The Best Selling Novel - By Sir Arthur C. Clarke

Story so far…
We met Jason Bradley, Donald and Edith Craig and Roy Emerson and learned how they became rich and famous.

Roy joins the board of Parkinson's and a mystery customer requests for quotations for a few million bubbles of toughened glass.

Roy thinks that he is after the Titanic and London Times publishes some rumours about plans to raise it. Roy and Rupert Parkinson also talk about raising the Titanic. Rupert is going to hire Jason Bradley to do a feasibility study on it.

We saw Jason chasing away Oscar, the giant octopus who attacked the Hibernia platform.
Next we saw Rupert meeting Jason and Roy to discuss about raising the Titanic. After that, Dr. Kato Mitsumasa met Jason and the Craigs to discuss about the same thing.
