THE ANGEL MAKERS Arsenic, a Midwife, and Modern History's Most Astonishing Murder Ring

by | Read by Gabra Zackman

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Gabra Zackman artfully narrates this incredible true-crime story from Hungary in the 1920s. Zackman balances the historical details with the medical ones in recounting how a rural midwife started a killing spree that was carried out by women of all ages who poisoned people with arsenic. Zackman makes this interesting story even more intriguing by telling it in a conversational tone that fans of true-crime podcasts will recognize. She makes the most of the infamous "Aunty Suzy," the ringleader in this macabre tale. Listeners will be hanging on every word as they hear of the near domino effect the use of arsenic had on the women in Aunty Suzy's sphere. For fans of true crime, this is a treat of a listening experience. M.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
