I was 14 when I read this book That's too young My mom had a unique philosophy regarding censorshipso far as I remember, she didn't censor anything I watched Holocaust movies when I was six And I watched Mark Harmon portray Ted Bundy in The Deliberate Stranger on TV when I was just a kid.I was a freshman in high school, doing an overly ambitious research project on Ted Bundy He had captured my imagination in the movie, and his recent execution left him lingering in my thoughts As I was researching, I wanted desperately to knowhow could someone live with and love someone that was so patently evil?The answer is simple; it's easy to miss what you don't want to see Kendall wrote this book with the benefit of hindsight She was able to look back at their yearslong relationship and see just how twisted and damaging it actually was She was able to piece together odd occurrences and see them as signs of Bundy's monstrosity At the time, though, he was her princethe man who loved her The small odd things weren't enough to force her to leave him in much the same way that people don't leave abusive partners At first, it wasn't bad Later, she didn't know what to do without him He had become a habit in her unhappy life It was only after he was accused of murderand his coworker Carol seemed to be his second girlfriendthat Kendall was able to cut him out of her life This is an important book in helping to understand the psychology of abused and dependent partners It's too bad that it's out of print.The fact that I remember the book this well19 years after reading itshould serve as testament to its power. A quick addictive read I got this out of print book in a PDF attached to a discussion thread in one of my murderinos groups on face book As interested as I am in the psychology of everyone, it was extremely interesting peering into the mind of Ted Buddy’s long time girlfriend I feel like I understand her He sounds like he was your average avoidant manipulative asshole to her and she didn’t want to believe that he was truly a monster He really was a frightening monster and a confusing one Makes you believe that some people may be born evil and there may be no way to mitigate that state Here is a link to the PDF version that I read I heard it is out of print and sells for 200$ onso I thought I would share the love no idea if this link will work When I first read Ann Rule's The Stranger Beside Me, I was intrigued by the fact that Ted Bundy was first reported to the police by his girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall Kendall felt that the sketch put out by the police in the papers resembled her boyfriend He also drove a Volkswagen, the car reported to be used by the killer according to people who might have seen him But by then, the police had already checked Bundy out twice and ruled him out as the killer/kidnapper of the missing women Kendall continued to date Bundy after he was initially cleared, before reporting him again to the police She even dated and stayed with him even after he was arrested and released on bail! The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy is a painful and brutally honest account of Elizabeth Kendall's relationship with Ted Bundy during the early 1970s I say brutally honest because Kendall is frank about her own inferiority complexes, dependent behavior, immaturity and above all, her alcoholism She portrays herself as a naive, silly and overtly dependent person who turns to alcohol when the lying, manipulative and guiltless Bundy stands her up on many occasions after promising to marry her She supports him throughout his failures as a law student and setbacks in his career She probably did get paid to cowrite the book I am not sure about this At the center of this book is an outwardly normal and promising American couple about to embark on the fulfillment of their dreams and get married They even meet each other’s parents and friends They have a great sex life But the guy exhibits strange behavior at times stealing, lying about his career prospects, indulging in hurtful behavior like not turning up on dates and going back on promises to get married that would make most women ditch him But the girlfriend holds onto her man, hoping that he would reform eventually And for a while it does seem like things would work out for them when he is accepted at law school But it eventually turns out that the guy has a secret life, unbeknown to his woman, in which he goes around kidnapping, killing and raping beautiful young women I cannot even begin to imagine the pressure this lady must have gone through when she first suspected Bundy of being the killer and her mental state when he was eventually arrested The relationship scarred her beyond recovery As she admits in the last few pages of the book: “On one level I find I have developed a grim view of human beings and what they are capable of doing to other human beings That makes it hard for me to get very close to people.” There were many instances in the book when I found myself feeling really bad for this woman I don’t know much about the milieu of 1970s America But it seemed to be a time when people where moving out of their parent’s homes and living alone in other states and trying to face life on their own Imagine a vulnerable girl on her own, without too many friends, running into someone like Ted Bundy I don’t deny that I am intrigued and fascinated by Ted Bundy and his acts I would read any book that would offer me clues about what drove Bundy to do what he did That is the main reason why I read this book But this book offers another point of view It offers insight into why some weak women are attracted to manipulative, charismatic but eventually damaging personalities like Ted Bundy Interestingly, Ted Bundy was in jail around the same time as Gary Gil Norman Mailer wrote a towering truelife novel about Gil’s life, including his relationship with his girlfriend Nicole I don’t think Mailer would have been interested in the middleclass milieu in which Bundy and Kendall met and moved around in But he was certainly interested in psychopaths Some great writer ought to have written a truelife novel about the relationship between Bundy and Kendall It certainly deserves a better book than this one Not that this is a bad book It covers the procedural aspects of Kendall and her best friend’s initial suspicions about Bundy quite well, like their initial phone calls to the police and meetings with undercover policemen They did not have mobile phones back in the 60s and the 70s People who did not keep diaries kept track of the past through notes on the sides of their cheque leaves/books That’s how Kendall tries to recollect the past when the police become interested in her allegations about her boyfriend Like in Mailer’s The Executioner’s Song, The Phantom Prince also contains the letters and poems exchanged by the jailed killer and his girlfriend on the outside Psychologists might never come to a conclusion about what drives psychopaths Is it the genes? Upbringing? Modern life? But this book is not really about the psychopathic Ted Bundy It is about a vulnerable, materialistic, needy and ultimately tragic person who wants a good square life for herself in the greatest country in the world But the man she chooses as her gateway into the American dream is the most successful psychopath of the 20th century At one point, she fears whether newspapers would dig out the fact that she reported her law student boyfriend as a possible killer when he ran for the post of governor after they were married! 