Paperback. In Northampton, Massachusetts, at the Veterans Affairs Medical Centre, Kristen Gilbert 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. From August 1995 through February 1996, Gilbert dealt out wholesale death. Her victims were helpless patients who trusted her as a caregiver, only to learn too late that she was a killer, her weapon a drug capable of causing fatal heart attacks. But she got away with murder until 3 of her fellow nurses could no longer ignore the proliferation of deadly "coincidences" on Gilbert's watch. Investigators believe Kristen Gilbert may have been responsible for as many as 40 deaths. Eventually in March 2001, after being found guilty of 4 counts of murder and 2 counts of attempted murder, Angel of Death Kristen Gilbert was sentenced to life imprisonment. With 16pp. of photographs. 474pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
