Oct 11, Vicky-Leigh Sayer rated it really liked it. This novel was much more gripping than I expected it to be. I bought it because I love a good book about the Titanic, fictional or not, it's one of those subjects that I find fascinating. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, from the 'blurb', but be assured if it's a fast paced thriller that you're after, then this definitely falls in to the category.

Commander Jerry Derham is sent to find out, and he enlists Kate and Lou renowned marine archaeologists to help him. As the back cover blurb suggests, Kate and Lou were once a couple, it's clear throughout the novel that they both have feelings for each other, but these are largely ignored, which I liked, I didn't want it to turn into a sappy love story.
And for summer days
As they set out to uncover the mystery, we are taken back to , the year of the Titanic disaster, through flashbacks we are woven even deeper into the mystery. But it doesn't become confusing, only more intriguing. I haven't read anything by Tom West or Michael White before Tom West is a pseudonym but he's an author now on my radar, and I look forward to reading the next Tom West in I bought this book at an airport in Malta, I think , solely due to the blurb and the word Titanic in the title.
And yesterday, after reading I-don't-know-how-many-romances in a row, I decided to give this one a go, because a change of "scenery" was needed. When I think thriller, I think suspense, edge-of-your-seat action, nail-biting narration, a page-turner. This one was far from any of I bought this book at an airport in Malta, I think , solely due to the blurb and the word Titanic in the title.
This one was far from any of it, unfortunately. Or maybe it's just me.

The narration was slow, the story dragged, when there were passages describing the look of the wreck under the sea, I couldn't help but compare them to purple prose, the characters were bland, the story in boring I just didn't feel "the connection", I didn't care what happened next as long as the book ended.
I need to branch away from my usual medieval choices and try something new. And this gem is about as far away from my comfort zone which I am happy to venture out of at this moment in time. Aside from the fact this is not a novel about a Tudor romance, it is also a mystery. Due to the fact I am incredibly impatient and have the memory of a sieve this is also a genre I would never choose. But, despite a slow start, it was great, and I whizzed through it in a couple of afternoons — an ultimate holiday read!

Of course, this is also a chance of a lifetime for Kate and Lou — they will be able to explore in person the most famous wreck on the planet. The Titanic Enigma moves between two worlds — that of the hunt to discover and steal the lost secrets and that of the last days of the Titanic. In Europe was preparing for war and the scientific mystery carried aboard the vessel was a valuable prize. Tom West does a fine job of bringing life into both stories, evoking the past splendour of the Titanic plus what it reveals about class divisions as well as the alien awe of exploring its remains a century on.
The characters have a reality to them. The mysterious gentleman and his shipmates aboard the Titanic are vividly hinted at while Kate and Lou in the present day are not superhuman. They have a lot to be frightened about and they are. Also, one aspect I particularly liked is that some of the evil deeds that happen are hinted at and not salaciously displayed before the reader in all their detail. This actually made them seem more disturbing and believable.
