This historical generational horror/suspense/science fiction audiobook defies genre classification as it has intrigue and terror.

Smith to scuttle his own ship - RMS Titanic. What dark secret prompts such an action on the part of a veteran, retiring captain on a ship´s maiden voyage? What prompts men 100 years later to pillage the wreck of the Titanic? What secret lies buried within the lost ship - a secret that could destroy all life as we know it?

Side by side On the fateful night of the Titanic disaster, heiress Loretta Linden made sure her friends and fellow passengers got to the lifeboats before she even thought of herself. Her soft heart is legendary - and her desire to help others is her great passion. She will not rest until her little band is safely reunited in her native San Francisco - where she meets the dashing Captain Quarles. Hand in hand Malachai Quarles has sailed the seven seas - and he´s had many a sweetheart - but he´s never met a woman like Loretta. She´s beautiful, funny, and generous to a fault, a collector of assorted lost causes, underdogs, and stray cats - and his heart. The freewheeling captain is madly in love with her - but he won´t be tamed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Baarns.

April 15, 2012, marked 100 years since the Titanic sank. Since that fateful night, stories about the sinking have become legendary - how the band played to the end, how lifeboats were lowered half-empty - but amongst the films, novels and academic arguments, only those who were there can separate truth from fiction. After the sinking, inquiries into the loss of 1,517 lives (out of 2,223 aboard) were held in both the UK and US. The proceedings produced 1,000 pages of transcripts. Some of the testimonies were inevitably less than impartial, but as a whole the transcripts represent the most thorough and complete account of the sinking, told in the voices of those who were there. For the first time these transcripts have been specially edited and arranged chronologically, so that they tell the story of the Titanic´s sinking as a narrative, rather than a list of questions and answers in a courtroom. The witnesses are transformed into characters in a much bigger story, and the events are described from different perspectives of people in every part of the ship, from a stoker in the boiler room escaping his section before the water tight doors sealed behind him, to first class passengers trying to buy their way onto lifeboats. Capturing the disbelief, the chaos and the terror of the disaster, this unique book brings to life the tragedy through the voices of those who survived it. 1. Language: English.

Just before midnight on April 14, 1912, the RMS Titanic, the largest ship in the world, hit an iceberg, setting in motion a chain of events that would ultimately make it history´s most famous, and notorious, ship. The Titanic was neither the first nor last big ship to sink, so it´s clear that much of its appeal stems from the nature of ship itself. Indeed, the Titanic stands out not just for its end but for its beginning, specifically the fact that it was the most luxurious passenger ship ever built at the time. In addition to the time it took to come up with the design, the giant ship took a full three years to build, and no effort or cost was spared to outfit the Titanic in the most lavish ways. Given that the Titanic was over 100 feet tall, nearly 900 feet long, and over 90 feet wide, it´s obvious that those who built her and provided all of its famous amenities had plenty of work to do. The massive ship was carrying thousands of passengers and crew members, each with their own experiences on board, and the various amenities offered among the different classes of passengers ensured that life on some decks of the ship was quite different than life on others. Much has been made through the years about the failures of those designing the Titanic to take proper safety precautions, and how these failings led to the disaster and huge loss of life. In fact, the number of lives lost was so great that it can be hard to believe that the death toll might have been higher. Nonetheless, it´s true that many more would have died without the courageous efforts of those on the ships who responded to the Titanic´s distress calls and sailed through the same dangerous conditions that brought down the ´´unsinkable´´ ship itself. Investigating the Sinking of the Titanic chronicles the immediate aftermath of the tragedy and the investigations and changes that followed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Gagnepain.

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.

A year after the sinking of the Titanic, four teens try to cope with memories of that horrific night.... It’s April 1913, and survivors of the RMS Titanic have gathered to remember those who didn’t make it onto the lifeboats. Debutante Elizabeth Farr, who had been in first class, lost her father. Steerage passenger Katie Hanrahan nearly lost her life. Still, neither of them wants to be at the remembrance service. All they really want to do is forget. A year after that awful night, Elizabeth still feels the chill of the frigid arctic air, and Katie can’t sleep because of nightmares of being trapped belowdecks, waiting for death. They want it to go away, but Titanic will never leave them. On their voyage one year ago, Elizabeth met a struggling artist named Max, and Katie fell for a boy from her hometown whose brother perished in the disaster. As the four of them strive to make new lives in New York, they struggle to move beyond the night that changed them all forever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julia Whelan.
