Publisher's Summary

The crime was unforgivable.

The suspected murderer-unbelievable.

One man's pursuit of justice - unstoppable.

The death of promising young pediatric AIDS researcher Eric Miller stunned the Raleigh, North Carolina, community, largely because of the horrific way he was killed. For months, Eric was slowly tortured as arsenic consumed his body. 

No one thought that Eric Miller's wife, Ann - an attractive, demure, educated scientist - could be capable of such a horrible crime. No one except for veteran homicide investigator Chris Morgan, a man in the twilight of his career. But from the moment Morgan saw the 30-year-old widow in the interview room at the police department, he knew he was seeing pure evil.

Now, journalist Amanda Lamb details Morgan's dogged investigation-a quest for the truth that would last four years and see another life taken before Ann Miller's tangled web of death and deceit finally came to light.

Contains mature themes.

Wow....Evil for the sake of being evil

Wonderfuy written and narrated, Deadly Dose is a tragic tale of a senseless murder perpetrated solely for the suffering it would bring.

Great True Crime

Well written, well performed. It grabs you from page one and really doesn't let up.

Sleepy narration

I just could not get through this book, tried several times it was like the woman reading was trying to keep her voice down, kind of a cross between at times muttering and a very quick gossip over lunch.
That probably doesn't make sense but there it is, I wish Kevin Pierce had done the narration.

Better than the movie

Grabbed this book knowing the story and wasn’t expecting much. Learned things I hadn’t heard before. Lost sleep because I was enjoying book so much. Definitely worth your time.

just awful

This reads like an idolatrous tribute to a horrible man. I'm not sure what the writer was thinking.

At one point, the writer says something to the effect of, "he convinced a witness to travel to North Carolina without using deceit." the next sentence states that he did this by threatening to tell the witness's co-workers about what happened if he didn't come to North Carolina. Yes, he threatened a witness, who was not involved in the crime. He promised to keep this man's involvement quiet if he came out to NC (for the narcissistic reason that he didn't want to fly on an airplane). He then said the man's name in court and blamed the witness saying that he should have known this would happen.

The investigator comes across as a self-involved man who excuses any bad behavior in the name of "justice."

Very frustrating and annoying read. If the story had focused on the case, instead of the investigator, it probably would have been interesting.
