  Paul Mila's Fireworks

FIREWORKS: Brave SCUBA divers, a heroic dolphin and N.Y.P.D. Homeland Security Forces battle Al Qaeda terrorists in a July 4th thriller you won’t put down until the explosive conclusion.

FIREWORKS is the third adventure featuring scuba divers Terry Hunter and her husband, retired NYPD Detective Joe Manetta.

In Pakistan, a Navy SEAL intercepts information indicating Al Qaeda is planning an attack in New York City when Queen Elizabeth and the super liner Queen Mary 2 will be in town during July 4th celebrations.


Joe's former partner, Detective Bill Ryan, requests their help aiding the NYPD and Federal Agents in preventing the attack. Terry, Joe, and a very remarkable dolphin, journey from Cozumel’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 the deadly plot.

About the Author

Paul J. Mila traded in his corporate suit for a wetsuit, and now devotes his time to writing, scuba diving around the world, underwater photography, and speaking to groups about ocean conservation.  He has enjoyed the opportunity to photograph and dive with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas, humpback whales in the Dominican Republic and the South Pacific Tonga Islands, diverse sea life in the Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Bonaire, Hawaii, Antigua, and in his home waters off Long Island, NY. 

Paul’s underwater pictures have been featured in magazines, National Geographic Television, and on web sites related to scuba diving.

Following the advice of writers who said to write about what you know and like, he has incorporated the ocean and diving as the core of his writing.  FIREWORKS is his third novel. Diving in the same waters as the characters in his books has enabled him to write with realism, and to describe for non-diving readers the beauty and wonder of exploring our undersea world.

He and his family reside in Carle Place, New York, a small town on Long Island.
