9780061582011: Evil Beside Her: The True Story of a Texas Woman's Marriage to a Dangerous Psychopath

Sleeping with a monster

At first, Linda Bergstrom's marriage to her husband James was idyllic. They were young and in love; he was about to enter the Navy and she was eager to start a family. But it wasn't long before the dream exploded. James became abusive and violent, prone to sudden bursts of anger, long silences, and unexplained disappearances. But Linda vowed to hold on, despite the pain and fear . . . and her disturbing suspicions about her husband's secret life.

Then, not long after their move to Houston, Texas, she made a terrifying discovery: James's hidden cache containing duct tape, a ski mask, and handcuffs. No longer could Linda Bergstrom deny the hideous truth.

The man she lived with, the man she married for love, was a dangerous psychopath. And there was no escape and nowhere to run. Because no one—not her friends, the Navy, or the police—would believe her.

About the Author:

  ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Kathryn Casey is an award-winning, Houston-based journalist, the author of six highly acclaimed true crime books, and the creator of the Sarah Armstrong mystery series. SINGULARITY, the first in the Armstrong series, was included in Booklist's best crime novel debuts of 2009, and Library Journal chose the third in the series, THE KILLING STORM, for its list of the best books of 2010. Casey's protagonist is a Texas Ranger/profiler headquartered in Company A, Houston. In addition, Ann Rule calls Casey, "one of the best in the true crime genre."       Casey has appeared on Oprah, Oprah Winfrey's Oxygen Network, Court TV, Biography, Nancy Grace, E! Network, Investigation Discovery, and A&E.

Review:

“A true crime classic! A chilling study where both the victim and the stalker are bizarre and inscrutable...by one of the best in the true crime genre.” (Ann Rule)

“Never has a book been more aptly titled. Masterfully, Casey weaves a dark and disturbing look into a world of advantaged youths who throw it all away in favor of drugs, booze and bad company, leaving a sordid trail of destruction - and death - in the wake. A troubling tale, indeed.” (Carlton Stowers)

“Kathryn Casey is one of the best true crime writers today...This is a ‘do not miss’ book.” (Ann Rule, author of Green River)

“Superbly researched and beautifully written. Kathryn Casey joins Carlton Stowers as the premier chroniclers of Texas crime. I devoured this book in one Texas-sized gulp.” Gregg Olsen, New York Times bestselling author of Abandoned Prayers (New York Times)

“With She Wanted it All, Casey stakes her claim as one of the best in the business.” (M. William Phelps, author of Perfect Poison)
