From bestselling author Gordon Korman, the thrilling conclusion to the adventure aboard the unluckiest ship of all.
The Titanic was supposed to be unsinkable - the largest passenger steamship in the world, one of the biggest and most luxurious ships ever to operate. For Paddy, Sophie, Juliana, and Alfie, the Titanic is full of mysteries - whether they're to be found in the opulent first-class cabins and promenade decks or the shadows in the underbelly of the ship. Secrets and plans are about to be revealed - only now disaster looms, and time is running out. The four of them need to find the truth, unmask the killer... and try not to go down with the ship.
Raves & reviews:
"[Korman provides] easily digestible bits of background on the Titanic, from technical details about its size and decor to the hierarchy of passengers and crew. He artfully weaves these facts into the story without sacrificing the elements of a compelling and exciting adventure tale—namely, a good dose of suspense and non-stop action... Though best known and loved for his humorous books, Korman has proven here, as he has with the other adventure series he's penned, that he is far from a one-trick pony." — Quill & Quire
"[Korman] knows how to spin a lively and engaging tale. Hanging it on an already fascinating, albeit tragic, slice of history means it wins on all levels: a thrilling account of a heart-stopping disaster, and a set of fictional characters seamlessly intertwined with real life." — The Montreal Gazette
"Korman manages to tell the story of the Titanic smoothly while also introducing other elements of the early twentieth century...Altogether an enjoyable read that makes this tragic story come alive with personal narratives." — Resource Links
"Highly Recommended" — Canadian Review of Materials
