For the four fraught, mysterious days of her doomed maiden voyage in 1912, the Titanic sails towards New York, glittering with luxury, freighted with millionaires and hopefuls.
 
In her labyrinthine passageways are played out the last, secrets hours of a small group of passengers, their fate sealed in prose of startling, sublime beauty, as Beryl Bainbridge's haunting masterpiece moves inexorably to its known and terrible end.
 
"Brilliant... do not miss this novel."
(Victoria Glendinning, Daily Telegraph)

"Extraordinary...both a psychologically convincing re-creation and a wholly news and highly individual work of art...beautifully written."
(Independent)
