Between 1940 and 1957, 33 bombs--strategically placed in Grand Central, Penn Station, Radio City Music Hall, Macy''s and other populous areas of New York--paralyzed the city, sending shockwaves of fear through an unsuspecting public.
George Metesky, the "Mad Bomber," unleashed a reign of terror that reverberated through America''s social, legal, and political landscape, ultimately spurring the birth of modern criminal profiling when a crime psychiatrist was called in to assist in the manhunt. Compelling historical true crime, "The Mad Bomber of New York" is the gripping tale of two individuals engaged in a deadly game of hide-and-seek, with the city of New York caught in the crosshairs.
For 16 years the "Mad Bomber" terrorized Manhattan by placing bombs in theater seats, telephone booths, and public bathrooms in venues like Grand Central Terminal, Penn Station, and Radio City Music Hall between 1940 and 1956. Twenty-two out of thirty-three bombs exploded with only eight injuries and no deaths. The media circus kept the city frightened and the case itself had two major reverberations felt to this day. The primary early foray of criminal profiling proved eerily accurate and bomber George Metesky affected later treatment of the criminally insane with a stream of letters from his cell.
