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.… (més)

When I read the description of this book (a doctor who rapes many patients during a 25-year career) I literally could not imagine how such a thing could be. I mean, I could imagine how a doctor could rape one patient one time, but more than one person more than one time? Because the book was on sale for $0.99, I decided to buy it and find out.

I was very impressed at the quality of the writing (setting aside the OCR errors that all to many e-books are plagued with, which is why I lowered the rating by one star). I can see how this book won an Edgar. Olsen showed how the crime was perfectly plausible. He documented how brave the victims were for coming forward, yet also how honest and loyal the doctor's defenders are.

I was especially sad to read how the case sundered friendships and families. (Apparently the poison spread even further after the events of the book: for one of the doctor's appeals, one sister's victim swore an affidavit that her sister had perjured herself during the criminal trial.) Olsen represented all sides fairly; he also managed to write about very religious people without condescending to them, which not many mainstream authors can do.

Previously, my "best ever true crime" list had only three titles: Helter Skelter, The Stranger Beside Me, The Mormon Murders. This excellent book is now #4 on that list. (also published on Amazon) ( )

Wow This was another great book by Jack Olsen.
I got so angry at those town people.
I was really shocked reading this,and yes stunned that LSD and mormons alike, are still so ignorant.

Great true crime book, fans of Jack Olsen will love it. The women who testified against this man are to be admired for their tenacity and courage. ( )

Women in rural areas who are raised to be submissive are particularly vulnerable to abuse by unethical authority figures. This is an important story because it makes clear how much damage one man can do in such a setting, and how difficult it is for women in such communities to speak up in defense of themselves, their mothers, sisters, and daughters.
