Excerpt

From Everest

"What's the matter with you, kid? Why don't you look where you're going?" "Sorry." Dominic picked up the vial and scooted out of the way. Mom had continuous nightmares that climbing would kill at least one member of her family. I'll bet she wasn't expecting it to happen like this, he reflected, a little shaken. The SUV accelerated up the ramp, pausing at the top. The driver tossed a candy bar wrapper into the trash barrel and drove off. It was a Summit Energy Bar. Dominic recognized the logo from where he stood, rooted to the spot. He had climbed towering cliffs, yet walking up this gentle slope to get that piece of paper seemed much, much harder. He reached into the garbage and fished out the sticky wrapper. In a way, he almost knew what he would see before he turned it over. A V! It was a ticket to the top of the world.

Titanic #1: Unsinkable
Excerpt

From Titanic Book One: Unsinkable

RMS CARPATHIA
Monday, April 15, 1912, 9:30 A.M.

They stood four deep on the afterdeck of the Carpathia, chilled to the bone, staring out at nothing. Dark water, light swells-no evidence that barely seven hours before, the largest and most magnificent ship the world had ever seen had sailed there in all her glory. The truth was nearly impossible to believe: The RMS Titanic lay at the bottom of the sea, along with everyone who sailed in her, save the 706 souls rescued and now aboard the Carpathia.
"Look!"
The cry energized the exhausted throng. A flash of color among the endless waves.
A survivor?
And then the swell turned over the item that stirred their frozen hearts with momentary hope. A deck chair. Nothing more.
