The book is huge and very complex and to be honest the photographs are actually poor quality. It is very hard to follow but it does not present any evidence that can be verified that Captain Smith or J P Morgan
were Jesuits, let alone planning to murder anyone. Father Brown was keen on photography and was given his tickets as a birthday present by his uncle the local Father Provincial and yes he was a Jesuit, but he was still doing studies. He was given two days as far as Ireland because he had to finish his studies, not because he was returning with the evidence that he murder plot was in place. The rest of the book reads even more like the infamous De Vince Code; also a load of rubbish, full of errors. The fact that several hundred Roman Catholics also went down with the ship also points to the plot being rubbish; as the church wanted to expand in the New World at the time; not kill off people going there to start a new life. J P Morgan did not turn up for the sailing as he was ill and extended his stay with friends; so did many others. Many people do not turn up for any sailing or trip even today.
There is no evidence that anyone was going to stop the Federal Reserve Bill in order to have a rival group; let alone that they were all on the Titanic and were killed by their rival. No evidence is presented in the book; just statements that are paranoid and are offensive as they are clearly against the Jesuit Order and a load of lies. The book is a disgrace and is in breach of the Incitement to Religious Hatred Act; so the author should be investigated.
Father Brown was not powerful enough or connected enough to be involved in such a plot and if there are desires to get rid of all of your rivals; surely there are more direct and certain ways than putting a ship into the way of the iceberg. All of the legal and expert evidence about the wreck of the Titanic and the reconstructions of how she sank point to her being hit by an iceberg or pack ice and the whole thing being an accident, caused by a series of human error and unusual weather conditions. Captain Smith was accident prone: not a hired killer and someone accident prone is not the sort of person to calculate to kill people through a deliberate accident. Even other conspiracy theories, to their credit, do not go as far as this book, and set it all in the light of a global conspiracy, for which there is no evidence at all, even in this book.
The book repeats most things several times and you get the feeling that the author is trying to justify an idea that is in his mind, rather than to put a real case forward for a murder plot. In addition, there is too much of a gamble in this situation as to who will live and who will die; it is all a matter of chance as well as situations. For example one couple that he is meant to have killed are the Strauss couple. Strauss was offered a seat in an early lifeboat, but did not accept. When he came to go in a later one, they put their maid in and he chose not to accept a place. His wife could have left but chose to stay with him. There is no reason why John Jacob Aster could not have bribed his way into a life boat: the fact that he did not get in is also to do with women and children first; as well as the fact that they came late to the boats. He hoped to get a later boat; and he could have got into the boat with Bruce Ismay; he had enough money to do so! Other people on the list also survived: so the whole idea of the plot fell apart. There, surely is a better way to kill a rival; especially at the start of the 20th century.
Finally, the book, as I said is very complex and takes some getting into. It is not a very clear book and it uses a lot of academic terms that are not from an academic source. The way things are explained are designed to attempt to stop the reader asking questions, but no real evidence is provided to prove what is obviously a conspiracy that has taken hold of the authors life. I have heard D L Park on some of the unregulated TV shows and he is abusive in his attack on the Jesuit order as well as those who do not agree with him. He is passionate about what he believes, but it is sadly clear that he lost objective focus some years ago.
