i loved the narrator. I think Will Collyer's performance was great. Hope he does more books.
When the police realize the hospitals have been hiding evidence from them.
I was really liked by the scene where the police show the evidence to his good friend. Her reaction of shock and pain as she grasped the truth was moving. I loved her bravery and courage to do the right thing.
In many ways this book was terrifying. I hope to never spend any time as a patient alone in a hospital. I want to have a very suspicious body guard with me at all times.
This book sort of reminded me of ZODIAC. It took so long for the police to figure out what was going on. Of course in this case, the various hospitals knew and hid the information about what this nurse was doing. A lot of people died who would not have if they had been honest.
I think I could listen again. Very intriguing book.
I don't know if I was on the edge of my seat, but wow this book pulled me in and kept me the whole time.
He was very good.
I know it may just be me, but I love a crime novel and add medical to it and I'm in heaven. This book was very interesting. You could tell that a ton of research went into it . I can't believe this was the first time I heard of this case. Great story. If you like medical true crime this is a book for you.
Listening about the sophisticated method involved in the killings.
I wish there were details about the killings. Instead, there was more focus on the killer's biographical background.
Sorry... but I should have listened to the sample before ordering this book. In my opinion, this is more like a school report than a good book
Well written book. Some long winded and frequently used analogies but sparing those it was a good book.
This book reads like a thriller. It reeled me in from page one and I found it hard stop listening. I've had many sleepless nights trying to keep my eyes (and ears) open for this incredible story. Horrific, amazing, scary, shocking....but an absolute must listen.
While reading the description of patients receiving care on the burn unit, I cringed but couldn't stop reading.
His voice was perfect for the "character" he portrays in this book. There were many times when I got so deep into the reading that I had to remind myself that the person reading wasn't the perpetrator.
A story of a relentless serial killer.
After reading past reviews I was worried I would be disappointed, but I'm glad I took the chance and used my credit. Yes, the narration is dry if not all out boring. Words are mispronounced etc. However, the story itself kept me listening. I could not get over how this killer could have been caught earlier but due to hospitals being more worried over lawsuits than patient's lives, he was passed on from hospital to hospital. It's sick how legal concerns are paramount to people within our hospitals. This story stands as an example.
Having been a Registered Nurse for the better part of 30 years, I was keenly interested in the subject matter of this book. I found the story to be terrifying not only from my perspective as a professional but as a patient. I don't want to say much more because I'd rather not spoil the story but I would recommend this book to everyone. The book is well written and the story so compelling that you will not want to put it down.
To be able to peer inside the mind of America's most pervasive serial killer is a rare and distinctly unique experience... I love psychology and especially criminal psychology.
No - but I enjoyed it immensely
This is the most disturbing book I have read in years...since Coma. This is a true crime story and I barely got thru the first couple of chapters because of the graphic details of a burn ward.
After finishing this book, I kept wondering about how many other nurses, aids and doctors are out there killing patients and when caught or suspected, receive walking papers with a good or neutral recommendation for their next job.
Charlie Cullen obsessed with killing himself with attention seeking suicide attempts found a way to satisfy his driving need for self harm by proxy. He killed patients with a roulette type system of infusing glucose bags with deadly doses of insulin. He also directly injected patients with a drug that makes the heart stop...for good. New Jersey Poison Control Center detectives are the people that cared enough to go after this man and stop him permanently. It is estimated that Charlie killed around 400 people (conservative number) during his career. Hospital administrators and their attorneys are responsible for Charlie's 16 year long career of killing people. He should have been stopped YEARS ago! I can't help but be cynical and paranoid when walking into a hospital now.
