Publisher Comments:

Over the course of eighteen years, Donald Harvey murdered at least fifty-nine people while working as a nursing assistant in Ohio and Kentucky hospitals. His crimes shocked the nation; even today, Harvey's name is invoked whenever those we trust in the medical system commit horrendous crimes. Now for the first time, Harvey's court-appointed defense attorney, William Whalen, and co-author Bruce Martin, reveal facts formerly protected by attorney-client privilege in Defending Donald Harvey. With Harvey's full cooperation, Whalen and Martin provide frightful insights into the mind of the cherub-faced killer. They detail his abused childhood; the confused search for identity that plunged him into Satanism and Nazism; the bizarre behavior reported by his coworkers but ignored by his employers; and of course his heartbreaking, brutal crimes. The book also includes an afterward by award-winning journalist Pat Minarcin, who broke the story that opened a Pandora's box of multiple killings.

Synopsis:

Donald Harvey killed at least 59 people while working in Ohio and Kentucky hospitals. In Defending Donald Harvey, Harvey's defense attorney finally delivers his perspective on these infamous, terrifying murders. How could it be that no one noticed Harvey was mentally ill? Why did her continue to obtain jobs at hospital after hospital despite his odd and suspicious behavior? Harvey performed occult ceremonies to select his victims using a skull stolen from the morgue. Nicknamed Angel of Death for his coincidental tendency to be nearby when a patient died, he killed wil impunity for 18 years until a chance observation during an autopsy revealed his hand in the death. With Harvey's cooperation, defense attorney Whalen and coauthor Bruce Martin reveal frightful insights into the mind of a serial killer. Whalen and Martin tell Harvey's story in a way that is respectful to his victims, yet delves humanely into Harvey's inner life. A chilling profile of a twisted mind.
