Gosnell is the untold story of America's most prolific serial killer. In 2013, Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of killing four people, including three babies, but is thought to have killed hundreds, perhaps thousands more in a 30-year killing spree. ABC News correspondent Terry Moran described Gosnell as "America's most prolific serial killer". Gosnell is currently serving three life sentences (without the possibility of parole) for murdering babies and patients at his "House of Horrors" abortion clinic.
This book - and now a major movie starring Dean Cain (Lois & Clarke) - reveals how the investigation that brought Gosnell to justice started as a routine drugs investigation and turned into a shocking unmasking of America's biggest serial killer. It details how compliant politicians and bureaucrats allowed Dr. Gosnell to carry out his grisly trade because they didn't want to be accused of "attacking abortion". Gosnell also exposes the media cover-up that saw reporters refusing to cover a story that shone an unwelcome spotlight on abortion in America in the 21st century. Gosnell is an astounding piece of investigative journalism revealing a cover-up among the medical political and media establishments that allowed a killer to go undetected for decades.

"A story worth telling "
For some time I have searched the web for info on this case. Most articles I have found repeat the same few facts about the case. It was not enough for me. This book contains all of the details I have found and much more.
"A small town crime story" says a member of the media. This makes it sound common place. Maybe it meant the lives and demise of these victims were unremarkable. I surely hope not. If this can be wrote off as "a small town crime story" I worry about what else is deemed unworthy of national news attention. Some say public attention or what they believe wil grab the public's attention is what detremines what becomes national news. I hope this book becomes a best seller so the media recalculates what matters.
It was the uncomfortable silence surrounding the case and that the victims deserved to have their stories heard that has kept me searching for more information until now.
"One of the most heart breaking books ever"
I loved this book... though at times I'd cry, my jaw would drop, or I'd be filled with rage or disgust. My heart broke time and again listening to what happened. The most terrifying thing is... this is a true story. It actually happened and it's a horror story that'll definitely touch a nerve.
"Painful to hear but important"
Well/researched story of the investigation of Kermit Gosnell, convicted serial killer of late term babies who survived abortions Gosnell had performed.
"Powerful and sad"
The tale of Kermit Gosnell is not unique. Those of us that have followed issues of human dignity and value human life know there are many other Kermit Gosnells out there. But for brining this story to light, I am eternally grateful to Ann and Phelim.
I have not read a story about a serial killer before. I thought, how could you write 11 hours worth of material. But the story here is complete and answers so many questions from so many angles I realized something - thank God I didn't have to filter through the countless hours of information that Ann and Phelim had to to produce such a clear and concise presentation.
I am hopeful that he associates movie will be well received. And I am hopeful that shedding light on these dark subjects will bring this nation to repentance over the horror of abortion. Let
"Sad but eye opening"
I have always viewed abortion as murder but the disrespect and cold nature that I'm sure many abortionist have for the lives of these innocent babies makes it more appalling to me . Loved the narrator!
"You think you know, but you have no idea...."
If you relied on the media to infirm you about this case, you haven't heard the half of it. This book will give you every detail, and then you will see why it was not front page news.
"Everyone need to read this."

"Eye opening and tragic. Unsettling for the soul."
My heart aches for the most pure and innocent souls. Deeply saddened by the harsh reality that so many turn a blind eye. You can feel the emotion in the story telling in this book, and hear the heart break in the narration. Everyone should read this book. It may be just what we need to be moved to pursue kinder options.
"A Must Listen!"
A chilling true story about America's most prolific serial killer, hidding behind several layers of Liberal sacred cows! The author gives justice to her book with a true to life emotional reading.
"A Horrifying True Story, a Very Inconvenient Truth"
It took courage to write this story and it will take courage for one to read it. I hope many people are brave enough to read it so that the narrative of abortion can be changed. It will stretch many people's beliefs on at what point a ftus
