Publisher's Summary

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.
RJ Parker is the author of six Serial Killer books as well as Top Cases of The FBI. His Serial Killer Files Series include:

Women Who Kill
Unsolved Serial Killings
Case Closed: Serial Killers Captured
The Serial Killer Compendium
Doctors Who Killed
No Killing in The Hallways (Shoot Shootings)

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.

Where does Doctors Who Killed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Another very interesting non fiction that exposed something most people would not generally have knowledge of

Who was your favorite character and why?


Have you listened to any of Beth MacEwan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have not as yet

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

In parts it was disturbing

Any additional comments?
