Not only was this book a great read, it also displays the significant truth about the world of medicine. This type of behavior (ignoring what's in front of you) happens everyday in medicine. All credentialing personnel should be required to read this book.
Hard to believe that a doctor could get by with murder the way Swango did. Hospitals and other doctors wouldn't believe that another doctor could be killing patients. They would cover the suspicions up and then Swango was free to go to another hospital and kill again.
