HE WAS KNOWN AS A GOOD-HEARTED FAMILY PHYSICIAN

Fifty-five-year-old Dr. Harold "Fred" Shipman had a noble dedication to his profession, winning the trust of his patients with an ingratiating charm and an old-school bedside manner. In fact, he even made house calls - but his unsuspecting patients had no idea of the evil that lurked behind the friendly facade of the kindly doctor...

BUT WHAT HORRIFIC CRIMES WAS THE GOOD DOCTOR COMMITTING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS?

After thirty years of practice, Dr. Shipman's true nature was finally exposed - that of a calculating killer who delivered his own prescription for death. Authorities eventually unearthed the shocking possibility that the fatherly physician had killed as many as 297 people. As body after body was exhumed from the local graveyard, the questions grew more disturbing. How could such a prolific killer remain undetected for so long? What motive drove this seemingly "good" doctor to his deadly obsession with murder? And just how many people did Harold Shipman kill? The search for answers would take investigators into the life of a man who forever changed the stereotype of the sweet country doctor...
