Katsu is back! This time, injecting the supernatural into two of historys most intriguing tragedies, the sinkings of the RMS Titanic and her sister ship the Britannic. Young, humble, and deeply troubled Annie Hebbley, wishes to escape her past, and hires on as a first class stewardess for the Titanic’s maiden voyage. Doting on rich elites like the Astors, Guggenheim, Stead, and the Duff Gordons, keeps stewards and stewardesses busy, day and night. One first class passenger in particular, catches Annie’s eye. What Annie feels for Mark Fletcher is undeniable and unexplainable. Or is it? While servants run ragged fulfilling the requests of the rich and pampered, the bored socialites fill their hours with teatimes, gossiping, dressing for dinner, and extravagant parties. When W.T. Stead hosts a séance in his stateroom, he ushers in a menacing spirit resulting in the death of a child. Or, has the Sea Witch that Annie encountered as a child been waiting for this exact opportunity to claim her price of ‘an innocent?’ I really enjoyed the Upstairs/Downstairs approach to story telling here; the juxtaposition between the haves and have-nots and the first class, third class, and servant class dynamics. Katsu displays an intimate knowledge of the history involved and relishes flaunting the “what ifs” everywhere she finds gaps and holes in well-known stories. This is as haunted, dark, sexy, and sumptuous as a tragedy can get.
