Elizabeth Kendall's memoir, The Phantom Prince, was originally published in 1981. Molly Kendall, her daughter, considered Bundy a father figure between the ages of three and ten.
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
