Overview

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.

"Doctors Who Killed by R.J. Parker is a comprehensive, detailed dossier of the vile and malicious nature of a small percentage of the medical profession who has killed, intentionally. The pictures and layout make this book a treat. You can relate the info and place it to a face. Also, the author's genuine take on the acts, bring a human feeling to the psychological acts behind the murderer's hiding behind a medical uniform."

    Powerful true story that is eye opening and sad. Yet, with all the depth of emotion and loss, this is surely one of books that one must read when facing issues of medical care. It's sad to learn from another persons loss, yet this book brings to light significant issues, but from the medical end and the legal arena that an educated person should know. Riveting on one hand and true on the other.

    R.J.Parker has written this outstanding, emotional, and true stories of doctors. Be sure you know who you are going to!

     The author gives a look into the mind of someone who has sworn to heal and protect the sick but soes the opposite. The serial killer profile break down was a nice touch.
