Beginning in the 1940s, New York was for 16 years at the mercy of a man who planted explosives in phone booths and even movie theater seats, targeting such venues as Grand Central, Penn Station, and Radio City Music Hall. He signed his letters "FP" although the press dubbed him "the Mad Bomber"; but how could he be found among the millions of inhabitants of the city? In this gripping true tale, Police Captain Howard Finney joins forces with little-known psychiatrist, Dr. James Brussel and publisher Seymour Berkson, and their uncanny ability to deduce the criminal's personality from the available evidence would make a major contribution to the fledgling science of criminal profiling.
