THE AMBITION by LEE STROBEL
Here is the description of The Ambition by the publisher:
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
What are my thoughts? This book is AMAZING! It is fast paced and keeps you riveted until the last page. It is one of those legal thrillers that brings you in close to see the heart of deception. You combine danger, deceit and death and you have yourself one roller coaster ride. I read this book deep into the night. The characters blew me away. They were deep and their lives were filled with ambition. Ambition that sets them on a road to pride and danger. A life they were not looking for, but found none the less. What I love is the fact that we see humility come. We see the characters face the very thing that brought them to be where they were. They get mixed up in such deceit they soon lose who they are. But God has a way of bringing them back and bringing the truth to light. You are going to enjoy this book. Hold on to your seat, cause it's a crazy ride!
This book was a gift from Zondervan for it's review.
