Publisher's Summary

No one could believe the handsome young doctor might be a serial killer. Wherever he was hired - in Ohio, Illinois, New York, South Dakota - Michael Swango at first seemed the model physician. Then his patients began dying under suspicious circumstances. At once a gripping read and a hard-hitting look at the inner workings of the American medical system, Blind Eye describes a professional hierarchy in which doctors repeatedly accept the word of fellow physicians over that of nurses, hospital employees, and patients - even as horrible truths begin to emerge. With the prodigious investigative reporting that has defined his Pulitzer Prize-­winning career, James B. Stewart has tracked down survivors, relatives of victims, and shaken coworkers to unearth the evidence that may finally lead to Swango's conviction.
Combining meticulous research with spellbinding prose, Stewart has written a shocking chronicle of a psychopathic doctor and of the medical establishment that chose to turn a blind eye on his criminal activities.

Since I have to deal with physicians, credentialing and the process that might have caught up with Swango - it was interesting. BUT, it suffered in the abridgement.

very fascinating book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - this book is tells such an interesting story about how a serial killer got his start and how he was successful for a number of years. Would love an updated version that tells audiences how the story finally ends.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

It's amazing the number of times the guy was able to get a job without any kind of reference or back ground checks. That was the scariest part!

Any additional comments?

The only thing is that I didn't realize it was abridged. I don't know how much was left out from the original.

Blind Eye

Initially I was disappointed with the quality of this audiobook, but once having got used to that, the story itself is gripping, and shocking. Brace yourself for the initial few minutes of sound quality, and then sit back, listen, and be afraid....particularly if you are going into hospital any time soon!
