'Nurse' as defined by Webster is one who cares for the infirm, one who attempts to cure and alleviate suffering. Forget our traditional view of a nurse when you open the pages of 'Death Angel,' a grim, cold-chill true story of serial killer, Charles Cullen. Penned by writer Clifford L. Linedecker and Zach T. Martin, the son of Cullen's first known victim, 'Death Angel' is a shocking chronology of lives lost and an intimate portrait of a psychopathic murderer who confessed to killing some 40 hospital patients between 1988 and 2003. Night time was Cullen's time. He requested after daylight hours assignments to ICU wards in Pennsylvania and New Jersey hospitals where he used the skills he had learned not to heal but to kill. He chose his victims at random, deciding who would live and who would die. After he was apprehended Cullen insisted that he hadn't wanted people to see him as he was, as who he was, Detective Sergeant Braun asked, ' Who are you, Charles?' 'A man, person, who was trusted and had responsibility for a lot of people dying,' was the answer. '......I had no right to do this. I had no right! I just couldn't stop! I couldn't stop it!' What could be more frightening than a man who repeatedly commits such heinous crimes, knows full well what he is doing, but cannot stop? From pictures included, Cullen is slim, a man with pleasant features. He doesn't at all appear to be the monster many claimed he was, yet his acts indicate he was less than human. What could possibly have compelled anyone to kill and kill again and again the most helpless of victims? Unfortunately, there is not an ending to this story. As late as June, 2005 Cullen's guilty pleas for five murders were accepted. And the victims families continue to plead for legislation to prevent rogue healthcare workers from moving from job to job as Cullen did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
