185 HICKS, Brian When the Dancing Stopped : The Real Story of the Morro Castle Disaster and Its Deadly Wake.
Free Press, New York, 2006, ISBN:9780743280082 
HICKS, Brian. When the Dancing Stopped : The Real Story of the Morro CastleDisaster and Its Deadly Wake. New York : Free Press, (2006). First Printin g. Pp [i]-xxi,(1),[1]-346,+ 8 pp plates. Index. 8vo, grey cloth spine, greypaper covered boards, black lettering to spine. "During the dark days of t he Great Depression, thousands of weary souls escaped their bleak lives fora week of paradise aboard the Ward Line's glamorous cruise ship, the Morro Castle. It was the most famous passenger liner of its day, lightning fast, elegantly appointed. It was also a ticking time bomb. It was the summer of 1934. Two sailors joined the Morro Castle crew, one a teenager on his firs t job away from home, the other a dangerous psychopath. Within two months, they would witness the end of the party in a single night of death, killer storms, and catastrophic fire. And that was only the beginning of a twenty-year-long story. In When the Dancing Stopped, we too walk up the gangplank to that art-deco liner and, at first, enjoy the glamour and the sultry Havana nights. With mounting suspense, we also witness the launch of a mystery that mesmerized the nation and then, in the midst of troubled times, faded away. Award-winning author Brian Hicks, using newly declassified FBI files,thousands of pages of investigation notes, testimony, and new interviews, takes the reader on a mid-century cruise through history, revealing a cold-case file that had been, until now, left unsolved for history. And, as he relates in this work of masterful storytelling, it all began with the last cruise of the Morro Castle. One of those two men, Thomas Torresson Jr., first sailed on the cruise ship as a high school senior recovering from seriousillness and soon found a love that would endure his entire life. Within mo nths, he would join the crew. For George Rogers, a gifted radio operator with a secret past, the ship was merely the latest in a long line of jobs. Their paths would cross several times on the way to their destiny, and the disaster would affect the two in very different ways: one would become famous, the other scarred forever. In the grand tradition of The Devil in the White City, Hicks details a desperate investigation and the search for what may be the modern era's first serial killer through the tragic backdrop of a country suffering through depression and a buildup to war. With cameos by J. Edgar Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Ernest Hemingway, When the Dancing Stopped is the captivating true story of two men irrevocably bound by history—a true American hero and a dangerous killer masquerading as one. Morethan that, there is the larger cast of characters: crew members and passen gers, investigators, scoundrels, and, yes, additional victims. For the story that began on that storm-tossed night off the coast of New Jersey continued, as we now learn, for decades to come." - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 18.00

Illustrated 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The first critical analysis of the Titanic as modern myth, this book focuses on the second of thetwo Titanics. The first was the physical Titanic, the rusting remnants of which can still be found twelve thousand feet below the north Atlantic. Thesecond is the mythical Titanic, which emerged just as its tangible predece ssor slipped from view on 15 April 1912. It is the second of the two Titanics which remains the more interesting and which continues to carry culturalresonances today. 'The Myth of the Titanic' begins with the launching of t he 'unsinkable ship' and ends with the outbreak of the 'war to end all wars'. It provides an insight into the particular culture of late Edwardian Britain and beyondd this draws far greater conclusions about the complex relationships between myth, history, popular culture and society as a whole." - from the dust jacket.

Accounts of the fates met by Canadian passen gers on the doomed liner, along with a description of Halifax's role in theaftermath of the wreck. "Hustak's chronicles are more poignant than fictio n, such as the tale of Quigg Baxter, the young Montreal hockey plater who risked all to smuggle his Belgian fiancee aboard; the Fortune family from Winnipeg which failed to heed a clairvoyant's warning; and Harry Markland Molson, the richest Canadian aboard who was persuaded by Toronto millionaire Arthur Peuchen to extend his stay in England and sail home with hom on the Titanic. Hustak discloses the scandalous behaviour of second class passsenger Joseph Fynney and tells of the young honeymooners Bert and Vera Dick of Calgary who started an enduring legend about the disaster. Some books insistthe Titanic's last victim, found in a lifeboat a month after the disaster, was from New Jersey; others say he was from Chicago. In fact he was Thomso n Beattie of Winnipeg." - from the rear cover and front flap. Very good. 17.00
