Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Alexander Galant was the historical researcher for the novel 'Dracula the Un-Dead', which was on the New York Times Best Sellers list in October 2009. Alexander also co-wrote the screenplay adaptation that was optioned briefly by Jan de Bont and adapted the novel into a dramatic stage reading for the Toronto book launch of Dracula the Un-Dead, which brought out the highest turnout for any event on the book tour. Alexander has also written and directed several short films which have won awards in festivals all over the world.

More About the Author

Alexander is a Canadian, residing in Toronto. His debut novel Depth of Deception (A Titanic Murder Mystery) was published in March 2012 to coincide with the centennial anniversary of Titanic. It has been awarded 'Finalist' for E-Book: Mystery/Thriller/Adventure (2012 International Book Awards) as well as Best New E-Book: Fiction category (USA Best Book Awards 2012). His short story thriller Remember Me is part of the Starship Goodwords anthology by Carrick Publishing, and his other short story, Same Crime Tomorrow is available exclusively through Amazon. Alexander is currently finishing up his next novel, LUTETIA (Darkness Beneath the City of Light) a historical thriller featuring a young Victor Hugo and his journey into the dark underworld of Paris and exposure to those he later referred to as 'Les Misérables'.

Because he has so much time on his hands (sarcasm) he decided to create a continuing on-line novelization Dracula sequel at www.undead-series.com.

Alexander has also written and directed several short films which have won awards in festivals around the world, including WorldFest Houston's Silver Remi (Suspense-Thriller) for The Missing Piece, a Bronze Remi (Horror/Fantasy) for his vampire short First Light and his comedic spoof Star Wars: Blasted Behavior won Best Foreign Sci-Fi Short at the New York International Film Festival and was a Finalist in the Atom/Lucas Film Star Wars Fan Film Competition

Alexander's love of historical details can also be seen in some of the stage productions he has directed, such as the silent film era of "Singin' in the Rain" (Act-Co Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement in Live Theatre), a 50-year span in "Love Letters" and the World War II Amsterdam annex for "The Diary of Anne Frank".

I'm not very good at these, but as I received my Kindle copy in order to read and review the book, here goes...

What can I say that hasn't already been said? I agree with almost all the previous reviews... except the one about the 'sound effects'. I thought it kept the book from being too melodramatic, gave the story a lighter note, kind of added to the gumshoe feel. The plot twists and surprises were what kept me up till 3AM, and in my chair half the next day unable to put it down, driving me to find out what happens next!

I haven't read a good mystery in a very long time, and although I hated to see it end where it did, this one grabbed me from the beginning!

It is definitely worth the $.99 the publisher is asking, and much, much more.

I found Depth of Deception very hard to put down from the dramatic opening of the book to the ending that tied up all the loose ends of the story. The end-of-chapter cliff hangers kept me reading late into the night.and while I was anxious to see how the book finished, I also hated for it to end! Yes, you will have to suspend disbelief in the concept of the story but put aside everything you believe about "here and now" and immerse yourself in the fantasy of time travel. I especially loved the references to the "amazing technology" that existed in 1982 and the characters' skepticism that things could get more advanced. What a great story with wonderful historical and geographic detail! I wholeheartedly recommend!

OK, I know what you're thinking - "Time travel + murder mystery + Titanic fic? Seriously?" Yeah, seriously, it works. It helps that the author has clearly done his research, built strong and believable characters and made his plot line hole-free. I was drawn in right from the first chapter, and was on the rollercoaster to the end. It takes a lot for me to have not guessed the ending by three-quarters through the book, but with this one I honestly didn't know how it would end.

If you like a book that's "off the beaten track" and unique, then this is the one for you. An author to watch.

Part time travel story, part mystery and all thriller! Gallant introduces characters and feeds us tidbits of the mystery in bite sized chunks and then jumps to other characters and other parts of the tale. The story moves along quickly and keeps us engaged in the multiple story lines. Gallant is very good at building suspense and putting his characters into jeopardy. I found it difficult to put down until I had finished it.

Alexander Galant's makes the past come alive in this spellbinding mystery.

It is 1982, and a woman is discovered floating in the ocean. She is still alive. What is equally amazing and puzzling is that she claims to be a survivor from the Titanic, and possesses items such as a first class ticket for the Titanic and a cumbersome dress from that period.

While the woman, who claims to be Myra Hoffman, defies the laws of science with her speedy physical recovery after being in the ice-cold Atlantic, it is much harder to reconcile her belief that she is a survivor of the Titanic that sank seventy plus years ago or the mother of famed psychologist, Edward Hoffman.

Meanwhile, in England, Callum Toughill is a private insurance investigator hired to determine if a brooch that was owned by an Agatha Gilcrest, who was murdered seventy plus years ago, was aboard the Titanic when it sank. As Toughill delves deeper into the case that destroyed his grandfather's reputation as a police officer and ultimately led to his death; Toughill unearths family secrets, lies and deception and finds a connection to the Hoffman case. But he must reveal the truth before the person murdering his witnesses kills Toughill.

Galant masterfully weaves together a multi-layered plot that doles out clues to keep the reader hooked and guessing. Each chapter moves from the story of one character to the next, from the setting in America to that in England, and ends with a cliffhanger, thereby creating a fast-paced read.

Galant's well-developed, palpable characters evolve through frugal narrative and dialogue; their motivational force behind their actions is effectively set up.

If you're a murder mystery fan, this one's for you! The story is fast paced, set in the 80's and links back to events that happened on and around The Titanic. Good twist in the end. Go on, just read it. And after that check out the website depthofdeception.com, pretty good too!

What a fabulous read! I was so impressed with the accuracy of the historical parts of this novel as well as the attention to detail with the language and characters. It was intriguing and suspenseful and there were times I had to pick my jaw up off the floor from some of the twists and turns in this book. The author established an interesting historical fiction with some amazingly quirky characters; he could have easily written three books with all the interesting characters that he created. I loved the author's use of F/X sounds as it helped me create a "film" in my mind as I read. I got totally sucked into this book that I had a hard time putting down which made for many late nights! I chose this book as my selection for my book club and the conversations it provoked were wildly entertaining. Even though we all read the same book, our views of the characters differed and we connected with different things in the book. It's a fun and suspenseful read and I highly recommend it!
