The Midnight Watch
11,99 € *

As the Titanic and her passengers sank slowly into the Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg late in the evening of April 14, 1912, a nearby ship looked on. Second Officer Herbert Stone, in charge of the midnight watch on the SS Californian sitting idly a few miles north, saw the distress rockets that the Titanic fired. He alerted the captain, Stanley Lord, who was sleeping in the chartroom below, but Lord did not come to the bridge. Eight rockets were fired during the dark hours of the midnight watch, and eight rockets were ignored. The next morning, the Titanic was at the bottom of the sea and more than 1,500 people were dead. When they learned of the extent of the tragedy, Lord and Stone did everything they could to hide their role in the disaster, but pursued by newspapermen, lawyers, and political leaders in America and England, their terrible secret was eventually revealed. The Midnight Watch is a fictional telling of what may have occurred that night on the SS Californian, and the resulting desperation of Officer Stone and Captain Lord in the aftermath of their inaction. Told not only from the perspective of the SS Californian crew, but also through the eyes of a family of third-class passengers who perished in the disaster, the narrative is drawn together by Steadman, a tenacious Boston journalist who does not rest until the truth is found. David Dyer's The Midnight Watch is a powerful and dramatic debut novel--the result of many years of research in Liverpool, London, New York, and Boston, and informed by the author's own experiences as a ship's officer and a lawyer.

Desperate Hours

'A stupendous feat of reportage.' -Ron Powers, cowriter of Flags of Our Fathers Praise for Desperate Hours 'Goldstein's book is packed with detail. . . . This description of the Doria's sinking is especially moving.' -The New York Times 'A stupendous feat of reportage. Goldstein has virtually put us into lifeboats and sent us hurtling into the North Atlantic on the night of July 25, 1956.' -Ron Powers, cowriter, Flags of Our Fathers, and author of Dangerous Water and Tom and Huck Don't Live Here Anymore On an extraordinary summer's night in 1956, in a fog off Nantucket, the world-renowned ocean liner Andrea Doria collided with the Swedish liner Stockholm and, eleven hours later, tragically sank. But in that brief time the Doria became, after the Titanic, the most storied vessel of the century, as nearly 1,700 people were saved in an unforgettable rescue punctuated by countless acts of heroism amid confusion, terror, and even cowardice. In the tradition of Walter Lord's A Night To Remember, Desperate Hours re-creates the ill-fated voyage, from the passengers' parting waves at Genoa, to their last evening highball in the Doria's lavish lounge, to the unbelievable realization that catastrophe was imminent. Richard Goldstein draws from dozens of interviews, court documents, memoirs, and reports that relate never-before-told stories. He also presents technical findings that shed light on the blame for the disaster. The result is a definitive history of a fateful day, a legendary liner, and a deadly shipwreck now considered by scuba divers to be the Mount Everest of the deep.

Imagine sitting down for a drink, minding your own business when a total stranger approaches you. He tells you, you were responsible for the deaths of many thousands of people because you prevented the Titanic from sinking on her maiden voyage. Furthermore because of these deaths the future dictates that you may be responsible for millions more to come. You are also told that you have a chance to rectify that wrong by going back in time and correcting the mistake. A tale then ensues which will take you back in time, across the Atlantic and back again before finishing in the trenches of World War One. In doing so, and on the way, you shall meet up with all types of people, some famous, some infamous and others… well, just like you and me. All of this happened to Steven Grainger who came from a relatively humble but stable background. His life, up till then, had been routine and uneventful, however, all this changed one evening in remarkable style whilst calmly minding his own business and getting on with life as he knew it! His life was about to change in a dramatic fashion! Things happen in life and Steven's meeting with Jack Hope and his granddaughter, Olivia, triggered the start of an adventure that would take him from 1984 back to 1912 and finally onto 1917… and who knows after that? One thing is for sure, Steven would never be the same from that moment and on! With personal involvements and links to famous names such as Ismay, Andrews, Smith, Guggenheim, Astor, Earp and a whole host more. Romantically linked to several women along the way in both time zones gives Steven an insight into what true love can be like.
