Unfortunately, I waited too long after reading the first in this series. That, combined with the broken timeline, made this book often confusing. (I even tried starting over, after 100 pages, making notations of names and connections. It was still confusing.) This book needs a scorecard and a timeline. That said, "The Twelve" is still interesting and Cronin can paint pictures with his prose (see some quotes, below).
