This is more of a comment than a review but I had a hard time mustering sympathy for Kathy Augustine and there for, I felt on the wrong side of the book. I have read 50 plus true crime books and this is the first time I ever felt like this.

Good book about a nurse trying to out think the medical staff into heart attack. When it comes apparent of Succoloynie poison, he is arrested and tried. Thank God he won't see the light of day for many years.

The book was ok. I had noticed at the end that I was having a hard time keeping my focus. It was the court section. I must have had to re-read several times to remain interested.
