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.

    " i read true crime all the time. This is the first author that made me actually "feel" for the victims. I love the way she writes "

    " I was given this book as a freebie by a co-worker. It reads like a lifetime movie if it had a love child with All My Children. Not a fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Mannetti | 9/1/2013

    " Wonderful thing about this book: you can (if you agree with the author) write to officials and let them know that you believe the perpetrator of the crimes (heinous in my opinion) should not be paroled in the near future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosemarie | 8/9/2013

    " Not one of the better true crime books I have ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 7/9/2013

    " An easy true crime read. Enlightening on the struggles woman in abusive relationships face. I would have liked to know more about the rapist/husband's childhood and what led him to this personality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie Snipes | 7/6/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 6/10/2013

    " I liked the style of Casey's writing. I also enjoy reading books that mention places that I have been or can picture them in my mind. I started locking my doors and turning on my house alarm after reading this one, and I most definitely leave my garage door closed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aysha | 5/15/2013

    " Reads like an Ann Rule true crime book. Very good writing and insight into a depraved mind and the courage of a young wife to save her daughter from the husband who would harm their child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 3/19/2013

    " Great book by a great author. James Bergstrom is one scary dude. Hope he never gets out of prison. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayle | 2/18/2013

    " This was fairly average for true crime and about halfway through I realized I'd read about this case somewhere before. I still think the wife was very courageous and it's chilling to think there are people out there like Bergstrom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 2/15/2013

    " Scary, true tale of a young woman's life with a husband from hell. Yet, this woman had the strength to help put him away for a very long time! "
