"Fireworks" (now available through AuthorHouse) by Paul J. Mila, features the return of SCUBA divers Terry Hunter and her husband, ex-NYPD detective Joe Manetta, in their third adventure, battling Al Qaeda terrorists in, and under, New York's waters. The story was inspired by the author's New York City background.
"Paul Mila's popular underwater duo, Terry and Joe Manetta, discover that their Mexican Caribbean paradise is no refuge from global terrorism's harsh reality... Another terrific page-turner that will keep you guessing all the way!" writes Judith Hemenway, author of The Universe Next Door.
In Pakistan, a Navy SEAL on a covert mission intercepts information indicating Al Qaeda intends to attack New York City during the upcoming July 4th celebrations, when both Queen Elizabeth and the super-liner Queen Mary 2 will be visiting the Big Apple. When Joe's former NYPD partner draws the underwater defense assignment, he requests help. So Terry, Joe, and a very remarkable dolphin journey from Cozumel Mexico's crystal Caribbean Sea to New York's murky Hudson River. But the terrorists are planning a bigger bang than anyone suspects, and Homeland Security Forces have only days to unravel their deadly plot.
Mila, now retired after a successful career in the corporate sector, devotes his time to writing, scuba diving around the world, underwater photography and speaking to groups about the growing need for ocean conservation. This is his third novel. Mila's underwater photographs are featured on numerous diving websites. His books and photos provide non-diving readers a glimpse into the beauty of the undersea world. He and his family reside in Carle Place, New York.
