Veteran investigative reporter Lowell Cauffiel, acclaimed author of Masquerade, delivers the dramatic account of the Alpine Manor Nursing Home murders in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Forever and Five Days reveals the forces that drove two women to commit five hideous murders and details their shocking trials. Photos. Amazon. com Review Cathy was the lively one–the bleached-blonde star of the nurses’ aides’ lunchroom–the one who enjoyed scripting an ever-changing soap opera from the lives of the nursing-home staff. Gwen was the pug-nosed newcomer with a little girl’s dependency and desire to please: she doted on Cathy, and was honored to be chosen as her lover. They turned a respected Michigan nursing home into their playground for frivolous games and practical jokes. Then Cathy got worried that Gwen was cheating on her, so she suggested a love pact that would bind them together ‘forever and five days. ‘ Gwen carried out her wishes, and smothered five patients in their beds. It’s a story with a large cast of characters–the employees of the nursing home, the individual patients and their loving families, the outsiders who wondered and worried. Lowell Cauffiel does a good job of letting us into their lives, and into the world of make-believe that allowed these murders to go unnoticed for so long. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
