Dangerous Waters is a fast-paced, action-adventure thriller about a young woman’s struggle to overcome adversity. The story has all the ingredients for a gripping undersea adventure: Ferocious sharks, friendly dolphins, nefarious criminals, and enough chemistry between an athletic, sexy heroine and a bold hero to spark romance in the steamy Caribbean. Written to appeal to divers and non-divers alike, Dangerous Waters is the perfect book to enjoy reading under a beach umbrella or palm tree.
Terry Hunter is athletic, attractive, and determined to overcome whatever obstacles life throws her way. Diving off the California coast on a research expedition with her fiancé, a brutal shark attack changes her world forever. Terry struggles to rebuild her life, becoming a dive instructor in Monterey Bay California, and eventually moving to Cozumel, Mexico, where she becomes a successful businesswoman, running her own dive operation.
But the waters turn dangerous for Terry once again, when she unwittingly uncovers a drug smuggling scheme and becomes entwined in an international investigation being conducted by NYPD Detective Joe Manetta and a joint U.S. and Mexican task force.
The target of their investigation turns out to be someone who has more than one reason for wanting Terry dead. It’s a race against time for Joe and the task force, as they attempt to snare a dangerous criminal and, aided by a pair of dolphins whom Terry befriended earlier in the story, try to save Terry's life.
Reviews for Dangerous Waters:
“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 fashion values. This is an excellent novel for both divers and non-divers.”

Paul Mila has a home run with Dangerous Waters. Anyone who is familiar with the Island of Cozumel will feel as if they are right in and a part of the story. As Paul took me from adventure to adventure, problem to problem...I recognized exactly where we were at that moment in Cozumel. The story itself is a great mystery and a wonderful love story.
I am ordering his sequel, Whales’ Angels, today and looking forward to even more written by Paul Mila!
