    • Synopsis
    • On May 7, 1915, the British passenger ship Lusitania was torpedoed by a German U-boat. The ship went down in a horrific 18 minutes with 1,200 lives lost, including 100 Americans. This event led America to enter the war, and turned a European war into history’s first World War. But what really happened on that pivotal day in history? Ships simply don’t sink from a single torpedo, so why did it go down? Two Captains combines the action of Titanic and the suspense of The DaVinci Code in a thrilling murder-mystery, set in the present day, that flashes back to the sinking to unravel one of history’s greatest mysteries, and reveal the shocking truth for the first time ever.
