“Doc: The Rape of the Town of Lovell” by Jack Olsen

Doc: The Rape of the Town of LovellDoc: The Rape of the Town of Lovell by Jack Olsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The true tale of John Story and his crimes against women is a frightening revelation of what can happen in a small town when women are afraid to speak out. Jack Olsen takes you through the horrors of Story’s crimes, at first delicately as the women of Lovell, Wyoming reveal their experiences on his examining table. As each victim comes forth with her story it becomes almost unbelievable. The idea that a trusted and respected small town doctor could manage to rape young girls and women and get away with it for so long is horrifying. When his actions, denials, and rebuttals grow to unbelievable levels the entire town is split into factions; Story supporters and Story accusers. Already somewhat at odds due to religious differences, Mormons and Christians, the gap widens and the hatred reaches insane depths. Long time friends become enemies, violence erupts, and Story sits back letting it happen. As more and more victims surface from Story’s past it becomes obvious his depravity has grown over time. Only the determination of a group of brave women who stand strong bring justice to the town of Lovell. Well written and gripping, “Doc: The Rape of the Town of Lovell” is an example to abused women everywhere that evil can be rooted out and exposed no matter how successful the criminal. In fact this book was so good I easily overlooked the editing errors.
