An astonishing discovery is made when the two halves of the Titanic are raised from the seabed—six perfectly preserved bodies, including a beautiful woman who was not listed among the ship’s original passengers. The mission to discover her secret becomes obsessive—and dangerous.
Two years before the centennial anniversary of the Titanic's demise, two powerful corporations are competing to raise the two halves of the famous ship. But what they find deep beneath the ocean's surface is more than they bargained for: six perfectly preserved bodies, including one of a beautiful woman who was not listed among the ship's original passengers. Who was she-and what was her secret? The mission to find out becomes all-consuming-and, for some, deadly.
This fast-paced tale combines a centuries-old mystery with thoroughly modern suspense-and Clarke's unmatched vision of future technologies.
