The True Story of a Serial Murderer and Three Courageous Women
by Joy Wellman, Lisa McVey and Susan Replogle
After being spurned by Susan Replogle, Bobby Joe Long attacked and raped her. He then went on to attack and rape over 200 women and murder 10 women. Seventeen-year-old Lisa McVey was abducted and repeatedly raped by the serial killer for 27 hours, but using her wits, she escaped and led the police to him.
In Smoldering Embers, Lisa, Susan and Joy Wellman—a rape survivor and one-time rape counselor—bond together, vowing to see that Bobby Joe Long is punished and that justice is finally and irrevocably done.
"Eerily parallels the plot of the hit movie Kiss the Girls."
