April 1912. Im Kampf um das Blaue Band rast der Luxusdampfer Titanic gegen einen Eisberg. Während das Schiff sinkt, zwingt ein Passagier einen Seemann mit vorgehaltener Pistole, ihn in die Stahlkammern zu führen. Denn mit der Titanic droht der letzte Vorrat des Kernelements Byzanium zu versinken. Und nur der, der das Byzanium hat, kann sich einen Vorsprung in der Atomwaffenproduktion sichern. Es geht um Leben und Tod, um Überleben und Macht. Der Seemann überlebt die Katastrophe. Er ist der einzige Zeuge. Als er Jahrzehnte später aufgefunden wird, beginnt ein Abenteuer mit politischem Kalkül: die spektakulärste Bergungsaktion der Geschichte. Als die US Navy versucht, das Wrack der Titanic zu heben, sind auch die Russen zur Stelle. Wer wird das Rennen machen? Und befindet sich das begehrte Bynanium eigentlich noch im Rumpf des gesunkenen Luxusdampfers? Anmerkung der Redaktion: Als Cussler den Roman schrieb, war das Wrack der Titanic noch nicht entdeckt.

The ShipCraft series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sister-ships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring colour profiles and highly-detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modelling section reviews the strengths and weaknesses of available kits, lists commercial accessory sets for super-detailing of the ships, and provides hints on modifying and improving the basic kit. This is followed by an extensive photographic gallery of selected high-quality models in a variety of scales, and the book concludes with a section on research references books, monographs, large-scale plans and relevant websites.This is the first volume in the series not devoted to a naval vessel, but the most famous liner of all time is a suitable subject as one of the most popular of all ship modelling subjects. Apart from Titanic herself, this volume also covers her sister ships Olympic and Britannic which enjoyed longer and more varied careers, including wartime service as troopship and hospital ship.
