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.
