HAZARDOUS MATERIAL

A FIREFIGHTER BATTLES MOTORCYCLE
GANGS AND PAINKILLER ADDICTION.

“If you are looking for a plain-vanilla picture of drug use and the biker world, then stick to TV dramas. If you want a true picture, read HAZARDOUS MATERIAL.  Kurt Kamm has conducted painstaking research to provide the reader with an inside look at the bikers, the meth, and the men and women in red hats and blue uniforms who have dedicated their lives to fighting the plague of violence and broken lives.”
—Steve Cook, Midwest Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Investigators Association

“Kamm has nailed the world of motorcycle meth–gang violence and given us a hero, battling his own demons and sliding into painkiller addiction. A real page-turner.”
—Mitchell S. Rosenthal, M.D., Founder, Phoenix House

One reviewer has said:

Kurt’s fourth book follows a distinctive and gripping line of action. Each of his books follows a specific type of firefighter (FF) and takes both the uninitiated and veteran FF on a detailed and believeable storyline.

While all FF are generally considered “heroes” for the risks they are willing to take to save others, each of Kurt’s characters demonstrate human failings and faults that help us relate closely to this special breed of human.

In One Foot in the Black the lead character comes from a broken home and severed relationship with his father who was also a FF but never showed any pride in Greg’s accomplishments.

Red Flag Warning has a lead character battling inner demons. In Code Blood, Colt becomes almost possessed in his search for the missing foot of a victim he tried to save. He finds himself way out beyond his responsibility as a fire/paramedic and nearly loses his life, and maybe even his soul, during his investigation.

Finally, Hazardous Material has a character hooked on pain medication because of a job-related injury. Something many FF can relate with as most have been injured at some point in their careers.

Each of Kurt’s books has something to draw the reader in. The opening scene of Hazardous Material took me by complete surprise when the identity of the victim is revealed (I chose not to say who even though other reviewers have already spilt the beans!) From that point on the reader is taken through a maze of twists and turns of adventurous thrills and spills. Read Kurt’s books and lose yourself in an adventure you have never experienced before.
