A very addicting read...I had a hard time putting it down! As a nurse myself, I am frightened by what a seemingly normal woman could do to her patients. This book is a well written and detailed account of the case of a nurse who poisoned and killed several patients at a VA hospital.
This was a really good book. It was hard to believe a Nurse could do the things she did for as long as she did and nothing was done to stop it!!
Well written true crime tale of a nurse that causes medical emergencies to show off for her security guard boyfriend that she is having an extra-marital affair with. And, oh yeah, she ends up committing murders of innocent veterans in the course of all this.
This is w/o a doubt one of the best True Crime books that i've read in awhile. Its one of those "you can't put down books". Very very well written and it was a fast read too! Although thicker than your average PP it is well worth having more pages to read. If you like True Crime, you'll love this. I'd give it 5 stars any day!
In Northampton, Massachusetts, at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Kristen Gilber was known as a hardworking, dedicated nurse - so why were her patients dying? So many emergencies and sudden deaths occurred while Kristen made her rounds on Ward C that her colleagues jokingly called her the "Angel of Death." Yet most people didn't suspect the horrifying truth behind the nickname: that Gilbert's polished facade concealed a scheming, manipulative liar and homicidal, narcissistic sociopath.
About a nurse named Kristen Gilbert who was known as the "Angel of Death". She is believed to be responsible for as many as 40 deaths between August 1995 and February 1996 at Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Northhampton, Massachusetts.
known as a hardworking dedicated nurse-so why were her patients dying?
Terrifying and gripping. An absorbing read.
Just don't like his writing--too long and too many details you just don't need makes for tedious and boring reading
Very good True Crime book -
found it to be a little dragged out!!
