Nightmare in Aurora is a fictionalized tale, based on an actual horrific and nearly deadly event and the people, who were involved, whether willingly or by sheer chance, do actually exist. From the main character, Charley and his roommate, Tom, to the lead detectives charged with seeking the truth in this tale of lies and deceit, to the crime scene investigators and the witnesses, they are all actual persons and all played a role in the search for the truth and justice. In every case, I have changed the names of those depicted here. However, the book contains many of the actual police reports written by the different police officers involved in all aspects of the investigation. Reports filed by the lead detectives in the case, by crime scene investigators, uniformed officers that had responded to calls for help from one of their own, as well as from Charley and his roommate Tom, who at first believed to be suspects, were actually victims. Also included are the reports filed by the trigger-happy, newly promoted, deceitful detective responsible for this event in its entirety. Even the statements collected from witnesses to the carnage described are included and told in their own words. However, in an attempt to allow the reader to see and understand the entire story as it unfolded, some of the content had to be dramatized.

Mr. Pfirman’s book is an excellent first-person account of a time when his entire world turned upside down 40 years ago.  His book is hard to put down as every page leaves the reader wanting to know more about what happens next.  Full of life changing events, corruption and betrayal with carefully interwoven teasers of what is to come I highly recommend “Nightmare in Aurora” for any lover of true crime.
