Paperback. Charles Cullen preferred working the hospital graveyard shift, safe from the prying eyes of those who might interfere with his mission of mercy or remember him afterwards. His spotless record, at times only registering his start and exit dates, failed to give any indication of the poisoning death of 30-40 patients that he would later admit to, and the full out investigation his confession would spark - requiring inquiries into more than 500 cases...one of the largest serial killer investigations in history. The warning signs were there, but ignored to the fatal sorrow of many, as his repeated suicide attempts and resulting commitments to psychiatric hospitals were still not enough to keep him away from the bedsides of the sick and vulnerable. There were whispered suspicions but the fear of a slander lawsuit kept Cullen's unstable behaviour from other potential employers, and kept him around to quietly administer lethal doses of poison to the loved ones left in his care. it wasn't until the murder of a priest that authorities discovered Charles Cullen's attempts at playing God. Their investigation turned up horrors, as bodies were exhumed and a serial killer was unmasked. Convinced he was easing the pain of others, an angel of death roamed loose down hallways meant for healing, fiendishly proud of his power over life itself. With Endnotes. 105pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
