Based on historical records and eyewitness accounts, Collins has created a compelling thriller that centers NOT on the sinking of the ocean liner, but on a pair of murders that might have happened, involving some of its more notable passengers. The story is entertaining, well researched and read with effective versatility by New York actor Jeff Woodman. At its center is Jacques "Jack" Futrelle, the famous American mystery writer of the time. Woodman provides believable characterizations of Southern belles, cockney stewards and foreign passengers. But his interpretation of Futrelle--a large man in stature and in prominence--is weak and unremarkable. Nonetheless, THE TITANIC MURDERS is a mystery to remember.
