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.
The book has two main plots that come together beautifully at the end. In America, we follow the mystery of Myra, who appears to have traveled in time to 1982 from the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. I loved Myra! She's a strong, `proper' lady, devoted to her family. When she finds her son, who is now a 70 year old man, I felt their grief when they realized they missed a lifetime together. I'm not big with time-travel stories, but I absolutely loved this one.
In England, Callum is hired to follow the trail of an insurance claim for a brooch that was believed to have gone down with the Titanic. As his investigation progresses, he finds himself looking into a cold-case murder case from 1909, which puts the lives of his current investigation in danger. There's so much going on with this part of the story, I was a bit overwhelmed trying to keep track of everyone and how they were related to each other, but I just made notes in my `handy-dandy' notepad to reference back to. (I do that a lot :)
In 1982, technology and science was just starting to change. I loved reading about some of the `new' gadgets such as the car phone and thermal paper fax machines. My parents had one of those car phones, it was about the size of a shoe box, and reading about those things made me laugh at the memories. The author also has a web site set up with some great pictures of items mentioned in the book. But you have to read the book to know the password in order to access them.
This is by far the best mystery book I've read this year. The story is fast-paced with lots of action going on. You won't get bored with this one, and for 99 cents, it's well worth it.
Glad I got the book, read the story and ti would make a great movie in my opinion.
If you like a book that's "off the beaten track" and unique, then this is the one for you. An author to watch.

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 on May 18, 2014 by an Amazon Customer
