This book captures the stories of five doctors who have killed their patients, including, Harold Shipman, Marcel Petiot, Michael Swango, H.H. Holmes, and John Bodkin Adams. It is amazing that these people chose a profession to help save lives, but preferred to kill.
Is it not their job to curtail suffering and death? We sometimes put our lives in the hands of doctors, trusting that our best interests are the most important to them. Thankfully, there are only a handful of doctors who have been inclined to murder their patients, and they do not represent the millions of doctors who genuinely care and uphold their oath.
RJ Parker is the author of six Serial Killer books as well as Top Cases of The FBI. His Serial Killer Files Series include:

A somewhat weird, creepy, disturbing and unusual collection of stories about doctors who killed.
These doctors became serial killers, mainly in their practices as they killed dozens and sometimes even more than 100 patients each that we are aware of.
There’s also a “special section” in the book about female doctors who did the same thing, just in case anyone out there is thinking this is a “guy thing”. (Smile)
The author goes into a great deal of detail about the typical characteristics and personalities of serial killers, and what makes them kill. That is very little comfort for anyone reading these stories, but it does help a little bit to understand to understand the basic profile of serial killers.
This book probably is not for the faint of heart, but it is interesting nonetheless.
Terrible voice & made mistakes often
For someone facinated with serial killers, one could be forgiven for believing that this set of case studies are for you - they arent! Beth MacEwan's slow drawl and constant mistakes demonstrate the non-existant budget for the recording. Back ground noise can be clearly heard with the creaking of a chair and something that sounds remarkably like another person.Put this altogether and you have a waste of money and/or credit. I would suspect that RJ Parker would be very disappointed!!!
This book Sucked. The stories were bad and the narrator could not have been worse. Save your time and money.
