"[This] is an extremely well researched investigation into the mystery of what ships were in the vicinity of the stricken White Star Liner TITANIC the night she sank. I have a strong interest in this aspect of the TITANIC story - this book kept me up until 3 o'clock in the morning reading it! [This is] one of the Best TITANIC books I've read."
- Steve Hall, Co-author, "Titanic The Ship Magnificent" & "Titanic and Olympic: The Truth Behind The Conspiracy."
"There have been hundreds of books written on the Titanic but few have looked at the disaster from this angle. The author focuses on the mystery ship that was seen on the horizon and whose presence could have saved many more lives. The inquiry pointed the finger at Captain Lord of the Californian, but was he really to blame? The author goes into intricate detail to examine the facts from a scientific viewpoint to endeavour to establish who the mystery ship was, and his findings are very interesting ...the content is fascinating and extremely well researched and well written. Very highly recommended."
- Nigel Lawrence, Editor and Reviewer, "Shipping Today and Yesterday"
"For anyone interested in the Titanic, this book belongs on the shelf ... Though no Titanic explorer or researcher will agree with all of the conclusions, the evidence on which the conclusions are based has been very, very well researched."
- Dr.Charles Pellegrino, Titanic writer, researcher and wrecksite explorer
"This book is well-researched and written, and I doubt that much more can be said about it's subject. I recommend it to ardent Titanic fans."
- William A. Fox, reviewer, "Steamboat Bill", the journal of "The Steamship Historical Society of America."
"Thank you, Paul--you've made a genuine contribution to the Titanic story. You have every right to be proud of it ... I HIGHLY recommend [the book]"
- Daniel Allen Butler, author of "Unsinkable: the Full Story of RMS Titanic" and "The Other Side of the Night"
"Paul's work is indeed impressive"
- Mark Chirnside, author of "The 'Olympic' Class Ships: Olympic, Titanic and Britannic" and "RMS Olympic: Titanic's Sister"