4, what a harrowing story, had to read it before her interview stars!!Full disclosure, this one was hard for me to read and to rate What Kendall went through, especially in hindsight and having to learn piece by piece the atrocities that Bundy committed is devastating to say the absolute least However, Kendall isn't an author, she was just a woman who had a story to tell and a human being who hadtrauma and emotion to sort through than most of us will ever have to face They saw Ted Bundy as a murderer I knew him as a lover and a friend.This book was originally written in 1988, by a version of Elizabeth Kendall that no longer exists I don't know many people, if any, who would say they're the same person they were 5 years ago, let alone 20 or 30 I know how different I am, how much I've grown and changed through adult hood and I've had little trauma that compares to that of Kendall This book felt a little bit like a tableau of a person who no longer exists and I found that absolutely fascinating When you're reading the portions of this book that were written back in 1988 it's painfully clear that Kendall hadn't worked her way through the trauma, emotions or abuse that she had faced at the hands of Bundy The Phantom Prince is a painful and heartbreaking look at a woman who was broken, only to put herself back together, alone, at the end of one of the most harrowing stories I've ever read Kendall was incredibly honest with herself throughout the writing of this story She is frank and open about her alcoholism, her dependency on a man she knew was no good, her immaturity and how that allowed her to be targeted and abused, her anxious attachment and the inferiority complex that kept her coming back to Bundy time and again despite his own abhorrent behavior I see why people are obsessed with figuring him out For years, I thought continually about how this same person I loved could do these cruel and violent things Finally, I was able to let go I took on this mantra: He’s crazy, and being sane, you will never understand crazy Just give up Live your life You still have it It’s a gift.I'm not going to go into a full synopsis of this book, because at it's heart, it really isn't about Ted Bundy, the lover or the boyfriend It's about Elizabeth Kendall and her strength and resilience It was an interesting insight into one of the most notorious murderers and monsters the world has ever seen Straight through the eyes of his closest, most intimate victims While the entirety of this book held my interest, I have to say the preface and the afterward were my absolute favorite To read about Kendall's reflection on what she had written so shortly after Bundy's arrests and trials was absolutely inspired.In the end, this isn't necessarily about Ted Bundy, but the way that life, experience and love can heal a human being It's Elizabeth Kendall's story of selfredemption and of finding her way back from the brink of absolute darkness.

This updated book I felt was very well done, given the wisdom of several decades to reflect, and to help improve Liz's harsh feelings about herself at the time I was shocked at how much I'd forgotten of the original story I'm still absorbing it, I suppose The part written by the daughter, Molly, was enlightening and heartbreaking all at once But she seems to have made peace with the past fairly well I would recommend for any true crime fan, especially for any that are interested in Ted Bundy, one of the better known serial killers with many books written about him, even long after his execution There are also many never seen before pictures in the book of Bundy and the author and others Published on my WordPress blog, seen here: I found this book at my parents used book store in a pile of books they found at a yard sale I read through it in a weekend This book is super creepy If you want a book that you can't put down and will scare you to death for the next ten years, then read this. Thin, but fascinating! This and Ann Rule's book are the best two about Bundy of all of them Good luck finding this one My hubby bought it off ebay for entirely too much. This was an impulse read, a book which I noticed our library had on order Years ago I read Anne Rule's book on Ted Bundy The Stranger Beside Me: Ted Bundy: The Shocking Inside Story and she mentioned this woman (in a somewhat derogatory way, if I remember correctly) Bundy was a big story when I was in high school and his actions and trials may have been what started my life long fascination with true crime stories Sometimes I wonder if I read this genre to get clues about keeping safe On the theory that if I can figure out where other women went wrong, I can avoid the same mistakes.Rule mentioned this book in passing and I tried to find it years ago without success This version is a new edition with some new thoughts from a woman who has hit bottom and has struggled to free herself from the expectations of patriarchal religion, from addiction, and from an abusive, manipulative relationship There were several times that it seemed to me that she was assuming responsibility for things that weren't hers This idea that somehow women are responsible for the behaviour of their boyfriends and husbands This lets the men off the hook and makes women feel like they are crazy As if there was anything that Liz could have done to fix Bundy.It's hard to believe awful things about anyone, let alone someone you have an intimate relationship with This is one of the reasons that people remain in abusive situations When one of my sisters was extracting herself from an abusive marriage, her counsellor told her that taking 4 to 6 years to take decisive action isn't unusual This means that Liz, who was involved with Bundy for 6 years, was completely within the bounds of normal But her subconscious was working overtime Her drinking just kept getting worse, probably because she didn't want to see the situation clearly Her suspicions kept driving her to talk to the police, followed by feelings of guilt for having those doubts No wonder that these swings in view added to her substance abuse led the police to unkindly call her “a real squirrel.” I wonder if she would receive better treatment today, with our greater understanding of addiction One can hope so I really felt for her daughter, who kept some unsettling experiences to herself for a long time So many of us keep secrets for fear of not being believed I think both of these women are exceptionally luck to be alive I wish them both peace.Cross posted at my blog: The Phantom Prince
