Bill Blower's first novel is a chilling story of revenge and sabotage against the builders of the Titanic that goes horribly wrong, resulting in the terrible tragedy that claimed the lives of 1500 innocent...
2:20 A.M. April 15, 1912. 1500 people perished in an iconic nightmare that would perplex the world for generations. How was it that the unsinkable Titanic, carrying 1320 passengers and a crew of 892, sank in freezing waters after hitting an iceberg three hours earlier - especially when the technology of Titanic was such that she could have easily avoided the impact with the iceberg? Was this a bizarre accident or the unfolding of a sinister plot to undermine the success of White Star Lines' feature attraction? For over one hundred years, the secret lay hidden in Titanic's bowels at the bottom of the North Atlantic. Only now does a story of conspiracy and revenge surface. It was an age of ruthless, wealthy barons who ran roughshod over anyone or anything that stood in their way - including the most brilliant inventor of the era - Nikola Tesla. Perhaps the world will finally know what may have happened that fateful night that held Titanic hostage on her maiden voyage.

For the next several blogs, I’m going to drift away from the Titanic a bit and talk about a more modern sea going phenomenon, cruise ships. Titanic was an ocean liner. One of a class of ships meant to get passengers and packages across a large body of water quickly. Cruise ships certainly move us […]
Andrews ran from his room. He took the stairs two at a time, rushed along the portside railing, and burst into the bridge control room to find the helmsman, Robert Hitchens, spinning the wheel from side to side with no effect on the ship.
