The Good Nurse: a True Story of Medicine, Madness, and Murder by Charles GraeberAfter his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed "The Angel of Death" by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history. An incredibly vivid portrait of madness and a penetrating look inside America's medical system.Join us for a discussion of this engrossing book. No registration is required and all are welcome!
