Somewhat of a corny title. I was expecting more of the same under the cover, but found it to be an enjoyable read....you never know until you try I guess.

Ehhh...this book was not quite as good as I hoped it would be. I loved the premise (Ballard was not really the first one to find the Titanic, there was a first expedition in 1975 and the book is split in two between this first expedition and one in 1995) but the pacing of the book was off. It was too slow-moving when it should be faster and too brief where more detail would have been nice. What was interesting as well was that this book was first published about 7 years before the blockbuster film, _Titanic_. Several times while reading this book, I wondered if the screenwriters or director had read this as well. Aside from the terrible title, this book had a lot of potential so it is a real shame that its execution ruined it. The characters were not strong, or dynamic enough to make up for the pacing problem either. The point-of-view could have also been improved by sticking more to one central character. The book's originality though, did make it a worthwhile read.

This one is a techno-thriller with all the hallmarks of the best chillers, and a famous 'lady' taking center stage. As well or better written than Serling's previous, AIR FORCE ONE IS HAUNTED.

From back cover: In 1912, the loss of the 'unsinkable' Titanic stunned the world
More than eighty years ago, the grandest luxury liner ever built plunged into the inky darkness of the frigid Atlantic. In just a few hours, 1,500 ill-fated souls were swallowed up in its unforgiving jaws. Nothing could have possibly survived inside this vast watery grave...
Now, she holds another chilling surprise
Today, a band of brave men and women dare to venture where another salvage mission was mysteriously lost years before. The new expedition's goal: find out what happened to their predecessors - and recover the fortune in gold believed to be hidden in the great ship's hold. But what they find inside the legendary sunken tomb is unfathomable...
