Three days into the maiden voyage that would end in disaster, a passenger is found dead inside a locked cabin — the victim of a murder. Jacques Futrelle, author of the popular "Thinking Machine" mysteries, is asked to use his knowledge of criminology to conduct a quiet investigation. Adding to the delicate nature of the inquiry is a suspect list that reads like a Who's Who of high society — and every single one of them has a motive for murder. Accompanied by his intrepid wife, May, Futrelle pursues leads all over the palatial ship in what would prove to be his greatest — and final — mystery.
Once again, author Max Allan Collins creates an astonishing work of historical fiction in this vivid, enthralling account of the Titanic’s fateful passage.
