In 1991, a new nurse, Beverly Allitt, caused havoc in Children’s Ward 4 at Lincolnshire’s Grantham and Kesteven General Hospital. Failings in the health system at both local and national levels, plus Allitt’s ‘Munchausen by Proxy’
behaviour meant she was eventually convicted of four child murders, three attempted murders and of causing GBH to six other children. 

This book concentrates on the case surrounding Allitt, and on a horrific situation, the truth of which has never clearly surfaced.

Dr David Holding studied history at Manchester University before entering the teaching profession in the 1970s. He taught in both state and independent sectors. During this time, he continued historical research culminating in both a Master's degree and a Doctorate. Having previously studied law, David gained a Master of Law degree in Medical Law, which enabled him to transfer to teaching legal courses at university. Since retiring, David has concentrated his research and writing on various aspects of local history, legal trials, forensic science and medico-legal topics.
