In the early hours of 15 April 1912, the Cunard steamship CARPATHIA receives a distress call from the new White Star liner TITANIC. Captain Arthur Rostron immediately turns CARPATHIA northwest and sails full speed through the dark night, into waters laden with icebergs.

Almost a century later, CARPATHIA's wreck has been finally located. She's over 500 feet down and only a few divers in the world can attain this depth. Among them is Englishman Ric Waring's team, who are determined to be the first to reach the wreck.

In this captivating and intensively researched story, we follow the dual narratives of Rostron and CARPATHIA, and of Waring's team and their dangerous determination to reach the wreck. We learn the history - and the fate - of CARPATHIA, beyond 1912 and into World War I. Rich in history and drama, this true story reads like the best fiction.
