For almost two decades, no place was safe from the man who signed his anonymous letters “FP” and left his lethal devices in phone booths, storage lockers, even tucked into the plush seats of movie theaters. In desperation, Police Captain Howard Finney sought the help of a little known psychiatrist, Dr. James Brussel, whose expertise was the criminal mind. He compiled a portrait of the suspect down to the cut of his jacket. Seymour Berkson --- a handsome New York socialite, protégé of William Randolph Hearst, and publisher of the tabloid The Journal-American --- joined in pursuit of the Mad Bomber. The three men hatched a brilliant scheme to catch him at his own game. Together, they would capture a monster and change the face of American law enforcement.
