What was it the books said about turning into a skid? My hands scrambled on the spinning spokes and the car cartwheeled to a long sliding stop.

What was it the books said about turning into a skid? My hands scrambled on the spinning spokes and the car cartwheeled to a long sliding stop. Hands clenched on the wheel, I peered stupidly through the windshield. The hood ornament pointed at rolling gray clouds. I glanced out the side windows and was reassured to find myself still on solid ground. With the care of a jeweler cutting a diamond, I shifted into reverse and gave it some gas. The rear tires chirped, then gained confidence, and hauled the Chevy back to even footing on the highway

Beneath the decks, in the cargo hold, is a crate marked Ryker Industries. November 30, 1941: In Honolulu, the apparently accidental death of tourist Albert Klein and the brutal murder of his wife confound the promising career of a rookie cop. Norman Hall will never be able to forget the grisly sight of the dismembered body of Martha Klein. Decades later, a best-selling author, he is still haunted.

Naked except for sunglasses, William Ryker was a burned red lobster. Surrounded by olive green sheets, his gnarled body looked like a strip of bacon floating in a bowl of pea soup.

Jan dropped the film in a Geneva mailbox on January thirtieth to send it to Kodak’s Paris lab. On February third the finished roll arrived, amid a pile of bills, at our post office box in Fourqueux. All in all, a three-day wait. Those three days were among the most unpleasant in my life. Two of them were spent sneaking inconspicuously out of Switzerland. Jan did most of the work, I’m afraid

Eva Ryker felt the gut-deep purr of the ship slow, then die. We’re stopping. In B-76 Eva Ryker struggled uselessly against Lisa’s arm as Jason’s blue eyes examined her coolly. His lips smiled in reflex action. She sat up and peered out at the blackness beyond the porthole. Lisa, why are we stopping? Lisa took her by the hand. I’m sure it’s nothing. The package, Eva. You know something. Tell me. No! Don’t be clever, Eva.

I read this book when it first came out in paperback in 1978, seven years before Ballard located the Titanic. I enjoyed it immensely, not because it involved the Titanic, but because it was a good thriller. How is the sinking of the "unsinkable" liner in 1912 related to a gruesome murder in Hawaii 29 years later? The narrator and primary character of the novel is Norman Hall, a writer who was a young patrolman with the Honolulu PD when the murder took place in 1941. He discovered the body and resigned from the force shortly thereafter. Now he has been offered a considerable sum to write about a very wealthy man's attempt to locate and raise the Titanic, the ship on which his wife died while his daughter was rescued. Hall is cynical, bitter, and inclined to smart comments and not at all convinced that everything is as he has been told.

Irwin Allen bought the rights to the book and made a bad TV movie that bears little resemblance to the book in 1980. Decent cast, but, still, a bad movie.

I thought I still had that original paperback but when I couldn't find it anywhere on my shelves or in the boxes yet to be unpacked after multiple moves and several years in storage, I was convinced it was lost forever. Then I found it used at Amazon, ordered it, read it, and enjoyed it as much as I did the first time. It's good to have an old favorite back. I might just read it again in another ten years or so.

Wonderfully original book. I first found it in an used book store years ago, but somehow it got lost & I requested that it be available on Kindle. Now that it is, (thanks Amazon!) I bought it & eagerly read it again with as much enjoyment as the first time. The book has a masterful plot that will keep you in bewilderment at first & then in awe when you see how the pieces of the puzzle fit together. It finishes off with an even more astounding ending that has you rooting for the good guys with every page turn. An exciting mystery set partially on the infamous Titanic (which adds an extra dash of melancholy & shows how fate changes everyone's life & plans), you'll treasure your time reading this book as it takes you from decade to decade & suspenseful moment to suspenseful moment.

I read this book a long time ago and haven't read it in years. I love how the story arcs from tragedy to another. It involves all of the main characters throughout the years and what happens to them. But the most vivid of all is Eva. How she suppresses her memory of what happened on that fateful night of the Titanic sinking. How her father brings those memories back when he wants to brings things up from the sunken ocean liner.

Donald wrote an excellent story and I wish that the movie had done justice to the story line. Maybe they can somehow remake the movie. But from the minute you start reading this story, it's very hard to put down. Hold on because Eva gives you a wild ride from being a little girl to the grown woman that she is now.

I read this book for the first time many many years ago and have kept the book with me ever since, reading it again every couple of years. My copy is old (like me) and starting to look tatty (also like me), so when I found it at Amazon, I downloaded immediately. Everyone should read this book at least once in their lives. It has a great story, heartache, tension, bloody murders, action and suspense - in fact, if it was covered in chocolate, I'd marry it.

I read this book many years ago and tripped across it again recently on Amazon for purchase. It is a really good story that will really make you think. A really excellent story with a surprise ending; I can't recommend this book highly enough. It is a book you can dive right into and don't have to re-read anything; it is a difficult book to put down. Plan on reading start to finish in one sitting; you won't be able to put it down! *grin*

I just finished this book yesterday and thought it was published in 2015 and wondered why there was a omission of Dr. Ballard's discovery. I now look back on my reading of this novel and think 1978, we didn't know everything then. That makes this book brilliant! I enjoyed the intrigue and drama. I honestly had no idea where it was going for a long time, but I liked that. What bothered me was the Titanic discovery but I didn't know the facts given to Mr. Stanwood. I now think he did a wonderful job with that and think a Titanic lover as well as a thriller reader would like this book.
I read this novel when it was first published, and I remember staying up very late for two or three nights, just because I couldn't put the book down. The story is about a murder that took place on the Titanic before it went down. I don't want to give away anything that might spoil the plot for you, so I'll just say that the story is really told in the present day. (When the book came out, the present day was the 1970s.) There is a connection between that murder and the present day. This is as much a thriller as it is a mystery. Recommended!
