Overview

A disabled veteran explodes into bloody pieces in the middle of Times Square. Days later, a second man blows himself up in Brooklyn.

Are these the first attacks in a wave of terrorism that could bring New York City to its knees? Or is there a psychotic murderer on the loose, executing a twisted plan for his own hidden motives?

Detective Manny Diaz--also a veteran, and the newest member of the NYPD Bomb Squad--doesn't yet know the answer. But he desperately wants to exonerate an honorable man who now lies dead.

In defiance of his fellow cops, Diaz sets out to develop an independent theory about what's really going on--even though pursuing this investigation will require pushing himself to the very limits of his own sanity.

Already burdened by his reputation for resisting authority, Diaz now must solve the crime with no support from his bosses, while convincing those same men that he hasn't gone crazy.

And Diaz has only hours to locate a maniacal bomb maker before many more New Yorkers die.

A real page turner!

A Danger to Himself and Others is the first book in an interesting new series about the NYPD bomb squad. It is fast-paced and kept me guessing and turning pages. Even when we knew more than the investigators, we still didn't know how things would turn out. This book gives an inside look at what goes through the heads of the guys going in and disarming bombs. I am looking forward to continuing the series.

I have discovered J. E. Fishman several years ago and I love his work. His new novel, A Danger to Himself and Others is a smart and dynamic read. You'll find yourself reading late into the night to find out what is coming next. I hope we will see much more from this author in the future.

Ok when can I get the next one? Seriously. Just finished "A Danger to Himself and Others" - I was not too sure I was going to like a police procedural of a bomb squad… I was afraid it would be too technical, or not suspenseful enough... so I was very glad to be pleasantly surprised with the book.   Manny, trying to come to terms with being back in civilian life, is a very likable tortured hero. Waiting for the next one…. Tick… Tick… Tick.
