There’s a killer on the loose on the Titanic - and the only people who know are four kids. Within both the luxury of the cabins and the dark underbelly of the engine rooms, Paddy, Sophie, Juliana, and Alfie have found themselves tangled in a maze of mysteries, each one deadlier than the next. Even on a ship as big as the Titanic, the young passengers are finding there are very few places to hide. And when the ship hits an iceberg, the voyage becomes more dangerous than ever. 1.

Vor 100 Jahren erschütterte ein Schiffsunglück bislang unbekannten Ausmaßes die Welt. Über 1500 Menschen starben bei diesem Schiffsunglück, nur 711 konnten gerettet werden. Mit der ?Titanic? ging aber zugleich der Glaube an den unaufhaltsamen technischen Fortschritt und die Unzerstörbarkeit der menschlichen Spitzentechnologie unter. Denn die ?Titanic? stand für das Beste und Modernste, was die Schiffbautechnologie des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts zu leisten vermochte. Die erste umfassende Darstellung der Katastrophe in deutscher Sprache, die Schrift ?Der Untergang der Titanic?, erschien noch 1912 in Leipzig. Sie fußt auf Berichten von geretteten Augenzeugen und auf zeitgenössischen Presseberichten aus den ersten Stunden und Tagen unmittelbar nach der Katastrophe. Wenn auch die Beschreibung der Ursachen des Unglücks nicht dem heutigen Stand der wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen entspricht, atmet die Darstellung doch die Fassungslosigkeit über das Ausmaß der Katastrophe, die sich auch in Fehleinschätzungen und Legendenbildungen - zum Beispiel über die märchenhaften Reichtümer, die sich angeblich an Bord befanden - ausdrückt. So wird man nicht nur über die Katastrophe selbst, sondern auch von den zeitgenössischen Reaktionen auf den Schiffsuntergang und von den Diskussionen über Sicherheitsstandards ein authentisches Bild bekommen.
On Sunday 15 April 1912, the ´unsinkable´ RMS Titanic sinks on her maiden voyage to New York. But the truth is quickly suppressed. On board she carries three men scheming to create a new military alliance between the USA and Germany. Their goal - war with Great Britain and the destruction of the British Empire. Alex Tremayne and his American colleague Maria Weston are sent by British Intelligence to stop the spies, and with them the greatest war in history. On a voyage bristling with intrigue, Alex and Maria have one aim: to stop the conspirators from reaching America - at any cost... From Sunday Times bestseller James Becker, The Titanic Secret is perfect for fans of Dan Brown, Clive Cussler and James Rollins.
