First in a great Max Allan Collins series

Max Allan Collins created a superb series of historic mysteries that tie In with famous mystery writers. Though many know the story of the Titanic, few know they a famous American mystery writer Jacques Fuetrelle, author of the “Thinking Machine” mysteries, was aboard. Collins takes this fact, along with onboard millionaires John J Astor, Ben Guggenheim and others and weaves an intricate and fascinating story of blackmail and murder. He does so with a light touch, keeping the story interesting, dramatic and even hopeful. It is a classic tale well suited to audio or film and wonderfully described.
