PAGING THROUGH HISTORY
The Good Nurse: A True Story of Medicine, Madness and Murder by Charles Graeber
After 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.
"As a fan of true crime, I find the darker side of humanity both interesting and terrifying. Like many Americans, I also trust health care professionals to guide me through challenging times and assist with complicated choices. But what happens when that trust is misplaced? In The Good Nurse author Charles Graeber delves into the life of Charlie Cullen, a celebrated caregiver who twisted himself into one of the most prolific killers in American history. " -- Kevin
