About this title

Synopsis:

This is for my colleagues the detectives, special agents, and arson investigators worldwide who work every day to identify, track down, arrest, and convict those most cowardly, sick, and devious of all criminals. It is an extraordinarily difficult task that on a daily basis is fraught with pitfalls and rife with myths and misconceptions. It is doggedly carried out by men and women who are routinely assailed by critics, stymied by bureaucrats, second-guessed by chair-warming administrators, avoided by many prosecutors, and eviscerated by defense attorneys, learned psychologists, and other hired guns. If it was easy, anybody could do it. It's not, and they can't. -Ed Nordskog, Detective, 2011

He has testified in court as a recognized expert in this field on over fifty-five occasions. He has been consulted by prosecuting attorneys on death penalty cases involving arson and murder on three occasions. He has been personally involved in over twenty serial arson investigations. The author has a master's degree in emergency services management and is certified as a fire investigator by the California State Fire Marshal and the California Conference of Arson Investigators. He is a graduate of the National Fire Academy Arson Investigation Course, the ATF Advanced Arson Investigation Course, the Forensic Fire Death Investigation Course, and numerous other arson investigation courses.
