Abrams signs updated memoir from Ted Bundy girlfriend Kendall

Abrams Press, distributed in the UK by Abrams & Chronicle, has signed an updated and expanded, long out-of-print memoir by serial killer Ted Bundy’s girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall and her daughter Molly.

Michael Sand, vice president and publisher of Abrams, acquired rights for The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy from Creative Artists Agency.

The synopsis explains: “Ted Bundy is one of the most notorious and publicised serial killers in American history. However, very rarely do we hear from the women he left behind. This updated and expanded reissue of Elizabeth Kendall’s 1981 memoir chronicles her intense, six-year relationship with Ted Bundy and its eventual unraveling, as she began to suspect his double life. Featuring a new introduction and a new afterword by Elizabeth, a new chapter from Molly, and never-before-seen photos, The Phantom Prince presents a remarkable examination of obsession, intrigue, and the darkness that love can mask.”

Sand said: “Abrams is thrilled to be able to republish this riveting book and share new material written by Elizabeth Kendall and her daughter Molly. The new chapters add startling insights and put the book in context for readers today, thirty years after Bundy’s death.”
