Publisher's Summary

Dan Broderick was one of California's most successful attorneys; his wife, Betty, a beautiful socialite. But when Betty discovered Dan's hidden life, the façade of LaJolla's golden couple was shattered. What followed was a vicious five-year battle that finally ended in a shocking double murder.

A Harvard Law School graduate, Dan manipulated the law to strip Betty of everything she loved: her home, her friends - even her children. When she frantically tried to fight back, he had her committed to a mental hospital. His new wife, Linda, even sent the once-beautiful Betty wrinkle cream ads and weight loss pamphlets.

Consumed by hatred and thoughts of revenge, Betty's rage exploded on the night of November 5, 1989. Before the sun rose the next day, Dan Broderick and his gorgeous new wife were dead - their bullet-riddled bodies wrapped in the blood-soaked sheets of their bed.

No tears for Dan Broderick

Overall, a bit disappointing. Narrator OK, average. Despite Betty Broderick's often loathsome behavior, her ex-husband was a controlling, egocentric jerk who verbally and emotionally abused her for years. Yet Betty worked multiple jobs, cooked, cleaned, waited on him hand and foot while going through NINE pregnancies (one a miscarriage) and putting Dan through both medical and law school. Once Dan was a huge success - he dumped Betty for a younger version of her! Dan Broderick was a louse and he and his new wife made Betty's life a living hell. Can't say I blame her!

Not Bad To Listen To

I think many wish Betty Broderick would just go away. She destroyed many lives in the process of her jealous rage toward her ex husband and his new wife. On November 5, 1989 she murdered them in their own beds.

The story is all too familiar to many of us. The “Dirty John” program featured Betty and her story. She’s well known. This book doesn’t add much to the story but is a good listen if you’re on a trip.

Overall I do recommend it.

Bitter Ending Glad Betty Found Herself

Binged listened. The plight of Betty and what she went through psychologically was shocking, although what she did is unacceptable, she was clearly pushed over the edge. Great narration and performance.

The Story Never Told Has Arrived

Since the lifetime movie aired, I have loved Betty Broderick's tale. Dirty John brought the story back into the mainstream with a light that shown on aspects of Betty's the earlier films omitted. Turns out the lifetime movie was based off info given to film makers by Dan's brother. Here, in this book, the veil of bias is lifted and we meet Betty Broderick, perhaps for the first time.

Same story, nothing new, but still great!

It’s the same story with the same details, but still an interesting court case! Enjoyed it!
