The mystery aspect of the book was terrific. The characters were interesting, and even though I would NOT pick up a book about investment companies (bleh!), the storyline/mystery/plot/business aspect was very captivating.

It was so wordy and so much info....which isn ...more
Will the past destroy Kelsey's future?
This was a book that was well written and expertly intertwined the past and the present, with a century old mystery. This wasn't quite what I expected, and there was very little in the book that had to actually do with the Titanic.
I had a really hard time reading this book, it had nothing to do with the way it was written or anything like that, but I found most of the book had to do with the world of Wall Street, with stocks and bonds, something t ...more
