Late in 1945, five U.S. Navy torpedo bombers took off from Florida on a routine training mission and soon vanished. Because there were other disappearances in the same area, it became known as the Bermuda Triangle. Many people say a strange force is there, while others say that natural events account for the disappearances. No one knows for sure.

The book starts off with the seemingly improbable disappearance of five U.S. Navy torpedo bombers in 1945. It then goes on to chronicle other planes and ships that vanished. A penultimate chapter offers several supernatural explanations (wormholes, aliens) as well as some scientific answers that include storms and lost planes that ran out of gas. Most interesting is the theory about methane gas bubbles that can envelop a ship in an instant. The topic will draw many readers. (ALA Booklist)
