The Titanic is an often-discussed subject. Our memories are reverent, painful and even romantic. Sam McCarver was able to blend in just one possible story among thousands, which I am sure were occurring on ship. He puts his protagonist in the middle of the trouble and the reader gets a birds eye view of the crew and the Titanic before and after she goes down.
Professor John Darnell is hired to find out why passengers are dying in cabin 13 on three different ships belonging to the White Star Line. It seems when those who meet the professor hear he is a paranormal detective their first thought is abnormal happenings with ghost and demons. Actually the Professor is a detective who is out to debunk the myth of ghosts or demons being the killer. And he believes the one behind the cabin 13 deaths is very much alive.
I considered it an interesting reading. The mystery of whodunit was over a little too quick for me. Mr. McCarver is well versed in the history of the Titanic, as the reader will discover should he/she decide to read it.
