Congratulations to long-time HAPCOA member Maria del Carmen Irizarry-Rodriguez (retired Special Agent NCIS) on her just released novel entitled:  The Last Magical Year.

Maria and Gary Logan (retired NCIS) spent the past several year researching and writing their first suspense novel.    Maria provides the following synopsis:  "While our country is racing to break the Above-Top-Secret Japanese Navy Tactical Code, a dangerously handsome Hispanic-American naval officer’s involvement in a forbidden love affair with the young daughter of America’s most powerful, but bigoted, industrial baron, sets the young pilot on a path of destruction, culminating with the heart-pounding events surrounding our nation’s most crucial battle: the epic naval air encounter near Midway Island in the Pacific."  

The book is published through lulu.com, and is available in paperback and eBook format.
