Divers Terry Hunter and her husband, ex-NYPD detective Joe Manetta, are busy running their Cozumel dive operation and starting a family. But a chance encounter with a female diver from Holland leads them on a globetrotting adventure, from the balmy Caribbean to the frigid North Atlantic. While diving with humpback whales in the Dominican Republic, they learn a rogue sea captain is illegally hunting whales and killing activists attempting to stop the hunt.
But far more dangerous for the whales is a conspiracy led by Japan, Iceland, Finland and Norway, to overturn the International Whaling Commission’s whaling ban at the Commission’s upcoming meeting in Iceland. Terry and Joe travel to Iceland, offering their assistance to save the whales and solve a cover-up reaching the highest levels of government. Their involvement entangles them in a dangerous world of international politics, intrigue and murder, where fate has a surprise in store for them.

“Reading Dangerous Waters is almost as good as scuba diving. The book delivers adventure, suspense, thrills and romance, along with plenty of underwater action. The main characters, Terry Hunter and Joe Manetta, are appealing and attractive; totally modern yet with a touch of old fashioned values. This is an excellent novel for both divers and non-divers.” -- Bonnie J. Cardone,former editor of Skin Diver Magazine, author of Shipwrecks of Southern California and Fireside Diver.
“In his sequel to Dangerous Waters, Paul Mila has crafted another exciting adventure-mystery featuring Terry Hunter and Joe Manetta. Mila skillfully combines an intricate mystery plot with engaging characters and insights from a different culture, allowing his readers to experience the world from a novel perspective: that of the whales and dolphins who inhabit three-quarters of our planet. Don’t miss this one!” -Judith Hemenway, author of The Universe Next Door.
