hazardous materials by kurt kammHazardous Materials is a brand new firefighter based mystery novel by Kurt Kamm. Kurt is amazing at both his character development and his keen eye for detail relating to the fire/EMS service through extensive research in the field.

Hazardous Materials delves into the world of Bucky Dawson, a member of the Fire Department’s Hazardous Materials Team, a biker gang, the meth drug trade, and those battling the drug trade. Bucky seeks to find answers about his family, more importantly his sisters death. Bucky also battles his own demons with drug addiction.

Much like Code Blood, this book is very dark.

Firefighters will be able to relate to the details of Bucky’s job, as well as the incidents he is involved in. The magic is in the details. Firefighters will also be able to relate to some of the demons that Bucky is plagued by, the family dynamics, and the overall subject matter involved.

This action filled book is filled with suspense that will keep you reading until the end. The details make it easy to get lost in the storyline and find yourself feeling as though you are right there in the book as it happens.

Much like other books by Kamm, I recommend this if you enjoy reading books about the fire service and suspense.

Kurt Kamm

Malibu resident Kurt Kamm has used his access to Los Angeles County and Los Angeles City firefighters and his experience in several devastating local wildfires to write his novels. He has also attended classes at El Camino Fire Academy and training sessions in arson investigation and hazardous materials response.

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. Mr. Kamm said the lessons he learned from L.A. County Fire Department while writing his books helped him save his home.

Kurt lives with his wife and three dogs. He was previously a financial executive and semi- professional bicycle racer. He was Chairman of the UCLA/Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center Foundation and is an avid supporter of the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
