9781906476649: Killer Doctors: The Ulitimate Betrayal of Trust

Dr Harold Shipman may have been the most notorious of his ilk, but he was not alone. Despite the high regard in which they are held by society, doctors are driven by the same desires and needs as any other human being. And they are also susceptible to those demons that make murderers of some of us. But amongst this murderous cabal, there is one thing they all have in common ...an utter contempt for human life. In this well-researched insight into what society regards as one of the ultimate betrayals of trust, Kenny Gibson details 17 cases from around the world that betray differing motives and modus operandi. Among the doctors he covers are a dictator, a revolutionary and other assorted rogues from all walks of life. They include some famous names to UK readers such as Buck Ruxton, Crippen and Shipman and some not so familiar like Levi Weil and Marcel Petoit. Their need to kill and have power over one's patients engenders a fear in us that other doctors, even the innocuous GP, could commit the ultimate betrayal of trust. Who knows, perhaps there are others already out there, waiting for the right moment to start their spree and satiate their darkest needs?
