The Titanic Secret by Jack Steel
April 16, 2012 - Amy Phelps
An historical mystery combines the Titanic disaster and spies in Jack Steel's "The Titanic Secret."
Its 1912, and a British spy is shot after meeting with a German official. British officials have uncovered a devious plot by German fiancier Gunther Voss to get America to join forces with them against the British empire. And if it makes Voss richer by securing a now-British controlled South Africian mine, so be it.
Alex Tremayne, British Secret Service, and Maria Weston, an American agent are called to travel aboard Titanic and make sure Voss and his associates meet with an "accident" during the travels.
But little do they know, other plans are being made in case Treymayne and Weston fail, and Voss has plenty of schemes that could mean their end as well. As Titanic sails amongst iceburgs, Alex and Maria's plans may change - and their lives may be forfeit as well.
This is a cool spy novel with double crosses and plenty of action, with a great historic setting. While some things are changed around about the tragedy for the fiction aspect (it may not have been the iceburg that sank the Titanic) it's a great thriller for both action fans and history fans alike.
"The Titanic Secret" is published by Gallery Books. It is $25 and 438 pages long.
