4.0 out of 5 stars The Titanic Murders, 16 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Titanic Murders (Disaster Series) (Kindle Edition)
Max Allan Collins is a prolific author, whose best known series is that of Nathan HellerTrue Detective (Nathan Heller Novels), in which true crimes are interweaved in a fictional mystery. In this Disaster Series, the author also uses real life events and creates a mystery story based around them. The first in this series uses the iconic ship Titanic, with real life detective writer Jacques Futrelle The Collected Mysteries of Jacques Futrelle (Halcyon Classics) as his hero. Jacques (Jack) Futrelle was a passenger on Titanic and we begin the novel with Jack and his wife surprised at being given a first class cabin, rather than the second class one he has booked. While Futrelle wonders about his sudden promotion to first class, he is also intrigued by another passenger - John Bertram Crafton - who seems to be upsetting people before even setting foot on board ship. When there is a murder, Futrelle is asked to investigate and what follows is a charming view of Titanic on her maiden voyage. Anybody who was anybody was on board and Collins uses the incredible passenger list and opulence of the ship to great effect.

There are more books in this series: The Hindenburg Murders (Disaster Series), The Pearl Harbor Murders (Disaster Series), The Lusitania Murders (Disaster Series), The London Blitz Murders (Disaster Series) and The War of the Worlds Murder (Disaster Series). Obviously, they are all stand alone novels, but I think they are a wonderful idea and I am glad they are now on kindle.
