Kurzbeschreibung

When a passenger is found dead inside a locked cabin aboard the opulent Titanic, it’s a crime worthy of “the Thinking Machine,” the popular fictional investigator who solves mysteries using formidable logic. So who better to crack this real-life case than author Jacques Futrelle, the man behind America’s favorite detective?

On board for a romantic getaway with his wife, Futrelle agrees to conduct a stealth inquiry. The list of suspects on the Titanic’s first-class deck is long and includes the brightest lights from high society, each with no shortage of dark secrets. As the mammoth ship speeds across the Atlantic toward its doom, Futrelle races to uncover which passenger has a secret worth killing for—before the murderer strikes again.

Set in the days leading up to the luxury liner’s tragic sinking, this historical thriller is a dazzling blend of fact and fiction that will enthrall readers with page-turning revelations and Titanic lore.

Synopsis

Celebrated American mystery writer Jacques Futrelle, a passenger aboard the Titanic, puts his crime-solving abilities to the test as he investigates two strange deaths aboard the ill-fated ocean liner.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Detail-dropping hurts a decent mystery 4. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
At first it seems promising- a Titanic novel with real characters, and it's not a romance either. These are both very, very rare things in this field, so despite the title I awaited The Titanic Murders with eagerness. Once I actually read it, though, I found myself disappointed. It is researched carefully, with a great attention to detail, but the use of said details is probably its greatest fault. Collins drops details the way another person would drop names- he can't seem to resist the urge to toss every possible character, incident and reference from the Titanic into his story, and they aren't that well-integrated either. The effect, rather than one of refreshing reality, ends up being more irritating than anything else. Another issue was that, given Collins' care in having every character be a real person, he did not seem to bother to learn much about the real personalities of some. His vastly out-of-character version of J. Bruce Ismay is not only absolutely nothing like the man, it's not even much like the stereotypes of him from later Titanic movies and literature. He seems to have made this beyond-arrogant, aggressive and tricky-minded person of which he writes up out of whole cloth. At least he got the physical description perfectly (the 6'4" Ismay has been turned into a short man in Titanic novels before) as well as a few aspects and habits (the nervous smile) that were fact-based. Most of the rest of the cast (except Futrelle himself, about whom I don't know enough to judge) also struck me as slightly stereotyped. I do have to commend Collins on his writing of the mystery story itself and on the characterization of his star. His research, though I didn't like the way it was applied, was stunning and made this possibly the most factual fictional Titanic. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen New Twist On An Old Tale! 28. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I have read very little in the way of mysteries. However as a shipwreck buff in general and more specifically a Titanic buff, I was very interested int his book. Mr. Collins has done a superb job of capturing the nuances of the period and the ship itself. He made good use of his resource materials.I also enjoyed the prologue and the epilogue as a great way to neatly tie the whole book together.An imminently pleasurable read. Jacques Futrelle would be proud!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A titanic historical mystery 6. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
The anonymous caller clearly states that he has recently been inside the Titanic. However, it was the man's insistence that he saw two murdered corpses inside the deep freezer of the ship that had to happen before the Titanic grazed that fatal iceberg. Though doubting the account, Max, the author of historical mysteries, starts thinking about the possibilities. Especially intriguing is that the great mystery writer, Jacques "The Thinking Machine" Futrelle was a passenger. Max follows up his pondering by talking with Virginia Futrelle Raymond, the ninety-three years old daughter of Jacques.
Virginia corroborates the phone call by saying her mother, a survivor of the tragedy, swore two murders occurred and that her father, though originally only a passenger, was investigating them. Virginia's story fits comfortably with what historians agree as the facts. So begins the tale of two murders on board the Titanic before destiny ended its run.
Talk about Titanic nerve and guts. Only a historical mystery writer with the talent of Max Allan Collins would dare write a who-done-it, starring real persona (except perhaps Cameron and that couple) and events from the real Titanic. THE TITANIC MURDERS brilliantly works. The story line unfolds into a wonderful mystery being investigated by Mr. Futrelle, a superstar mystery writer of the period, who was one of many to die during the tragedy. The characters seem so genuine, especially their awe over the elegant surroundings. Historical detail makes this novel a winner as it's the research that makes the period come alive. The author of the renowned Heller series and the Ms. Tree comic book, Mr. Collins may have written his best novel to date.

4.0 von 5 Sternen GENERALLY A GOOD, QUICK READ 17. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I was immediatley drawn into the premise of this book simply because I have been a Titanic buff for over 15 years, and I was happy to discover it was not a love/class story. The author deftly moves us through richly detailed staterooms, meals, and accurate charcters down to the stewards. The attempt to make one feel as if they are on the ship and in the company of the cream of Edwardian society, while also weaving a tale of mystery and murder, is well achieved. I also love the idea of planting the seed of possible reality into the plot. The only drawback I could find was while I generally enjoyed the authenticity of the primary characters being real people, I was a bit put off by the fact that two most likely innocent men have been villianized in a work of fiction. This however detracts nothing from the book itself. Very convincing, and a great summer read. I am glad to have stumbled upon it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Collins takes on Christie in a fight to the death! 23. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Hard-boiled fans know that when it comes to historical mysteries, Max Allan Collins' Nathan Heller novels are second to none. Now mystery fans who prefer the less-rugged mysteries of Agatha Christie and the like can sample Collins' phenomenal talent as well. By setting the story on the doomed ship, and using a cast comprised entirely of actual historical figures, Collins shows his flair for research and detail, while telling a gripping mystery that will have the reader turning pages breathlessly. Another Collins classic.
