Brian Bogdanoff is one of the best detectives I have worked with in my 27-year career in law enforcement. His extensive experience in narcotics and homicide made him the ideal detective to work the "Three Bodies Burning" case. His ability to tell a story made him the perfect author to share this story. This page turner gives the reader an inside look at how an investigator brought the criminals responsible for this horrific crime to justice.

An unbelievable book. I've covered court cases and crime, and this is a true crime story you won't want to put down. Bogdanoff includes juice details -- and photos -- behind a crime that shook up our community. Three Bodies Burning allows readers the unique opportunity to jump inside the mind of an investigator who spent years fighting for justice.

It is a fascinating tale involving the perseverance of Bogdanoff along with all the other detectives, crime lab personnel, and DNA analysts to bring the guilty to justice. I thoroughly enjoyed every detail of this true story and found it impossible to put down!

Mr. Bogdanoff spoke at our book club, "The Professional Bookworms." We were so excited to have him come and speak, not only because he is a local author who has gained well-deserved recognition from this book, but he was very open and patient to answering all of our many questions about real-life crime and drama.
