"A sweetheart of a thriller . . . [Donald Stanwood] pulls an
incredibly tangled story along as smooth as an ocean liner weighing
anchor. . . . For people who want a good read, The Memory of Eva
Ryker is one of the recent best." -The New York Times Book
"Sheer entertainment, expertly done . . . A glittering thread of malice and mystery." -Cosmopolitan
"A sure-fire combination of themes takes up where A Night to Remember and Raise the Titanic left off. . . . In a slick, fast-paced, and adroitly plotted suspense story, Stanwood brings together the strands of the Titanic disaster, including a starkly graphic re-creation of the ship's last minutes." -Publishers Weekly
