Toronto author Alexander Galant, who worked as historical researcher for the NY Times Best Seller Dracula the Un-Dead, will be publishing his first full length thriller novel The Depth of Deception, just in time for the centennial anniversary of the RMS Titanic.
“It’s connected to – but not about – Titanic,” said Alexander Galant about the plot of his novel. “Depth of Deception is set in 1982, where a young woman is found floating on a wooden deck chair in the North Atlantic. She’s unconscious, and wearing Edwardian clothing. Her only identification is a ticket for the Titanic. Meanwhile, an insurance investigator in the United Kingdom looks into an unsolved murder that his grandfather was accused of botching back in 1909. Someone had submitted a claim for a missing brooch that was the victim’s, and the search for that item of jewellery puts many people in danger, including the mysterious young woman.”
The book will be available first as an e-book on April 2, 2012 through Smashwords.com, Amazon and the book’s official website, and then later as a paperback. Until then, you can get a taste of what is to come on the website, where there is a sample chapter, a synopsis, photos and other bonus information that touches on elements used in the plotline.
