Overview

Newlyweds Terry Hunter and 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. 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.

Reviews for Whales' Angels:

"In this sequel to Dangerous Waters, Paul Mila has crafted another exciting adventure-mystery featuring Terry Hunter and Joe Manetta. Like Tony Hillerman, 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.

Whales' Angels
"A solid plot, intriguing characters and a realistic depiction of scuba diving and marine creatures are the hallmarks of Paul Mila's second novel featuring Terry Hunter and Joe Manetta. This time out, Joe and Terry get involved with activists ("Angels") attempting to prevent a rogue sea captain from harpooning of whales in the chilly waters off Iceland. Trying to save a whale, one of the Angels ends up dead - but was it really an accident? The resolution of the mystery will keep readers -divers and non divers alike - on the edge of their seats."
Bonnie J. Cardone, former editor of Skin Diver Magazine,

author of Shipwrecks of Southern California and Fireside Diver, and member of the Women Divers' Hall of Fame.
