MURDER BETWEEN THE PAGES DISCUSSES THE GOOD NURSE
Murder Between the Pages discusses The Good Nurse: A True Story of Medicine, Madness, and Murder by Charles Graeber.
An intimate -- and frightening -- glimpse inside the mind of America's most prolific serial killer, Charles Cullen, whose 16-year long "nursing" career left as many as 400 dead.
"A stunning book...that should and does bring to mind In Cold Blood....the story appeals to prurient interests, as does any graphic tale of true crime. But THE GOOD NURSE succeeds in being about much more than Mr. Cullen's murderous kinks. The causes of his pathology are not interesting. But the eagerness of ambitious hospital administrators to cover up his misdeeds is revelatory. And the police investigation that brought him down is a thriller in every sense of that word."-- Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Graeber doesn't pull punches... A deeply unsettling addition to the true crime genre."-- Publishers Weekly
