What does being a firefighter, drugs and biker gangs have to do with one another?  They have to do with the latest release by firefighter mystery author, Kurt Kamm’s newest book called, Hazardous Material.

This is his fourth book in a series and I can reassure you, this book is the best yet and will get you hooked in no time.  The only therapy available is to read the book from cover to cover and you will see why Kurt Kamm is an award-winning author for his many books.

Hazardous Material describes relationships between the characters and how it relates to real life situations.  I would imagine some have even experienced some of these  and can easily follow along.  What pulls you in is the ill affects of drug abuse, the not so sugar coated reality of how tough life really is and how relationships can be affected.

As always, Kurt Kamm, always seems to bring his books to life and this one definitely pulls you in, just as if you are standing in the character’s shoes.  Great research and a terrific writer go hand in hand to equal an award-winning book.

Check it out today!  Hazardous Material released on May 1, 2013, is published by MCM Publishing, a division of Monkey C. Media and can be purchased through the author’s website:  www.kurtkamm.com

About the Author:

Malibu resident Kurt Kamm has used his contact with CalFire, Los Angeles County Fire Department, Ventura County Fire Department and the ATF, as well as his experience in several devastating local wildfires, to write fact-based firefighter mystery novels. He has attended classes at El Camino Fire Academy and trained in wildland firefighting, arson investigation and hazardous materials response.  He is currently riding with Los Angeles County Fire Department’s famed urban search and rescue task force. He is a graduate of the ATF Citizen’s Academy

One of the Malibu fires, the 60 mile-per-hour Santa Ana wind-driven Canyon Fire, burned to his front door and destroyed the homes of several neighbors. Kamm said the lessons he learned from the County Fire Department while writing his books helped him save his home.

Kurt Kamm has built an avid fan base among first responders. Each of his firefighter mysteries features a firefighter in a particular discipline (wildland, arson investigation, paramedic, hazardous material response, and search and rescue).  His first novel, One Foot in the Black (2008) has become a favorite of firefighters. 

Subsequent novels, Red Flag Warning: A Serial Arson Mystery (Aberdeen Bay, 2010) and Code Blood (MCM Publishing, 2012) have won numerous fiction awards (see attached summary). Kamm’s latest book, Hazardous Material, will be released in 2013.  He is currently attending search & rescue training and working on his fifth novel.
