Twelve Apostles

(1984)
A novel by

 
How far would you go to get the ultimate prize?

Anyone who is anyone in the lofty world of corporate law knows that the vacant senior partner's chair at the illustrious Manhattan firm of Nelson & Clark is the most fiercely coveted prize in the profession.

Nelson & Clark is so awesome in its influence, so elite in its international prestige that its senior partners are known irreverently as "The Twelve Apostles".

Beautiful Christina Giles wants the vacant Apostle's chair, and she has the legal prowess and political savvy the position demands.

But first she must outwit a ruthless, Eurasian tycoon with a maniacal desire to possess her.

He attempts to use her as a pawn in a dangerous corporate takeover which has the potential to destroy the greatest law firm in the world.

And even if she can escape from his clutches, Christina must then defeat - and maybe destroy - her lover, brilliant fellow lawyer Dan Spencer, in a hard-core power struggle only one of them can survive...

The Twelve Apostles is a gripping legal thriller that explores the corruption and betrayals that surround a rise to power.
