Blind eye : the terrifying story of a doctor who got away with murder by James B Stewart( Recording )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist James B. Stewart cracked the New York Times best-seller list with this riveting true crime book. Blind Eye is the shocking story of Michael Swango, a physician who may be the most prolific serial killer in American history. From the moment he began medical school, people thought Swango was peculiar. He seemed woefully incompetent in classwork, showed no empathy for patients, and was obsessed with violent death. When he interned at Ohio State, patients started dying mysteriously. Then, Swango was jailed for poisoning several co-workers. Incredibly, after his release from prison, he secured hospital positions in South Dakota and New York--and the body count continued to rise. Although suspected by the FBI of possibly 60 murders, Swango has never been convicted of anything worse than fraud. Stewart's remarkable reporting is a horrifying, yet fascinating and incredibly important look at flaws in the medical profession that possibly allowed dozens of murders to go unpunished. Richard Poe's narration captures the urgency of this book's alarming message
Blind eye : the terrifying story of a doctor who got away with murder by James B Stewart( Book )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young, blond, handsome Dr. Swango seemed a godsend wherever he was hired to practice medicine. But acclaim would turn to disbelief, dismay, then horror, as the evidence mounted that he could actually be murdering his patients. Then Dr. Michael Swango would leave that hospital, only to be rehired at another. Today the FBI believes that Swango may be the most prolific serial killer in American history. In Blind Eye, James Stewart takes readers into the closed world of America's medical establishment, where doctors repeatedly accept the word of fellow physicians over that of nurses, hospital workers and patient, even after the horrible truth emerges. With prodigious investigative reporting, Stewart's account moves from the hospital rooms of the prestigious Ohio State University Hospitals to Illinois, South Dakota, New York and finally to a remote missionary hospital in Zimbabwe. There Stewart tracked down survivors, relatives of victims, shaken hospital workers, and the evidence that may finally lead Swango to be charged with murder. Blind Eye shows us the danger we face in a hospital system that too often puts appearances, reputation and potential liability ahead of patients' welfare, and tells us what needs to be done to stop it

Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the biggest names on Wall Street -- Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine -- created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions, until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America's most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice.
