Book review: The Company of the Dead by David J Kowalski

Mixing history with a touch of sci-fi and adding a good dollop of conspiracy theories, The Company of the Dead was a fascinating read.

The premise plays on the butterfly effect – one small action can have a big effect further down the line. In this case, a time traveller gives the lookout on the Titanic a pair of night vision binoculars, but as history tries to reassert itself the plot flits between 1912 and 2012 – but a very different 2012 to the one we live in.

Roswell, an America occupied by Germany and Japan, and JFK all make an appearance in this fascinating story which is a must for any history buffs who enjoy a good yarn.
