Overview

Over the course of eighteen years, Donald Harvey murdered at least fifty-nine people while working as a nursing assistant in Ohio and Kentucky hospitals. His crimes shocked the nation; even today, Harvey's name is invoked whenever those we trust in the medical system commit horrendous crimes. Now for the first time, Harvey's court-appointed defense attorney, William Whalen, and co-author Bruce Martin, reveal facts formerly protected by attorney-client privilege in Defending Donald Harvey. With Harvey's full cooperation, Whalen and Martin provide frightful insights into the mind of the cherub-faced killer. They detail his abused childhood; the confused search for identity that plunged him into Satanism and Nazism; the bizarre behavior reported by his coworkers but ignored by his employers; and of course his heartbreaking, brutal crimes. The book also includes an afterward by award-winning journalist Pat Minarcin, who broke the story that opened a Pandora's box of multiple killings.
