Killer In Paradise by Paul J. Mila

In FUGITIVE IN PARADISE, A fugitive finds safety in paradise . . . but for how long?

Cozumel scuba divers Terry and Joe Manetta are trying to stop a hotel project from destroying their tropical paradise.

When they cross paths with a fugitive on the run from both the Feds and a mafia hitman, someone will get hurt.

Cozumel regulars will enjoy recognizing familiar diving and snorkeling sites, local restaurants, and other island locations.


About the Author Paul Mila has expanded his horizons from Brooklyn to Baja and beyond. In 2002 He traded in his corporate suit for a wetsuit and now devotes his time to writing, scuba diving, underwater photography, and speaking to groups about ocean conservation. He has enjoyed photographing and diving with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas, humpback whales in the Dominican Republic and Tonga, great white sharks at Guadalupe Island, Mexico, and a wide variety of sea life around the world, including his home waters of Long Island, New York, and his favorite dive location: Cozumel, Mexico. Diving in the same waters as the characters in his books enables Paul to write exciting, realistic dive adventures and to accurately describe the beauty and wonder of our undersea world for non-diving readers.

Fugitive In Paradise is the sixth novel in his Terry & Joe Manetta dive adventure/thriller series. Paul has also co-authored Bubbles Up, a non-fiction collection of ocean adventures and sea creature encounters, with Judith Hemenway. He has published three entertaining and informative children’s books through Best Publishing Company, featuring sea turtles and his underwater photography: Harry Hawksbill Helps His Friends, Gracie Green Turtle Finds Her Beach, and Larry Loggerhead Travels to the Sea Turtle Hospital.

Paul and his family reside in Carle Place, New York. Besides diving and writing, Paul teaches underwater photography at Scuba Network, and coaches tennis at Carle Place High School.
