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!

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!

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 love reading about the Titanic, and when I saw this book, I had to have it. This book was awesome!! It grabbed me from the very beginning and I didn't want it to end.

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.

Once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. Forget housework on Tuesday morning, I had to finish it. But the interpretation of the ending is totally left up to you and I interpret it in a good way.

Glad I got the book, read the story and ti would make a great movie in my opinion.

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!

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.
