More About the Author
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".

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

About the Book:
In 1982 a young woman, dressed in Edwardian clothing, is found floating unconscious in the North Atlantic with a 1912 boarding pass to the HMS Titanic.
Miraculously the mysterious young woman awakes in a Manhattan hospital with no memory of who she is.
Edward Hoffman, respected, wealthy and a Titanic survivor himself, assists in exposing her as a fake, but the plan backfires and stirs up more details in the woman's memory. Is it a bizarre case of time-travel or an elaborate hoax?
Depth of Deception begins with a SOS coming from the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. Captain Sadler of the HMS McKinley, and crew, search the cold water and grow irate as they discover no ship in distress. Then the cry comes, "Man overboard. Man overboard. Off the starboard bow."
But in this case, it's woman overboard.
Floating in a deck chair and a Teddy Bear clenched in one hand and a copy of the novel, Futility, in the other, the women wears an Edwardian dress and a gold locket inscribed with, To Myra, Happy Anniversary! Archie, December 31st.
On further inspection of the book, a slip of paper is discovered marking a page. The book mark turns out to be a Cabin Passenger's Contract ticket, from the HMS Titanic. Miraculously, the woman, Myra, is alive.
In England, Callium Toughhill works as a freelance insurance investigator. He is surprised when, Percy Winthrope, hires him to look into a missing broach stolen from the murdered Agatha Gilcrest. The broach was said to have been on the Titanic and with the salvage rights recently granted, Lloyds of London wants to know if indeed the broach is there.Read more ›

This book was amazing! Titanic? I love it! Murder mystery? I love it! It's just the fact that the epilogue is very disappointing that I give it a 4/5, so just skip the epilogue.Published 21 months ago by an Amazon Customer
