Publisher's Description

A routine mob hit lights the fuse on an explosive collision of ambition and deception inside the Windy City’s 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 insider’s tale of power, politics, and payoffs ripped from today’s 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 isn’t 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.

    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.
