At first I thought it dragged, there were so many characters to keep straight, but it quickly turned into fascinating! A TON of twists and turns and drama, and then some more! I quickly became invested in the characters, with the good, bad and ugly that was hurled toward them. I highly recommend this book!

Reading this book is sort of like watching a Road Runner cartoon. To say that you have to suspend disbelief is to understate the case. The caricatures are shallow, and the action often is so far over the hill that it's silly. But it's very entertaining. Mr. Coughlin can plot and he can write. He even seems to understand the difference between the verbs to lie and to lay, which, in this day and age is amazing. All in all, it's a fun read.

Just skim right through the first third of this book and pick out the highlights. Most of it could have been covered in one chapter. After that it becomes a story and a good one at that. I gave it four stars because of the unnecessary and long drawn out start 150 pages or so. After that it gets five stars to the end in my opinion. Enjoy.

What I found different about this read was the author's style of breaking the chapters into segments. That approach, with this ensemble cast of players let me, the reader,follow along with each of them and their individual story. The gain in that was it avoided long boring chapters with a confusion of what was going on in every body's life at the same time. Short segments also had the effect of keeping the overall plot tight and interesting. Character development went right along with that. As a result I was able to follow the "building" of each player's role in the telling of the story. I liked that.
I don't re tell story lines in my reviews. I look for good rising action, good falling action, anti climax and resolution. This book had all those ingredients along with a plot that allowed me to leave the book for a time and later return and remember what was going on when I left. That speaks of good plot development.
I will read more of this writer.

A really interesting and involved story line with many twists and turns. It took a bit of time to get into the story as there are so many characters - but once past chapter 2 it was almost impossible to put down, Better even than a John Grisham! There were some improbable s in the story like the Japanese businessman who is so rich that he can do what he wants and manipulates people and businesses There is a satisfying ending and I recommend this book to all those night owls. .

We all know much of life has more to do with who you know and what games you play than with getting what might be fair or right. A little cynical, perhaps, but the more you live life, the more this seems to be true. This book immerses itself in such a perspective and the people trying to reach or maintain power and wealth. Deliciously devious.
  • Alister
This book was an early one by this author, so his characters were a little shallow, but the plot, and the twists and turns, are excellent enough to make a reader gloss right over that and just enjoy the breakneck speed of the story! And, obviously, a lot of research was done on how law firms, investment banks, corporate raiders, and corporate executives act and think. Great book!
I'm in love with William Coughlin stories. It's a crying shame that Coughlin didn't live longer to write more. I particularly like his Charlie Parker stories. Twelve Apostles isn't a Charlie Parker story, but it's nonetheless a very entertaining and eye opening read. The thing that impresses me about Coughlin's novels is that the writing itself is so skillful. There are never any errors of grammar or style in his works. Reading his novels is a lesson in English writing. Beyond that, Twelve Apostles is dramatic, keeping the reader engrossed page after page after page. At the same time, the story, I believe, is enlightening in its revelations about how large law firms in big cities operate. Anyway, in my opinion, William Coughlin surpasses even Scott Turow as a writer of the legal thriller, and I'm about to buy another of his novels, one of the few that I know he's written and I haven't previously read.
