Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "is a story that really needed to be told!"

    this is one of the saddest stories I've ever heard and it's true. It doesn't matter if you're pro-life or pro-choice what happened at that clinic was unconscionable.

    "Chilling"

    The information in this book will haunt me for the rest of my life. It is disturbing how someone could get away with this for so long.

    You will be shocked that this is the first you've heard of this case. It's difficult to stomach the brutality of this book, but you should read it.

    Story
    "UNBELIEVABLE!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone interested in true crime, and what REALLY goes on behind big named business practices of "Planned Parenthood." This book was a real eye opener for me! I will NEVER think of medical care the same way again!! Living, breathing human beings were not only mistreated and abused, they often felt they had found a savior, who only wanted to help them rectify mistakes.


    What other book might you compare Gosnell to and why?

    I honestly, can't compare this book to ANY that I've previously read. It stands on it's own. And, I mean this in the worst possible way!! We have grown up in awe of doctors, trusting them in their decisions to keep us healthy. If I've learned nothing else, it would be that "Money and greedy people equals pain so severe, nothing even comes close to dulling the devastating misery we can find ourselves heaped into."


    Which character – as performed by Ann McElhinney – was your favorite?

    As sad as it is, my favorite character as portrayed by Ann McElhinney, would be the villain, himself, "Gosnell." The reader did an amazing job and held my interest the whole book through. Anyone who knows me, knows what a huge challenge that can be!!


    If you could give Gosnell a new subtitle, what would it be?

    "KILLER IN A LAB COAT"


    Any additional comments?

    This book, will never reach an end in my mind. It will continue to live with me and haunt me for the rest of my life. Somehow, I feel violated. That's how VERY REAL this story is. It "Packs a Big Punch!!!"

    Story
    "An important telling of a court case"

    Despite arguments that this was indictment abortion or pro choice, that is not what this book is. It is a reverting examination into a heart of a man who appears to be have developed a God Complex. How he swiftly threw his medical knowledge into a drawer somewhere & took up the practice being a common butcher.

    The most damning thing about this case is the years & lives lost because of PA Dept of Health just checked the boxes on state inspections decades before & then never once looked back despite multiple red flags.

    "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.

    Story
    "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
