Ted 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. This updated and expanded reissue of Elizabeth Kendall's 1981 book The Phantom Prince chronicles her intense, six-year relationship with Ted Bundy and its eventual unraveling. Featuring a new introduction and a new afterword by the author, never-before-seen photos, and a new chapter from the author's daughter, Molly, this gripping account presents a remarkable examination of obsession, intrigue, and the darkness that love can mask.

Reviews for The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy, Updated and Expanded Edition

For decades, interest and news coverage about Ted Bundy focused on Bundy as a killer, privileging his perverse pathology and overweening ego over anyone else. Now the focus has shifted to the women whose world Bundy inhabited... whose lives were bound up with Ted Bundy like family, kept apart from the unimaginable but living everyday horrors of their own. Women like Elizabeth and Molly Kendall. -- GEN Magazine The Phantom Prince is both surreal and brave. Elizabeth Kendall and her daughter Molly share their remarkable personal experience of trauma and courage as it played out in the shadows of perhaps the most devastating true crime story of our time. --Trish Wood, Producer/Director of the Amazon Original documentary series, Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer It's apparent from the very first line of The Phantom Prince to Molly's final chapter ... that Kendall's voice, as well as that of her daughter, are needed. --Clemence Michallon The Independent
