Friends' fishing adventure turns to terrifying ordeal

The Devil's Triangle By Mark Robson Published by Simon and Schuster ISBN 978 1 84738 978 7

It's surprising that the Bermuda Triangle has not been used in fiction more often. The area in the Atlantic Ocean where ships and aircraft have vanished seems to be the perfect setting for an adventure tale. Mark Robson's new caper corrects this oversight.
