First, she takes listeners back to 1912 and the maiden voyage. Forbidden Russian lovers - Stephan Ivanovich, a peasant farmer, and Darya Nikita, an aristocrat with a dowry of diamonds - board the Titanic so they can elope and enjoy a life together in America. The plot fast-forwards to a present-day quest and introduces illegal salvage entrepreneurs posing as documentary filmmakers. Captain Jonathan Martin and his hand-picked crew go to the deep-sea waters of Newfoundland, Canada, to try to recover the diamonds for Darya´s descendants, who hired them. Nick and Franco, the divers, conflict with Lisa, the ship´s medic, who´s in charge of training them to use their new technology. They all have their doubts about the presence of James Harper, a wanted criminal, on this ship. In the past, Darya is trying to escape her aristocratic family and an arranged marriage. In the present, using experimental equipment, when divers Nick and Franco see ghosts on the wreck, an unexpected murder mystery unfurls startling secrets of the voyage before the Titanic hit the iceberg. An ancient curse puts an additional paranormal spin on the dark secrets held by the ghosts of the Titanic. And, once awakened, the ghosts aren´t content to stay at the bottom of the ocean.

What could possibly connect the famous sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and a WWII German U-boat loaded with a mysterious cargo? In this tribute to the 100th anniversary of the famous disaster, Chris Angus takes the reader on an adventure that includes shipwreck survivors, stolen treasures, a race across the Arctic and a century-old journal that holds the key to the connection and solving the mystery. Laura Engalls is an anthropologist working with the Inuit in Greenland when she’s shown the diary of sixteen year old Titanic survivor Samuel Meade – a diary whose story holds clues to the whereabouts of missing Titanic treasure. She enlists the help of reporter and Titanic fanatic Matt Mosher, as well as native Greenlander Ulrik, to uncover the truth. Together they begin an adventure that takes them across the inhospitable ice fields of Greenland. However, they soon discover they are not the only ones trying to unravel the mystery. What ensues is a tale of intrigue, international thievery and murder that ranges across 100 years, from the sinking of the famous ship and a plot hatched by Hitler himself to the machinations of present-day neo-Nazis and a modern-day treasure hunt for the truth. 1.

1912: Locked in an eerily quiet dining room on the Titanic, a mysterious man tells a young girl his life story as the ship begins to sink. It all starts in Whitechapel, London in 1888.... In the small hours of the night in a darkened Whitechapel alley, young Mary Kelly stumbles upon a seriously injured man almost unconscious in the gutter. Two days later, an American gentleman wakes in a hospital bed with no memory of who he is or how he got there.… Back in 1912, as the Titanic begins its final shuddering descent, the truth behind a series of murders that have hung like a dark fog over London for more than two decades is about to be revealed.... 1.
