About this title


Though doctors struggle to save them, babies are dying in the pediatric ward of a Texas hospital. A secret internal investigation reveals the sickening explanation: Genene Jones, a nurse on the 3-11 shift, is a cold-blooded kille r. This true-life thriller reveals how Jones was able to work again--and kill again.

From Library Journal:

Murder, madness, and medicine are the themes of this book. Murder and madness describe Genene Jones, the subject of the book. Jones was first a nurse in a San Antonio public hospital, then in a private clinic, and worked exclusively with pediatric intensive care cases. Children mysteriously would go into cardiac arrest during Jones's shift. As many as 13 children may have died as a result of Jones's actions. The medical community, fearful of bad publicity and lawsuits, did nothing but release Jones with a good recommendation, after "upgrading the ICU staff." Elkind, a reporter for Texas Monthly , has done a superb job of investigative reporting, delving into Jones's background to make sense of her madness and also to understand the medical community's role. Recommended.
