It's April 15th, 1912, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Harland and Claire Wydner-Doyle have just been informed that the ship they're standing on, the unsinkable Titanic, is in fact sinking. Hogwash! Even more ludicrous, Mrs. Wydner-Doyle's lifebelt is quite odorous, and everyone's too busy panicking to bring them a tipple of champagne. The shame of it!

Published Reviews

"From silly to solemn, McKeever writes it all so well."

Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

"When McKeever goes for laughs, he finds them in a big way. His sense of humor is rapier-like."

Paul Gallotta, City Link
