10 April, 1912As the RMS Titanicleaves from Southampton Docks for her maiden voyage to New York, little do her 2,223 passengers dream of the powers at play on board the ship and the terrifying fate that awaits them far out in the icy wastes of the Atlantic.
For on board the Titanicare three men - among the richest in America - who, with the President of the United States an unwitting pawn in their scheme, are about to make an announcement that will change the course of history.
Aware of the gravity of the situation, the head of British Intelligence dispatches his best and most trusted agent, Alex Tremayne, onto the Titanic with one objective in mind - he has to stop the men from reaching New York, by whatever means necessary.
Aided by the cooly beautiful American agent Maria Weston, is Alex prepared for the lengths he will have to go to to fulfil his mission?
