Can a place be inherently evil? Are the violent and paranormal events so frequently experienced throughout the history of the Bridgewater Triangle mere coincidence or evidence of an unseen, epic battle waged between the forces of good and evil? This is the true story of the area of southeastern Massachusetts that has become infamous worldwide for paranormal activity. Peter Tower traces the history of this mysterious and terrifying area, from its beginnings after the last ice age through the many bizarre and infamous paranormal events experienced there in the 1970s and 1980s. The author’s engaging storytelling technique combines in-depth research of the area’s geologic and cultural history with narrative vignettes and firsthand interviews from people that have encountered UFOs, Bigfoot, and mystery creatures, and experienced other unexplained events there. Tower brings the area to life in such a vivid fashion that the book proves to be nearly as mysterious and frightening for readers as experiencing the Bridgewater Triangle first-hand.
