A Dance with the Devil: A True Story of Marriage to a Psychopath
Her marriage to retired Navy admiral John Perry seemed almost too good to be true. Because it was?
At the start of her relationship with the intelligent and worldly John Perry, Barbara Bentley couldn?t believe her luck?so when things didn?t add up, she struggled to ignore her doubts. She kept trying to put the pieces together?unaware that some of them were simply missing. Even as he drained her credit, dodged her questions, manipulated her and misled her, she stayed with him, suppressing her growing suspicions. Ultimately he would try to kill her, proving himself not a protector and provider, but a predator.
This is Barbara?s courageous, compelling story, in her own words?of the slow, choking darkness that fell after the honeymoon was over, what it took to finally drive her to escape and start her life anew, and her tireless efforts to protect other women and help them learn from her example.

An amazing story. I found most interesting John Perry's ability to fabricate a military background believed by many. That lead me to investigate impersonations of military officers, embellished awards/decorations and other fabrications regarding military experience. Read full review
