Review

Historical fiction at its best. -- Antonia Senior * The Times * Passionate and gripping. * Financial Times * David Dyer turns the sparse record of why the Californian did not go to the aid of the sinking Titanic into a gripping novel of flawed people, missed chances, and suspense. * Charlotte Rogan, author of The Lifeboat * In The Midnight Watch, David Dyer makes the story of the sinking of the Titanic brand new-he even makes you wonder what will happen. This superb novel, the disaster we think we know, comes freshly alive through its unfamiliar point of view, and David Dyer's vivid eye for the right and telling detail. * Peter Nichols, bestselling author of The Rocks * A fascinating novel. David Dyer has captured all the drama and emotion of the Titanic disaster from an intriguing new perspective. Clever, gripping and utterly compelling. Historical fiction at its very best. * Hazel Gaynor, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Girl Who Came Home and A Memory of Violets * The Midnight Watch opens fresh portals on a monumental event with all the tools of strong historical fiction: deep research, methodical recreations, and an array of memorable perspectives. Dyer proves why sometimes it takes fiction to answer history's question of "How could this happen?" A compelling read and a journey through this moment in time. * Matthew Pearl, New York Times bestselling author of The Dante Club and The Last Bookaneer * David Dyer has achieved that very rare thing, an historical account of a major event involving impeccable research and detail, yet one that is a novel first and foremost. The Midnight Watch is a compelling read, insightful, compassionate and deeply moving from start to finish. -- Debra Adelaide, author of THE HOUSEHOLD GUIDE TO DYING [A] hugely impressive debut novel, a fascinating piece of historical fiction * RTE Guide *

Book Description

The Midnight Watch is at once a heart-stopping mystery and a deeply knowing novel - about the frailty of men, the strength of women, the capriciousness of fate and the price of loyalty.
