    After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed "The Angel of Death" by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history.

    Story

    I agree, as a RN there are many small errors not only made by the narrator, but the author as well. Don't let that stop you. This is based on a true story, scary as that seems. The narrator's voice wasn't the issue for me, and I'm glad I went through with the purchase. This story will shock you at "the system" the hospitals used to cover their selves. The author did a great job with the psychological issues the nurse is having....denial or pure arrogance?

    Another book read in 2 days
    Enjoy!

    Story

    Listened to this moving story in one listen. I was reluctant to use my credit for this, as I prefer the mystery/thriller genre. Boy, I'm glad I went ahead with it! I won't spoil it, but there are two women, so different in appearance yet with such similar experiences. Don't disregard this amazing journey full of life, experience, and love. The narrators nailed it!!

    “I didn’t do it!” is something cops hear all the time. But when the plea comes from a close friend who’s fallen on hard times, it’s tougher to ignore, especially for young Officer Danny Boyle. It’s the start of another action-packed summer for the wisecracking Boyle and straight-arrow cop (now chief of detectives) John Ceepak down the Jersey Shore as they do their best to help Danny’s friend, a young nurse who claims she has been falsely accused of aggravated assault by a prestigious Sea Haven doctor.

    Story

    Danny and John Ceepak make a great team. "Sunny, Funderful Sea Haven" is a town full of adventure. The chemistry between the two lead characters makes the series. Truly a fun mystery, with Jeff Woodman returning as the narrator in the 8th book of the series. I know you will enjoy it!!! I would start at the beginning, you will appreciate John's character so mch more.

    In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery - as three people, with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stand between a madman and his next crime.

    Love the books, great series.....but I was disappointed to listen to Broken before Undone. Read/listen to Undone first. Broken happens after the Undone novel. After reading Triptych and Fractured, I was excited to start Broken. Right from the beginning, I felt like I missed a book. I went back to the series list, just to make sure I downloaded the right book. Audible, please fix. Triptych, Fractured, Undone, Broken. Starting Criminal now.

    Meet Claire Waters, a young, dedicated forensic psychiatrist with unnervingly personal insights into the criminal mind. Haunted by a disturbing childhood incident - and driven by her demons - Claire has always been drawn to those rare “untreatable” patients who seem to have no conscience or fear. She has a natural ability to put people at ease, to help them face their darkest secrets.

    This book kept my attention and had so much potential. But, come on!!! Claire found a needle in a hay stack at least 3 times. No joke. She could of been a psychic. The middle was good, but the end just dragged. Just an ok kind of book.
