In 1915, a German U-boat sank the British passenger liner Lusitania. Many Americans, including women and children, were among the 1200 dead, so the crime caused a storm of protest in America and helped plunge the US into World War I. In this gripping novel, an insurance investigator and his fiancée help a murdered longshoreman's widow who's been unjustly denied her husband's life insurance.

I enjoyed the book despite its shortcomings. The plot is a bit thin and some shortcuts are made for it all to come together. The characters could also be a bit more alive and not appear as stiff as they do.
