A routine gang killing lights a fuse that sets off an explosive chain of events fueled by ambition and deception in the corridors of power in Chicago. Lee Strobel, bestselling author, drawing on his years as an investigative reporter for the Chicago Tribune, weaves a gripping tale of power, politics and payoffs that seems almost as real as this morning's headlines. andnbsp;When a corrupt attorney is sent by the mob to bribe a judge, hoping to manipulate the outcome of a trial involving a certain gangster, he secretly records the conversation to protect himself. After the corrupt judge becomes a candidate for an open seat in the U.S. Senate, the telltale recording is not the only obstacle to his political success. Eric Snow, a pastor turned politician, has decided to use his suburban megachurch as a launching pad for his own bid for the Senate seat. And Garry Strider, a newspaper reporter, is threatening to reveal the secrets that both of the candidates are hiding in an invesigation that could cost him his life.andnbsp; Strobel uses these tense characters to weave an intricate and gripping thriller set in a gleaming suburban megachurch, a big-city newspaper that is struggling to survive, and the shadowy corridors of political intrigue. The unexpected climax is as unforgettable as the contract killing that punctuates the opening scene.
