"[Graeber] imbues the story with an intense level of anticipation, with one question constantly in the background: Who will stop this man and when? A thrilling and suspenseful page-turner that is sure to be loved by the majority of readers, who will be both horrified and fascinated."-- "Kirkus Reviews" "Graeber doesn't pull punches... A deeply unsettling addition to the true crime genre."-- "Publishers Weekly" "A stunning book...that should and does bring to mind "In Cold Blood"....the story appeals to prurient interests, as does any graphic tale of true crime. But THE GOOD NURSE succeeds in being about much more than Mr. Cullen's murderous kinks. The causes of his pathology are not interesting. But the eagerness of ambitious hospital administrators to cover up his misdeeds is revelatory. And the police investigation that brought him down is a thriller in every sense of that word."-- "New York Times" "Janet Maslin " "The most terrifying book published this year. It is also one of the most thoughtful.... From a long series of conversations with Cullen, the detectives who solved the case and Amy, a nurse who once was Cullen's best friend and eventually got him to confess, among many other sources, Graeber has crafted a book that is a revelation. THE GOOD NURSE is gripping, sad, suspenseful, rhythmic and beautifully documented (the endnotes to this book are impressive)."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
