The inspiration for the five-part Amazon Original docuseries Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer
This updated, expanded edition of The Phantom Prince, Elizabeth Kendall’s 1981 memoir detailing her six-year relationship with serial killer Ted Bundy, includes a new introduction and a new afterword by the author, never-before-seen photos, and a startling new chapter from the author’s daughter, Molly, who has not previously shared her story. Bundy is one of the most notorious serial killers in American history and one of the most publicized to this day. However, very rarely do we hear from the women he left behind—the ones forgotten as mere footnotes in this tragedy. The Phantom Prince chronicles Elizabeth Kendall’s intimate relationship with Ted Bundy and its eventual unraveling. As much as has been written about Bundy, it’s remarkable to hear the perspective of people who shared their daily lives with him for years. This gripping account presents a remarkable examination of a charismatic personality that masked unimaginable darkness.
A wonderful story of love and tragedy!
Liz and Molly wrote an amazing book outlining the details of their lives, the love and relationships they both had with Ted Bundy! This book is brilliant, the pain that Liz and her daughter went through, is something no women or child should ever have to be faced with. These are 2 beautiful and brillant women, who’s story and life with Mr.Bundy turned towards a tragic direction...ending in pain, confusion and heart break! All of Ted’s victims needs to be remembered, the tragedy of his robbing so many vibrant young women and girls of their lives and futures. Liz and Molly were both victims of Ted Bundy, yes they may have survived with their lives...however Ted still robbed them of so very much! This book allows readers to gain an insight as to what life was like with Ted. Liz and Molly talk of the happy times, the love, the relationships, the fear, the confusion and the pain they both endured at the hands of this man. Internal, emotional and mental scars are often just as horrible as physical scars, and both of these beautiful women had their worlds turned upside down and shattered by the man they loved and trusted! It was a breath of fresh air to read the perspectives of these women, and I highly recommend this reading! To Liz and Molly, you are both inspirational, and I wish you nothing but the best in both your lives!
