Publisher's Summary

Gosnell is the untold story of America's most prolific serial killer. In 2013, Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of killing four people, including three babies, but is thought to have killed hundreds, perhaps thousands more in a 30-year killing spree. ABC News correspondent Terry Moran described Gosnell as "America's most prolific serial killer". Gosnell is currently serving three life sentences (without the possibility of parole) for murdering babies and patients at his "House of Horrors" abortion clinic.
This book - and now a major movie starring Dean Cain (Lois & Clarke) - reveals how the investigation that brought Gosnell to justice started as a routine drugs investigation and turned into a shocking unmasking of America's biggest serial killer. It details how compliant politicians and bureaucrats allowed Dr. Gosnell to carry out his grisly trade because they didn't want to be accused of "attacking abortion". Gosnell also exposes the media cover-up that saw reporters refusing to cover a story that shone an unwelcome spotlight on abortion in America in the 21st century. Gosnell is an astounding piece of investigative journalism revealing a cover-up among the medical political and media establishments that allowed a killer to go undetected for decades.

A story worth telling

For some time I have searched the web for info on this case. Most articles I have found repeat the same few facts about the case. It was not enough for me. This book contains all of the details I have found and much more.

"A small town crime story" says a member of the media. This makes it sound common place. Maybe it meant the lives and demise of these victims were unremarkable. I surely hope not. If this can be wrote off as "a small town crime story" I worry about what else is deemed unworthy of national news attention. Some say public attention or what they believe wil grab the public's attention is what detremines what becomes national news. I hope this book becomes a best seller so the media recalculates what matters.

It was the uncomfortable silence surrounding the case and that the victims deserved to have their stories heard that has kept me searching for more information until now.

Powerful and sad

The tale of Kermit Gosnell is not unique. Those of us that have followed issues of human dignity and value human life know there are many other Kermit Gosnells out there. But for brining this story to light, I am eternally grateful to Ann and Phelim.
I have not read a story about a serial killer before. I thought, how could you write 11 hours worth of material. But the story here is complete and answers so many questions from so many angles I realized something - thank God I didn't have to filter through the countless hours of information that Ann and Phelim had to to produce such a clear and concise presentation.
I am hopeful that he associates movie will be well received. And I am hopeful that shedding light on these dark subjects will bring this nation to repentance over the horror of abortion. Let
