Titanic Secret Revealed in Louise Patten’s Good as Gold to be Released this April

April 10, 2012

Good as Gold – Louise Patten

“Revealed after 100 years: The REAL reason why the Titanic hit that iceberg”  ~Daily Mail

For generations, Quentance Bank has managed the private wealth of its rich clients. When Edie is pushed into joining the family business, she finds the work tedious. As a diversion, she seeks to uncover the truth about her great-grandfather Kit. Branded a coward and a thief, Kit Quentance escaped from Titanic and was rumoured to have carried a fortune into the lifeboat with him.

 Edie’s excavations reveal shocking truths about Titanic’s sinking as well as unearthing far more recent secrets about Quentance Bank. Her twin brother, her parents, her uncle—is there anyone out there she can trust?

 Praise for Louise Patten:

 “Exciting and highly topical” ~Good Book Guide

 “Family’s Titanic secret revealed..Confusion about steering orders was responsible for the Titanic sinking, according to a relative of one of the ship’s officers…(Louise) Patten has worked the story of the catastrophe into her latest novel, GOOD AS GOLD.” ~BBC News


Louise Patten has worked in business since 1977, first in the banking world and then with strategy consultants Bain & Company. While still in her thirties, Louise broke through the corporate glass ceiling to become a main board director of her first FTSE 100 company. She has served on a number of multi-national boards, not only as a director, but also as one of a handful of female chairmen of major UK businesses. Married with one daughter, Louise lives in London and Somerset.
