Though this book was a little dry and the character development was a little lacking, I really enjoyed it. I've always been fascinated with the Titanic and have eagerly devoured anything to do with the ship and its tragic end. However, I haven't heard much about the hearings held after the sinking before. I feel as if Ive learned a little more about the ship through this novel, and about the downfall of the Duff Gordans. I'm looking forward to more from this author.
