Publisher's Summary

For months, Cathy Wood has fed the Alpine Manor residents, bathed them, and even moistened their eyes with artificial tears. To her, without their memories, the residents live in a state worse than death - and she has decided to relieve them of their pain. Wood and her lover, Gwen Graham, make a pact to kill those whom they were hired to care for. No one notices when an elderly person dies a quiet death, but as these two slip deeper into their plan, the terrible secret becomes unbearable. Lowell Cauffiel's account of the Alpine Manor murders is a chilling saga of true crime and the twisted lengths to which some will go in pursuit of justice.

    "Fantastic book,Great Narration"

    I read this book in the 90s,when I was still working in nursing homes and ALFs. I was as captivated by the story now as I was then. This is one of the best True Crime I've read over the last 30 or so years. I usually don't enjoy a book that delves so much into the criminals daily behavior.Preferring the investigation side of things. Having worked with some wonderful care givers, I'm upset none of them were depicted .I've also worked with many gay individuals who were heads above others in patient care. These crimes had nothing to do with a gay or lesbian lifestyle, but two sociopaths who unfortunately got together.The two main characters and their group dynamic are fascinating.

    "Good Story"

    A truly incredible story about 2 very messed up people. My sympathies are with the families.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No! Slow and repetitive story, boring narrator, never really goes anywhere.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    haven't gotten there yet and not sure I will...repetitive trial details have bogged me down.


    What didn’t you like about Pete Cross’s performance?

    boring, unexciting narrative


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no
