I loved this book. I was so engrossed in it that I just couldn't put it down. The only problem I have with it is that, as they are "mysteries", you rarely know what caused the ship to vanish, or "know the ending", so to speak. I have always held a facination for ships and submarines, and to some extent, the unexplained. However, these books can be somewhat boring due to it being about facts. But I feel Richard Winer did a very good job of holding the reader's attention. I would have liked for him to go into more detail on some of the ships and their crew though. I liked that he did not try to push the UFO-Paranormal idea on the ship's disappearances. However, that being said, there are many Ghostly Apparitions to some of the stories. Still, the writed leaves it up to the reader to decide what they feel these might be.

Great collection of mysterious stories, all involving ships or incidents at sea (Bermuda Triangle, missing boats, maritime tragedies that are unexplained, ghosts on ships, etc.)! A good read for those who love to read about ghosts and the paranormal!!!

Disappointing as the first book I've read about ghost ships as well as missing planes in the Devil's Triangle. Many of the stories at beginning of book contain very little fact and just end with "they were never seen or heard from again". Also several stories make reference to some famous ghost ships, but then those stories are not included in this book so it leaves you hanging if you're not familiar with their tales.
Includes a few black and white historic photos.
