Format: Paperback
I happened across this book while cleaning, and figured it would be one of the over the top, 70s "exposés" of mysterious phenomena. I started reading a few pages, and before I knew it I was hooked. It is actually a balanced look at many of the "mysterious disappearances" in the so-called Devil's Triangle up to the book's publication date in the mid-1970s.

The author is a sailor, and is well-aware of the many dangers of the sea: weather, currents, faulty equipment, inexperienced sailors, etc. He does not state that there aren't strange and unusual, even supernatural phenomena operating in the triangle. However, he looks into a few of the cases that received wide publicity, and gives a little more data, such as the hurricane that went through the area at the time of the craft's disappearance-giving possible and reasonable hypotheses regarding the missing or damaged craft.

Since the author is a sailor, who has sailed in the Devil's Triangle many times and experienced extreme weather and odd phenomena, he does a good job of describing the conditions likely on a vessel during a hurricane, or when a storm is approaching. I also appreciated his describing a few tragedies, or near tragedies, that happened in these waters that we do have good documentation. With only a few changes in circumstances (such as the vessel losing radio communication, the plane not filing a flight plan, etc.) these tragedies could have become another of the mysterious disappearances within the Devil's Triangle.

Even though the book is over 30 years old, I still found it a very readable and enjoyable book about the Devil's Triangle. Even though the experiences that he discusses happened quite a while ago, the information does not feel dated.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great place to begin researching the Devil's Triangle. The author simply states the facts, he doesn't lean towards the occult, nor does he deny the strangeness of the events which have occured there. The last chapter is aptly titled "Natural or Supernatural?" If you can find this book it is worth it-- ...

This book has the story of how my sister Dolores Shapiro Warren and her husband Paul Warren died on July 23, 1971. I am so happy I have been able to find a copy as I had misplaced mine,
