With the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic, several books have been released about the now-infamous cruise liner.

What if Sherlock Holmes was on the RMS Titanic? In the novel "The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Titanic Tragedy" (Titan Books, $9.95) by William Seil, Holmes and Dr. Watson are on board to carry out a secret government mission involving stolen submarine plans.

In Anita Stansfield's novel "Passage on the Titanic" (Covenant Communications, $16.99) she relates the story of Irene Corbett, the only known Utahn and member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be aboard the fated vessel along with several fictional characters.

In "The Company of the Dead," (Titan Books, $15.95) David J. Kowlaski uses the sinking of the Titanic for a 745-page novel that includes adventure and conspiracy theories linking the Titanic to President John F. Kennedy's assassination.

And now released in paperback, "Unsinkable: The Full Story of the RMS Titanic" by Daniel Allen Butler (DaCapo, $16) includes the day leading up to the sinking along with the aftermath in the years after.
