One of the most celebrated American mystery writers of his time, he was also one of the over 1,500 people who didn't survive the ship's disastrous sinking. But what if Futrelle's crimesolving talents were engaged before it went down? Inspired by actual people, events, and historical details, this unique mystery is a masterpiece of fact, fiction, and foul play.
