Product description


“As gripping as THE BURNING BED.”—John Saul, New York Times Bestselling Author 

“A superbly written, riveting—often horrifying—story urgently needed for our time. Davidson—with a reporter’s eye for detail—delivers a powerhouse page-turner about the limits of what a human being can endure...and still come out victorious. With mesmerizing suspense and the heart-stopping twists and turns of a fast-paced crime novel, here is an important book that ensnares the reader from the first page, and should be read, then read again.”—Susan Page, bestselling author of If I’m So Wonderful, Why Am I Still Single? and Executive Director of the acclaimed San Miguel Writers’ Conference  

“The book is gripping; it reads like the best of mystery novels and the reader cannot wait to find out what happens in the next section or chapter. It is an excellent supplemental reading source for the upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses I teach on Family Violence. The author does a superior job of getting the reader into the mindset of a woman experiencing both the battered woman syndrome and learned helplessness...The outcome is totally unpredictable and a reader would be well-advised to avoid the temptation to turn to the end in order to learn the final outcome.”—Raymond Teske, Jr., Ph.D., Professor, Criminal Justice Center, Sam Houston State University

About the Author

Robert Davidson speaks nationally and has written numerous columns for various publications. In The Beast I Loved, originally published in 2000 as FIGHTING BACK, he examines family dysfunction, the psychology of violence, and the resulting tragedy. He was the winner of New England's venerable Seacoast Writers Association award for Best Nonfiction. He also wrote How Good Parents Raise Great Kids, in which he discussed successful childrearing and the keys to personal fulfillment. Excerpts from the book have appeared in Good Housekeeping, Woman's Day, and Family Life, and it has been translated into eight foreign languages.
