge: 35-44Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5This book was okay.July 15, 2013branjamliljoAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 2The entire reporter angle of the story felt like a re-telling of Lee's journey to faith. Then to have the reporter as an integral part of the story for 95% of the book but not be involved with the books outcome didn't make much sense to me. If I hadn't known anything about Lee Strobel before reading this book I might have given it a higher rating.
