Art Cappabianca, a retired member of the US Navy and the New York Police Department, has completed his new book “The 7:30 Boat”: a thriller that draws on the author’s years as an intelligence specialist in the Navy, and as a sergeant/investigator with the NYPD.

“While our capabilities to address the threat of sea mines has improved, the mission of mine warfare is one of the most underfunded in the defense agenda,” the author explained when asked what inspired him to write this book. “If a dedicated terrorist group could obtain one or two of these weapons, the result could be staggering. Aside from a horrendous cost in life, mining our harbors could cripple the national economy. Imagine the ensuing chaos that would result from an unexpected mine detonation in one of our harbors.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Art Cappabianca’s novel focuses on characters from various walks of life—artists, drug dealers, police officers—throughout the five boroughs and while seemingly disparate, the strings of fate draws them closer together until their lives are all affected by the same event in some way.

While so much of the story takes place in the city, the major action happens in the waters of New York Harbor, where businessmen, mothers, children, and myriad individuals are riding the 7:30 Staten Island Ferry, “a floating town square where people meet to talk and sometimes plan their lives,” as the author describes it. This day, however, their plans are interrupted by terror lurking just below the water.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “The 7:30 Boat” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
