In Northampton, Massachusetts, at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Kristen Gilbert was known as a hardworking, dedicated nurse - so why were her patients dying?

So many emergencies and sudden deaths occurred while Kristen made her rounds on Ward C that her colleagues jokingly called her the Angel of Death. Yet most people didn't suspect the horrifying truth behind the nickname: that Gilbert's polished façade concealed a scheming, manipulative liar and a homicidal, narcissistic sociopath.

From August 1995 through February 1996, Gilbert dealt out wholesale death. Her victims were helpless patients who trusted her as a caregiver, only to learn too late that she was a killer, her weapon a drug capable of causing fatal heart attacks.

She got away with murder until three of her fellow nurses could no longer ignore the proliferation of deadly coincidences on Gilbert's watch. Investigators believe Kristen Gilbert may have been responsible for as many as 40 deaths. As the law closed in, she struck back, faking suicide attempts, harassing witnesses, stalking her ex-boyfriend, and terrorizing the hospital with bomb threats.

In March 2001, after being found guilty of four counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder, Angel of Death Kristen Gilbert was sentenced to life imprisonment. Download and start listening now!

    " Fascinating true-crime story of an "Angel of Death." Making it even more interesting to me, this happened in my area and I have even met one of the people involved in this tragic story. "

    " a book written like the author had a grudge against Kristen Gilbert. There is still a great deal of doubt about who did what at the VA hospital "

    " Perfect Poison is a true- crime story about the life and work of serial killer nurse Kristen Gilbert, her road to madness, and detailed facts about the lives she took while working at an east coast VA hospital. Well written, interesting, and a fast, easy read. "
