The Triangle by Dan Koboldt, Mindy McGinnis, and Sylvia Spruck Wrigley

Planes and ships have historically gone missing in the area dubbed The Bermuda Triangle, but until now no explanation has ever been found.

When a Navy ship goes missing during a storm, it's the last straw. A team of experts is assembled and an investigation is launched. But the team itself is soon swept out to sea as well, landing on an island that shouldn't be there. What they discover is a secret that's been brewing for decades, one that could leave them stranded until their dying days unless they can unravel the secrets of The Triangle!

This was my first Serial Box experience and I have to tell you, I am sold!

Each week, a new episode is released and readers have the option of listening to the audio production (and it is a production, with sound effects and everything!) or reading the installment instead. The episodes are about an hour a piece, some longer, and each is written by one of the contributing authors. In this case, Dan Koboldt penned the first, Mindy McGinnis the second, Sylvia Spruck Wrigley the third, and so on.

The story comes together seamlessly, you'd never know that three very different authors had a hand in putting it together. And it is such a fabulously fun story.

Of course I've always been drawn to stories about The Bermuda Triangle. The fact that I have huge water phobias only adds to my curiosity about any kind of water based mystery or horrors and The Bermuda Triangle is undoubtedly the biggest of them all!

In The Triangle, a retired Naval officer, a computer analyst, a conspiracy theorist, and an NTSB investigator come together to solve the mystery of a missing ship. Two things conspire to put them out on the water itself: the discovery of a survivor of a plane that recently went missing the questionable area—the first survivor ever to be found, in fact; and coordinates that could lead straight to the missing Naval ship and officers. But before they make it, they're boarded by a dogged investigator who wants answers.

Soon enough, the team and the cop find out exactly what fate has befallen all the other missing ships and planes. Virtual strangers, they are forced to trust one another and work together not only to solve the growing mysteries of the island but to survive and hopefully make their way home again.

The Triangle is incredible fun and a perfect summer read! Maybe don't dive in while your airborne though that's exactly what I'd do if I had a vacation planned :)
