I have always been interested in how this man wrote a book that foretold the future because there are too many similarities with the Titanic horrible's sinking of the unsinkable ship and the book The Titan. I don't believe in fortune tellers and crystal balls but I do believe that some folks do have a gift, like a mother's instinct but to be able to so accurately the future 16 years later that's pretty far fetched.
Why was there no publicity about this book when the Titanic was thought of building and sailing? Was this book even brought up?
The media would have had a field day once the book was becoming real. With how long the Titanic was, the amount of survivors were almost the same number. These crossings, however, are fraught with navigational hazards, the greatest of which is ice. Unlike the ship, one member of her crew is not of the highest standard. At least, not anymore.
John Rowland is a broken man who drinks to forget his past. However, when the Titan crashes into an iceberg during her attempt to break a speed record, he is forced to confront his past. Can he overcome his enemies and escape as the ship begins to sink? And can he make his way back to civilization and find self-respect once more?
Adventure and soul-searching await Rowland, with a surprise ending.
