Review: TIP OF THE ICEBERG by Ash Hartwell

Now we know WHY Titanic collided with the iceberg! Seriously, horror doesn't come much more implacable than this. Given the nature of a closed environment, disaster-natural or man-made, serial killer or plague, any type of danger is inescapable. Neither good fortune or intelligence and cunning will suffice.

Although I appreciated the author's handling of the horror (and this is a horror novel), even more do I applaud his treatment of Edwardian society and culture, both British and American. Mr. Hartwell rings chords on the class system like ringing a bell, whose echoes and repercussions never fade.
