In the decades following the sinking despite official inquiries and the discovery of the wreck itself, key questions––why did the double-bottomed Titanic built above and beyond exacting specifications sink in less than three hours? Was the iceberg alone responsible or did other factors contribute to the collision’s deadly toll? With the same methodology used by forensic scientists in crime scene investigations, the authors who are researchers applied new tools to the century-old mystery and they build a compelling new scenario.
Grippingly written, the book is illustrated with modern scientific evidence and fascinating period photographs. It includes little known Titanic facts and lore, colorful portraits of the ship’s designers and builders, eyewitness crew accounts and a dramatic timeline of the ship’s last hours. In an age when forensics can catch killers, this book does what no other does and no other has done before––fingers the culprit in one of the greatest tragedies ever. 248 pages. Illustrated with photos and diagrams. Hardcover.
