Depth of Deception

Depth of Deception I devoured Depth of Deception in just a couple of sittings I thought it was so well paced and plotted, in terms of the cliffhangers at the end of the chapters, and the various twists and turns Yet I felt the whole mystery came together nicely and found I was willing to suspend my disbelief than I thought I would be when it came to the possibility of time travel So, all in all intriguing, entertaining and well executed by Alexander Galant.You don t have to be a fan of Titanic to enjoy this thrilling mystery I love reading about the Titanic, and when I saw this book, I had to have it This book was awesome It grabbed me from the very beginning and I didn t want it to end.The book has two main plots that come together beautifully at the end In America, we follow the mystery of Myra, who appears to have traveled in time to 1982 from the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 I loved Myra She s a strong, proper lady, devoted to her family When she finds her son, who is now a 70 year old man, I felt their grief when they realized they missed a lifetime together I m not big with time travel stories, but I absolutely loved this one.In England, Callum is hired to follow the trail of an insurance claim for a brooch that was believed to have gone down with the Titanic As his investigation progresses, he finds himself looking into a cold case murder case from 1909, which puts the lives of his current investigation in danger There s so much going on with this part of the story, I was a bit overwhelmed trying to keep track of everyone and how they were related to each other, but I just made notes in my handy dandy notepad to reference back to I do that a lot In 1982, technology and science was just starting to change I loved reading about some of the new gadgets such as the car phone and thermal paper fax machines My parents had one of those car phones, it was about the size of a shoe box, and reading about those things made me laugh at the memories The author also has a web site set up with some great pictures of items mentioned in the book But you have to read the book to know the password in order to access them.This is by far the best mystery book I ve read this year The story is fast paced with lots of action going on You won t get bored with this one.

Not my usual genre, but gave it a try because of the implied time travel intersection, and the high ratings and awards Definitely a light and fast read, good for the beach or an airplane.It seemed a bit cartoony, with shallow and stereotyped characters, and entirely too many convenient coincidences in the plot lines Too much suspension of disbelief was required to blow through thisThe ending left me unsatisfied, particularly in the open question of the time travel and its mechanism.On the plus side, the author obviously has a deep love of the Titanic history subject, and his extensive research shines through, though at times they drop in as heavy info dumps however, their effect on story pace is minimal. Not my usual genre because this book isn t a romance but it is a very good paranormal mystery time travel story This is the first book I ve read by Alexander Galant and I have to hand it to him.he created a book that held my interest right to the last page I enjoyed reading the circuitous route the author took me on to reach a rather surprising conclusion At first, I was thinking this story is going in way too many directionshow was he going to wrap it all up So many similar names, characters from past and presentI almost felt like I needed a spread sheet to keep the details, characters and clues straight and all the time my mind was traveling ahead trying to put the clues together to figure it out for myself before I got to the ending It was quickly and neatly wrapped up with some surprises at the end.The author has nicely interspersed fact with fiction providing some details of the actual sinking of the Titanic, treating them as fiction in his story He also explains at the beginning that parts of the story taking place in the US would include the American spelling of words while parts taking place in the U.K would include the English spelling of words Color vs colour was one example he gave I would recommend this book to people who enjoy time travel as well as mystery and suspense stories I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review Wow What an amazing book There were a few minor editing errors that I noticed while reading, but I m not sure if they are from the use of British expressions that I am not familiar with the author notes at the beginning that he chose to use both American and British expressions and spelling depending on the characters or actual errors I read this book in just one weekend and it was very hard to put down The murder mystery historical thriller genre is not one I choose to read, but Mr Galant has probably changed that for me Looking forward to by this author I like mysteries, historical novels and SF Put them all together and it s a treat for me I enjoyed almost everything about this book, from Mr Galant s writing style to the intersecting plot lines to the touch of time travel I even enjoyed the afterward for it s historical perspective I initially had a hard time keeping all the characters straight, and how the separate mysteries connected to each other, but it all made sense in the end And the descriptions of the Titanic were a bonus To Alexander Galant Please, sir, may we have some I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it. Scroll down for English versionUn viaggio sulle onde del tempoIl 2012, oltre a essere l anno della fine del mondo prevista dai Maya, anche quello del centenario dell affondamento del Titanic Come conseguenza di ci c stata una tendenza molto diffusa tra gli autori a scrivere dei romanzi che in qualche modo si rifanno a questa ricorrenza Essendo sempre stata molto affascinata dalle navi non solo quelle che affondano , non ho potuto fare a meno di scaricare sul mio Kindle alcuni di questi romanzi, che adesso sto leggendo Il primo che mi capitato proprio Depth of Deception e ne sono rimasta piacevolmente sorpresa.La trama tra realismo e sospensione dell incredulit costruita in maniera magistrale Lo stile dell autore estremamente diretto, cosa che facilita non poco la lettura ai non madrelingua, ma non per questo banale Di fronte alla storia impossibile di una donna, che sembra aver viaggiato nel tempo dalla notte di quella tragedia fino ai giorni nostri in realt gli anni 80 , il mio gusto per questo tipo di fantastico si subito risvegliato Mi chiedevo come l autore potesse giustificare un fatto cos assurdo, che di pagina in pagina pareva corrispondere a realt , e allo stesso tempo far coesistere un intreccio cos ricco di particolari plausibili e realistici La curiosit , unita al ritmo coinvolgente della narrazione, mi ha spinto ad arrivare in davvero poco tempo sono stata costretta a una interruzione solo per via di una vacanza durante la quale non mi andava di portare con me il Kindle al sorprendente finale, che a mio parere perfetto Sarebbe infatti stato molto facile sbagliare proprio questa parte essenziale del libro e rovinarlo del tutto, ma Alexander Galant non l ha fatto una lettura che consiglio agli amanti delle storie ricche di mistero, che per non disdegnino lasciarsi andare ogni tanto alla semplice accettazione dell inspiegabile.Davvero un ottimo libro.A journey on the waves of timeThe 2012, in addition to being the year of the end of the world predicted by the Maya, is also the centenary of the sinking of Titanic As a consequence there has been a widespread tendency among authors to write novels that somehow are based on this event Having always been fascinated by ships not just those that sink , I could not help but download on my Kindle some of these novels, which I am now reading The first that comes to me is actually Depth of Deception and I was pleasantly surprised.The plot between realism and suspension of disbelief is built in a masterly manner The author s style is very direct, which really facilitates the reading to non native speakers, but by no means banal Faced with the impossible story of a woman who seems to have traveled through time from the night of the tragedy to this day in fact the 80s , my taste for this kind of fantastic was immediately awakened I wondered how the author could justify something so absurd, that page after page seemed to correspond to reality, and at the same time let coexist of a plot so full of plausible and realistic details Curiosity, combined with the addictive rhythm of the narrative, has prompted me to get in very little time I was forced to a stop only because of a vacation where I did not want to take my Kindle to the surprising ending, which in my opinion is perfect It would indeed be very easy to mistake this very essential part of the book and ruin it completely, but Alexander Galant has not done so.It is a reading that I recommend to lovers of stories full of mystery, but who do not disdain to let go sometimes to the simple acceptance of the inexplicable.Really a great book.
