About the book :
The Morning Star Agency is an organization that has existed across the world for many centuries. Its agents are powerful, charismatic individuals; some more than human, some merely unique. It is rumoured that the Agency President, Mr. Morningstar, is immortal, and has had a remarkable degree of influence on our history.
Terror on the Titanic, the first case report to be released from the Agency archives, stars agent Nathaniel Brown, a young Anglo-Indian man with many strange talents – he can speak to animals, has incredibly sharp senses and the skills of many jungle creatures. He owes these to his training – his (very famous) father was raised by wolves.
It’s 1912, Brown is on the Titanic, and his mission is to prevent a stolen jewel from reaching America.
Simple enough, except that monstrous aliens are also involved.
And since this a Morningstar Agency adventure, the fate of our world hangs in the balance.
