About this title


Serial Killer on Ward C

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 homicidal, narcissistic sociopath.

Lethal Cure

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. But 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.

From the Inside Flap:


At five p.m. on February 4, 1996, a Northampton, Massachusetts, Veterans Affairs Medical Center nursing assistant looked up and saw nurse Kristen Gilbert standing by the entrance to patient Angelo Vella's room.

Gilbert was drawing a syringe, but it was unclear what she was filling the syringe with, because it appeared as though she was trying to hide what she was doing.

After the syringe was full, Gilbert entered Vella's room.

Seconds later, Vella's heart monitor alarm went off.

"Ow, it hurts . . . it burns!" Vella yelled.

When the other nurses heard Vella scream, one raced into the veteran's room and rushed to his bedside, while the others in the vicinity looked on. Gilbert, frozen in her tracks, just stood there in some sort of daze.

Vella's heart rate began to race uncontrollably--as much as 300 beats per minute. But he remained conscious.

"Mr. Vella?" a nurse asked. "Mr. Vella?"

"She did it!" Vella lashed out, pointing at Gilbert. "It started when she flushed my line . . ."

A moment later there was a flatline . . . and then . . . Vella's pulse stopped.
