Brian gives an overview of the book:

October carries with it a chill that Benny Watt can't seem to shake. Ever since the Titantic sank, he's been burdened with thoughts of his own mortality. It keeps him up nights, in fact. Money and women are plentiful for Mr. Watt but, at 34, he can't help but feel that his life is missing something important: a family. He's certain that should he marry and have children, the nagging constant of his inevitable demise will be stifled. So, when he sets his mind upon a beautiful young girl named Edith, Benny feels his world finally bears merit. In a whirlwind romance, they marry. Benny has it all: political power, money, cars, a gorgeous, young wife, enemies that die gruesomely should they ever upset said wife...wait...what?
