Nightmare in Aurora by William Pfirrman 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. I have written the book in the first person so the reader will feel as though they are sitting across from Charley, the main character, as he takes you along as he describes his life from his earliest memories. As your reading his story, he tells of the traumas he experienced, the battles he was forced to fight growing up, and how he learned to overcome powers much stronger than his own, right up to the moment he relates the horrors he experienced in May of 1973 and the several months following. This, I believe, will allow the reader to experience with Charley everything he had to endure, during this five month long nightmare, as though they were.


I received this book in an e-book, from the author William Pfirrmam. The events he writes about actually happen as he has taken from police reports. He of course has changed the names of the characters and has written the story in first person so we the readers get the full effect of the story. That really works for me and the story. After he brings you up to how they end up in Aurora. He starts the chain of events that lead to a night of near death and three days in jail. Each day being question and not in the most pleasant way, but always sticking to the same story. Finally the lead detective had to look in a different direction. This lead to his release but also to a whole another set of problems. To where he finally had to leave the Air Force and had to leave Colorado. The whole night in question that started everything could have been avoided if police reports would have been filed on time. This is just one thing. I don’t want to give a way to much. Mr. Pfirrman, though makes this a great read, very exciting. I did not stop once the action part started going until I finished. I enjoy books like that.
