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

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Buyer Beware!"

    I bought this book hoping it would be interesting. The narrator did a decent job. I returned this book because of the multiple references to child sexual abuse. (I got to about chapter 4.) Although the mention of the abuse was not overly graphic, it was certainly disturbing. I wish I would have known this fact before I bought this book. I am writing this review to warn other readers.

    Story
    "Good effort, needs polishing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. I believe this is Ms. Casey's first true crime book (The Rapist's Wife), with an epilogue at the end. It is clear that she has not honed her skills of true crime books with this effort, but it is still a chilling read. It is definitely more graphic sexually with regard to the marriage of James and Linda, and less about the crimes he committed and the people whose lives he changed.


    What does Debbie Andreen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was an incredible narrator choice for this book! Her accents and tones were superb... I'd read almost anything else she narrated!


    Any additional comments?

    While this is not Kathryn Casey's best work, it is a worthwhile addition to the true crime genre. Her other books, particularly She Wanted it All and A Descent into Hell are much stronger books.
