Synopsis

Kitty Hawk and the Tragedy of the RMS Titanic is the thrillingly cryptic fourth installment of the exciting Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series featuring the intrepid teenage seaplane pilot Kitty Hawk and her various adventures of mystery and intrigue as she follows in the footsteps of Amelia Earhart on an epic flight around the world. This fourth book in the series brings Kitty to the emerald hills of Ireland where she meets a handsome stranger and is quickly swept up in a perplexing hundred-year-old family treasure hunt involving secret codes and puzzling clues that lead her on a fast-paced adventure that carries her from Dublin to London - from the decks of the ill-fated ocean liner Titanic to the temples of ancient Egypt and the streets of Jack the Ripper - until she finally unlocks the mystery and discovers the long-hidden treasure. Much like the earlier books in this series, Kitty Hawk and the Tragedy of the RMS Titanic is a perfect book to fire the imaginations of armchair detectives of all ages. Filled with fascinating and highly Google-able locations and history the reader will find themselves immersed in brand new worlds that are brought to life before their very eyes as Kitty Hawk experiences the stories and history of a doomed ocean liner and unravels the Tragedy of the RMS Titanic.

My review

This book has to be my favourite of all the Kitty Hawk books so far! I just loved the mystery she was solving, and how it became so much more than just the Titanic. I may be biased, but I also loved reading about it set in London, because I'm always going to have pride for my hometown.

As usual, lots of information is given about the given topic and this time around it really intrigued me to learn more about both the Titanic and Jack the Ripper. All the in-depth description really made me want to explore my city and the rest of the UK more.

As these books progress, I find myself enjoying the action parts more and more. However, I would've liked to see Kitty doing all these things with Charlie instead of introducing lots of new secondary characters that I didn't get attached to.

Again, Kitty Hawk brings me so much wanderlust and hopefully one day I get to explore all the places Kitty does.
