What drove Harold Shipman to murder over 200 of his elderly patients? Why did Beverly Allitt kill the babies in her care? This book examines the formative influences and careers of British, American and European doctors, nurses, dentists and paramedics.
Going beyond the usual killers-on-the-ward compendiums, Davis examines surgeons who killed their wives, dentists and doctors who murdered their children for profit and paper mask doctors guilty of gross malpractice.
It features up to date information on landmark cases and includes unique interviews with psychologists and journalists with in-depth knowledge of the cases.
'These accounts are a salutary reminder of the real life horror of murder - the ruthless self-centredness of the killers and the destruction wrought by their actions.'Mystery Women
