about

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.
