Doc: The Rape of the Town of Lovell

Jack Olsen

For twenty-five years, the trusted family doctor in a small Wyoming town had been raping and molesting the women and children who most relied on him.

Mostly Mormons, the naive victims sometimes realized on their wedding nights the truth about what had happened in Dr. Story’s office.

In riveting detail, veteran crime writer Jack Olsen tells the searing story of a small group of courageous women who decided to bring a doctor to justice — and unearthed a legacy of pain and anger that would divide their families, their neighbors, and an entire town.
