This book captures the stories of five doctors who have killed their patients, including, Harold Shipman, Marcel Petiot, Michael Swango, H.H. Holmes, and John Bodkin Adams. It is amazing that these people chose a profession to help save lives, but preferred to kill.
Is it not their job to curtail suffering and death? We sometimes put our lives in the hands of doctors, trusting that our best interests are the most important to them. Thankfully, there are only a handful of doctors who have been inclined to murder their patients, and they do not represent the millions of doctors who genuinely care and uphold their oath.

Sadly hard to cope listening to the reader

I found listening to this book intolerable. The woman who read this book often mispronounced words, coughs, stammers and leaves large gaps. She also sounds like she is in a tinny room without any proper equipment. I like these kind of books but this is so hard to listen to I had to give up.

I Thought Doctors Were Supposed To Be The Good Guy

A somewhat weird, creepy, disturbing and unusual collection of stories about doctors who killed.

These doctors became serial killers, mainly in their practices as they killed dozens and sometimes even more than 100 patients each that we are aware of.

There’s also a “special section” in the book about female doctors who did the same thing, just in case anyone out there is thinking this is a “guy thing”. (Smile)

The author goes into a great deal of detail about the typical characteristics and personalities of serial killers, and what makes them kill. That is very little comfort for anyone reading these stories, but it does help a little bit to understand to understand the basic profile of serial killers.

This book probably is not for the faint of heart, but it is interesting nonetheless.
