By Flight Risk (The Gypsy Moth) VINE VOICE on March 15, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is like an episode of THE FIRST 48 that spans years.

On an early Spring morning in 2005, a passing cruiser notices what he thinks is a brush fire in a remote area of Omaha. Fire trucks are dispatched, only to discover that the burning is much more gruesome than brush: three men, dead before the fire, with no ID on any of them.

Things shift gears, and Homicide is called in. A young detective, until recently on the drug squad, is early on the scene, and not long into his investigation of the case he makes a connection that leads to the triple murder being tied to a drug deal gone bad. Through a long, dogged pursuit of facts that leads the detectives involved as far afield as Phoenix, Arizona, Atlanta, Georgia, and into the toughest areas of Omaha, the book lays out procedures followed and evidence collected in a systematic, precise manner. The reader is sucked into the ugly netherworld of drugs and retribution and the sometimes maddeningly slow process in accumulating everything needed to bring the guilty to trial - and vindication for the victims.

Mr Bogdanoff - who effectively blows his cover name of Bo Harrison - brings us into his world with blunt directness, laying open the life of a police detective with sometimes wry humor (he'll travel anywhere and interview anyone if a Waffle House is in the neighbourhood) which has as much hurry-up-and-wait to it as Bullitt-style chases and French-Connection nabs. He relays stories of surveillance moments that makes the reader nervous, including an iffy moment with one of their suspects (and a cool moment of genius from his partner)that made me actually exhale when it was over.

Format: Paperback
In a world full of CSI, NCIS, and Law&Order (all good shows), people tend to start believing that that's the way things work. A crime occurs, and within days or a few weeks, the crime is solved, we know all the who's, why's, how's, where's and such, and the bad guy gets his comeuppance. That's not the way things work in the real world, and these shows take away from recognizing how much work it really takes to solve a crime and how important our law enforcement professionals really are. "Three Bodies Burning" really illustrates how much work goes into solving a complex homicide case, and Brian's clear and to the point style really keeps the pages turning. He takes you step by step through the process, adds just the right amount of explanation for non-law enforcement people (like myself), and just the right amount of detail. Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop, and even neglected my homework once or twice because I just had to know what happened next! And best of all, the good guys won and the bad guys got put where they belong. I highly recommend this book.

This book is so well written it reads like a John Grisham novel. I couldn't put it down. Fascinating insight into the world of those who fight crime and those who commit the crimes.

I initially bought this book on impulse for my father-in-law who is a retired Chief of Police. Living near Omaha, my curiosity was peaked and I added another for myself as well. My father-in-law read it within days of receiving it and told me numerous times how much he liked it. He was convinced that the author's attention to detail and organization was key in solving the case. I found myself, having no background in law enforcement, quite enthralled with the story. It read like a fictional crime novel, but left a lasting impression as only a true story can. The crime scene photos are graphic, but added a great element of reality, making this book a SUPERIOR READ.

I love it when I start reading a book and can't put it down! Everything else takes a back seat and this book definitely is that kind of cover to cover thriller. It helps that I live in Omaha and know the lay of the land, the local legal system and many of the characters as I figured out some of the players - - - and I have an interest in fire and arson investigations thanks to my son who is a Fire Marshall . . . but I kept thinking to myself as I read, how can such evil live right here in my beautiful City?? An amazing job of writing by a real local cop who succeeded in solving a nightmare of an investigation right in our own "back yard". A must read!

I've read a lot of crime novels (Lee Child, John Sandford, Lisa Scottoline, Karin Slaughter), but nothing fictional compares to the real deal. This detective/author tracked down cold-blooded killers. Nothing is made up. He didn't have to embellish a thing. This is a thrill ride.

I thought it would take me awhile to finish this book as I'm not an avid reader. I quickly found out this book was great and finished it in one day. I think Brian does a great job of keeping the reader's attention. Some books bounce around too much. Not in this case. I highly recommend this book to all.

Very easy and quiok reading. As the author shows charts connecting people involved in these murders, it is also very easy to follow. Fascinating.
