This is a mystery woven around an historical event, the sinking of the Titanic... I like how the little historical touches were woven in even though the main story was entirely fictional.
Passengers are dying on White Star Lines transatlantic ocean liners. Three mysterious suicides, on three different ships - all in first class cabins numbered13. And with the maiden voyage of their newest ship imminent, the cruise line can't afford a fourth. With the police stumped, Professor John Darnell, the world's first and only "paranormal detective" may be their last hope of debunking rumors of a murderous ghost. Soon, the famed skeptic has agreed to be the next occupant of cabin 13 - and he's sure its no spirit he's after.
FROM BACK COVER
Suprisingly enough, I really enjoyed this little gem. Im not super big on historical mysteries, but this story had a few things I really love. Mystery, Action, Romance, (((The TITANIC))) and Ghost hunting. This book was fun, light reading that was hard to put down, once it got going really good.
After being hired to debunk the jinx of Cabin 13, (apparently the result of 3 suicides) Professor John Darnell boards ship to find out whats causing the deaths. He meets and falls in love with Penny during his investigations.
Convinced these are no suicides but rather murders, John discovers the murderer mearly hours befor ethe ship sinks. Once board the Carpatian, John and his men hunt down the killer before he can strike again.
