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.

No-one!

Would you ever listen to anything by RJ Parker again?

Yes

Terrible voice & made mistakes often

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

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!!!
