Bound to Die: The Shocking True Story of Bobby Joe Long, America's Most Savage Serial Killer

Book Hub Inc
4

Bound to Die is the true crime story of Florida serial
killer Bobby Joe Long, who was convicted of the heinous killings of nine
women in 1984 in the Tampa Bay area. The first body of 19-year-old
disco dancer Lana Long was found in a field on Mother’s Day with her
legs grotesquely ripped apart. Six months later, the bloody rampage
ended when the ninth victim was discovered. All had been tortured with
ropes and savagely beaten and raped. The killer’s confession of his
crimes is haunting. The vividly rendered results of his trials and
appeals are equally shocking.

First published by Kensington, NY in 1995, Bound to Die was
internationally recognized. It received seven mass media printings and
was issued in hardback as a Doubleday Mystery Guild Book Club selection.
This second edition features a new foreword on a capital case which is
still considered a definitive example of excellent police detection
before DNA.


Multiple television presentations have been made based on this book,
some including the author’s participation. Shortly after first
publication, a documentary based on the case was shown on Medical Detective that aired sporadically for years. In 2012, this story became the pilot for the new show Killer Profile on the Biography Channel.
