Learn more about Segura, Abby, and Occupational Hazards at Jonathan Segura's website and blog.

Among the praise for Occupational Hazards:
From Publishers Weekly deputy reviews editor Segura, a profane, grimly witty newsroom noir set on the mean streets of Omaha… smart, fast-paced, cleverly plotted and with a gritty and persuasive city setting—an auspicious debut.

[A] savagely funny first novel… The beauty of the novel is Segura’s ability to walk a line between the comedy and the horror.
—Patrick Anderson, Washington Post
