BOOK TOUR and SIGNED BOOK GIVEAWAY - Hazardous Material by Kurt Kamm

Bucky Dawson is a HazMat specialist with Los Angeles County Fire Department HazMat Task Force 103. His station is in Lancaster, CA--an area populated with meth labs and outlaw motorcycle gangs, as well as Edwards AFB, NASA, and top-secret aerospace facilities.

Bucky--divorced and lonely--struggles with painkiller addiction. One night Task Force 103 is toned out to support a Sheriff's raid on a meth lab. Bucky thinks he sees his sister at the door of a double- wide trailer in the Mojave Desert just before it explodes.

Bucky's life is in chaos. While he searches for answers to his sister's death, he is drawn into a conflict with the Vagos, who are selling drugs in the Mojave Desert. After a confrontation in which the Vagos nearly kill him, Bucky exacts an unusual revenge that only a HazMat firefighter could accomplish.

The novel twists and turns, bringing together firefighters, a sinister aerospace engineer, the Vagos -- led by the Dwarf, their seven foot tall Sergeant at Arms, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in a surprise ending you will not anticipate but you will certainly enjoy.

“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

"For action thrillers based on facts and real people within our community few writers can outdo Kurt Kamm. His new novels (and it is now certain they will keep coming!) just get better and better. This man writes with a razor instead of a pen, but then of course his close connection to the realm of firefighting on every level reassures the reader that he is not just `creating’ dramas." - Grady Harp

"Wow, this book takes you into an area most of us don't know much about - biker gangs, drugs, toxic waste and the dedicated fire fighters and law enforcement trying to contain it. The mystery moves right along and doesn't give the reader many opportunities for their mind to wonder. This book is a real page-turner. It is both entertaining and educational. Kamm did his research well to provide us with an inside look into this dark world. His writing style makes you feel that you are right there part of the action." -

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.
