Product description

A stowaway, a stolen book, a murderous villain: an adventure on the most famous shipwreck in history. The great ocean liner "Titanic" is preparing to cross the Atlantic. Onboard is a sinister thief bent on stealing a rare book that may be the key to unlocking infinite treasure; a wealthy academic traveling home to America with his rare book collection; and Patrick Waters, a twelve-year-old Irish boy who is certain that his job as a steward on the unsinkable ship will be the adventure of a lifetime. In "Dangerous Waters "by Gregory Mone, disguises, capers, and danger abound as the ship makes its way toward that fateful iceberg, where Patrick will have to summon all his wits in order to survive.

Review quote

"Mone seamlessly integrates details of the "Titanic" and its fate into Patrick's story, and his passages about the ocean voyage are vivid, even lyrical." --"School Library Journal""Mone spins a capable caper, complete with villains so nasty you can picture them twiddling their mustaches." --"Booklist""The descriptions are magnificent." --"Kirkus Reviews""Mr. Mone has created an enjoyable and at times poignant literary drama. With an echo of survivor Helen Candee, he writes of the sinking's ghastly cacophony: 'This was the music of hell.' " --"The "Wall Street Journal"""Mone quickly entices readers with criminal intrigue, characters who range from eccentric to entirely ordinary, and, of course, the singular setting that is the Titanic." --"Publishers Weekly"
