Forget traditional vampire and slasher books; this is the real horror Story. A medical thriller from Pulitzer Prize–winning author James B. Stewart about serial killer doctor Michael Swango and the medical community that chose to turn a blind eye on his criminal activities.

It is estimated that he killed as many as 60 patients/colleagues with poison. This trend followed him into his residency and the medical schools involved turned a blind eye to what was happening. Stewart's reference to a primary work, David Abrahamsen's Confessions of Son of Sam (New York, Columbia University Press, 1985), is "as quoted in" another work, a sloppy technique not allowed in high school. Boyd Gaines is superb as narrator, taking the listener through all the facts, events and detective work that Stewart compiled.

Best-selling author Stewart (Den of Thieves, 1991, etc.) But even though he expounded upon his obsessions with violent death and serial killings to anybody within earshot, almost nobody connected him to the string of deaths among patients under his care.

Gives some good insight on the healthcare system and how we check ourselves. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. Refresh and try again.

Nonetheless the actual tale of this true occurrence is as the title states terrifying. Terrifying! 27+ years in medicine and I have never joined the AMA, in part because of their opposition to more effective oversight.

When Swango's reputation in the U.S. was finally scorched, he went on to practice his mayhem in Africa, before returning home to face incarceration. Fascinating.

How was he able to continue to work in these institutions even after he was convicted of poisoning some of his colleagues?

He was able to poison people and get away from it.

The shocking story of Dr. Michael Swango, who, despite being a convicted felon suspected of murdering dozens of his patients, was allowed to practice medicine. As more patients died, Ohio State initiated an in-house investigation, led by a fellow doctor, that fully exonerated Swango. Mind boggling how this one physician could pursue such a deviant path towards patient care with behavior and actions to cause harm, to the extent of death in his associates, friends and patients.

Author and Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart puts together the story of Dr. Michael Swango, an attractive, pleasant and intelligent physician, who in reality is a serial killer. Boyd Gaines does a fine job narrating, but sometimes his characterizations are distracting, especially when he reads the report of the psychiatrist whom Stewart questioned. Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2018.

The facts are these: Swango came from an unloving home dominated by a tyrannical, cruel, and often absent father and a loving but inadequate and frustrated mother. I went to college with the subject of this book, Michael Swango at Quincy University. Fascinating story about an oddball misfit who somehow got into medical school, remained weird and aloof, began killing patients in ways that allowed him to be there pronouncing time of death, but just kept getting away with it.
