Overview

Published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic

A covert operation with catastrophic global consequences collides with fate in this ingeniously inventive novel of conspiracy, subterfuge, and murder unfurling against a factual, tragic, and heart-stopping moment in history.

THE TITANIC SECRET

April 1912: Shortly after midnight on Wilhelmstrasse in Berlin, mere yards from the British Embassy, an English spy is shot after a clandestine meeting with a German government official. He utters three cryptic words to a sentry, then dies. It’s an ambush as calculated and cold-blooded as the scheme it helps set in motion.

For Gunther Voss, a tyrannical German financier who has amassed a fortune in mining, it’s the biggest gamble he has ever undertaken: commit America to joining forces with Germany against Great Britain, destroy an empire, and secure for himself the invaluable South African mining concessions currently controlled by the British. It would make the formidable Voss, already a figure of both fear and admiration in America, one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world. Even as devious, self-seeking, and unthinkable as the plan is, with an alliance as strong as America and Germany, it’s more than possible—it’s inevitable.

It has fallen on the unique talents of Alex Tremayne of Britain’s Secret Service Bureau and beautiful Maria Weston, a pioneering, fearless, and experienced American agent currently working in Britain, to stop Voss dead in his tracks. Traveling undercover as man and wife, their mission is to neutralize Voss’s plan before he reaches the States. And they’ll be tracking Voss’s every move on the eventful transatlantic journey in unparalleled luxury, occupying a first class suite on board the Titanic, on her heralded maiden voyage from Southampton to the Port of New York.

But Tremayne and Weston are unprepared for the explosive plays of fate that await them, as well as their prey, over the next few nights of their doomed journey. For the ever-shifting dedication to duty and the choices between life and death will become more immediate, more intimate, more demanding, and far more treacherous than they could ever have imagined.

    James Bond on the open seas in 1912? Not quite as likable a character, but action packed. Very good reading.

    Interesting story, but....

    I thought the whole idea in this book was "interesting", and certainly took advantage of the real tragedy that happened that night. The story and plot were a bit predictable. The two main characters Tremayne and Maria came across a little inept. But, at times the plot moved right along and was full of excitment and surprises as well. Certainly a timely book given the anniversary ot the real event.

    First things first. This is NOT a book about the Titanic. It is

    First things first. This is NOT a book about the Titanic. It is an action thriller that happens to take place around the events of the doomed ship. If you are looking to read about the Titanic, this book will not suit your appetite. No spoilers included here.

    The book itself, while a good attempt to create a new story around the sinking of the Titanic, is not well written. The plot is predictable, with very little subtlety, and the characters are only mildly engaging. There is little cause for an emotional attachment to the story line (no build up or tension points), and the reader is spoon-fed every detail, multiple times. The worst part is that the scripted subterfuge and conspiracies are so far fetched in scope, that they are plainly not-believeable and underdeveloped. I completely understand changing some historical facts to suit the needs of plot development, but this not not a successful or clever adaptation of the true Titanic. It reads like a young-adult fiction novel, and there is little to keep you turning pages. Truth be told, there is more action packed into the jacket notes than the pages of the book itself.

    Aside from the plot , the book lacks much accuracy as a period piece (being set in 1912). The language and dialect of the characters is not correct for the time period, and though there are some mild techno-thriller elements, much of the period-related background is glossed over or minimal at most. I could also be very, very wrong, but I do not believe the Titanic carried "do not disturb" signs... Also, the cover art is inaccurate; the Titanic did not have a raked/rounded bow as is pictured (it had a completely razor pointed prow, which included a forward facing hawser), the superstructure is much too forward (and was not completely enclosed), and the anchor hawseholes were much smaller, and oval in shape (and actually had anchors in them). But thats just being super nit-picky...

    Just a final though, it seems such poor taste to select such a widely studied historical disaster as the sinking of the Titanic and simply ignore almost everything about the event other than the major staples. There were so many opportunities within this book to include small tidbits of historical information and facts about the ship and its passengers/crew (even small ones), yet the author chose to leave most everything out. Granted we are delivered a lot of info approaching the culmination of the disaster, what was shared was listed as point of fact or thrown in as a side note, rather than written into the storyline. The pessimistic view of the Titanic's sinking that carries throughout the text (and into the Authors notes) is also a little disparaging.

    This book is simply not what was expected, especially having the hype of being released to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the liner's sinking. For me, it was not worth the read.

    For some great historical science fiction or action adventure thrillers that highly succeed in these categories, try Clive Cussler, Ted Bell, Dan Brown, Brad Meltzer, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.
