In 1995 nurses at the VA hospital in Northampton, Massachusetts, began noticing an unusually high percentage of cardiac deaths and observed that nurse Kristen Gilbert was almost always present when a patient "coded." Three of her colleagues reported their suspicions that Kristen, the "Angel of Death," was using epinephrine to induce fatal heart attacks. J. Charles's personable, intelligent narration provides this true crime with an immediacy that keeps listeners engaged. Phelps's account of Gilbert's homicidal rampage is based on 10,000 pages of trial transcripts, affidavits, court records, videos, and interviews with principal witnesses. Charles's precise reading takes listeners into Gilbert's paranoia, as well as her trial and eventual life sentence, but doesn't speculate on the causes of her murderous activities, which may have resulted in as many as 40 deaths.
