One thought on “Until the Twelfth of Never: The Deadly Divorce of Dan & Betty Broderick

  1. This is one of the most extraordinary true crime books of all time, a massive best seller in the 1990s, an Edgar Award winner, but the author Bella Stumbo died in 2002 and it disappeared from print.It has now just been released on Kindle and is coming back to paperback and hardback print in April May.It is a book that divided readers at the time as to whether Betty Broderick was a justified avenging angel in murdering her ex husband and his new wife, or an out and out wacko.As you read it, it is [...]


  2. This book may be out of print now and hard to find but it is worth it to find a copy I had to get mine from a private seller at I read a lot of true crime but this book is so much than that It is about family dynamics, marriage, home maker vs career mom, cheating, divorce, and so much .The gist of the story is that Betty made her family her whole life She put her husband through school and went about being the best mother she could be Betty can be kind of a shrew but she goes through the years [...]


  3. After seeing the moving at least a dozen times, I heard about this book and tracked down a copy It s designed to show both sides as fairly as possible, and I think it did just that There was so much about Dan and Linda that I never knew, and it made me re think my opinion about Betty While murder should never be an option, it s clear to me that Dan and Linda had no concern for her whatsoever, knew they were making her crazy, and they chose to continue that path They shouldn t have died for it, b [...]


  4. Until the Twelfth of Never is an excellent debut by writer Bella Stumbo, of an ugly and acrimonious divorce that turned deadly Stumbo goes deep into the backgrounds of both Dan and Betty Broderick and their eventually troubled marriage She exposes the flaws from both of them She does not portray Dan to be a saint, nor Betty to be a devil in sheep s clothing Rather than feeling anger or outrage toward Dan or Betty, it s easy for the reader to feel a deep unsettling, knowing the outcome d knowing [...]


  5. This is definitely a book about what not to do in a divorce I knew about this case before reading this book, but there were a few things I did learn from it I think that these two people were slated for a disaster straight from the beginning It is sad to see that people will do these things to each other, just for the sake of being the winner I think each person was 50% responsible for what happened, although I think Betty really needed to realize some things, as she was so set in what she belie [...]


  6. Such a painful story, told well and with judgment being meted out to all parties involved, including the murder victims This book and this case have both brought me considerable attention as a writer due to a long op ed piece I wrote about the case and two shorter flanking articles this is something that I do not enjoy and did not seek, but so it goes with anything Broderick It is a case that continues to anger and outrage I do not believe Betty Broderick belongs in prison.


  7. Betty Broderick came to fame in late 1989 when she shot her ex husband Dan Broderick and his new wife, Linda Kolkena to death in their bed What viewers got to see was a long, drawn out custody battle over their four children, and of course, money What viewers of the two murder trials didn t get to see was the manipulations, abuse, and gaslighting that Dan did to Betty In 1983, Dan began an affair with his legal secretary, Linda When Betty asked if he was cheating on her, Dan said no Dan said he [...]


  8. An amazing, gut wrenching book about Betty Broderick, the La Jolla woman who killed her ex husband Dan and his new wife Linda in 1989 after a 6 year divorce and property settlement battle There s plenty of blame for everyone in this tawdry case attorney Dan Broderick who used the courts to punish Betty, Linda who carried on an affair with Dan for years, and Betty who had no identity other than wife of Dan, mother of their 4 children And the ultimate victims were those poor children who were noth [...]


  9. This is one of the saddest true crime books I ve ever read.I first heard of Betty Broderick when I caught the Lifetime movie about her on TV a few weeks ago I was a very young child in the early 90 s so I hadn t heard anything about her back then After watching the movie and learning it was heavily bias, I started searching for a accurate telling of her story and came across this book I was very lucky to get the Kindle version for free a few days ago and I just couldn t put it down.The sheer to [...]


  10. This is a much balanced account of the marriage and divorce of Dan and Betty Broderick This was a marriage that ultimately ended in Betty shooting and killing Dan and his new, younger wife Other versions, including the television movie, paint Dan and Linda as innocent victims This book illustrates the malice on both sides None of the adults involved were innocent Dan and Linda were clearly involved in an ongoing affair long before the divorce, although Dan continued to deny it, even in the face [...]


  11. It is a fascinating look into the mind of a woman who was left for a younger woman The outcome of course, was tragic However, the journey to the outcome is mind boggling Kudos to Bella for a well written, gripping read I read this in 2007 I loaned it out after, and it was gone for about a year or so then returned to me by my good friend with a note written in I had also written a note I plan to read it again in the near future.2012 Yes, I will be reading it again it still sticks with me.I took m [...]


  12. Dan Broderick is a successful lawyer who has an affair with his assistant and then leaves his wife, Betty, for this much younger woman Betty kills them both which shocks the upscale community in which they live in I was completely engrossed in this true crime novel and I thought it was well written because the book covers the span of their marriage, beginning with the early years as they struggled financially when Dan was in law school to the present when he became successful and they lived an u [...]


  13. Our library has this book, and I check it out periodically because it is such a compelling read The book is completely unbiased, using facts to tell the ultimate tale of a woman who felt scorned when her husband left her for a younger woman Nobody played fair on either side Betty was portrayed in the miniseries and in American Justice as a jealous, slightly psychotic ex wife You really need to read the book to get the full scope of everything that happened on both sides.


  14. This seems to be a fairer account of the breakdown of a marriage than the movies were but Betty Broderick had choices than most women and she refused to help herself or her childrenif she couldn t have it her way she wouldn t accept anything else


  15. Many typos and editing errors, but if you overlook those, this is a deep look into how one person can drive another over the edge While I do not condone murder, I can see how she ended up at that point.



  16. This is perhaps one of the greatest accounts of a true crime ever So many misconceptions surround the case, which I suppose is common in many murders Even the book blurb on contains at least one factual error Linda Kolkena graduated high school, but according to Bella Stumbo, she never attended college Also, Dan Broderick hired her because she was hot She could not even type, let alone work as a professional paralegal But I digress Since the double homicide of Dan and Linda Broderick occurred in [...]


  17. My goodness it took me nearly 18 long, excruciating days to finish this one I only read on the weekdays but I have finally finished all 495 pages colored with small, fine print I had a different version than the one listed here, thank god The only reason I am not giving it merely one star is due to the fact that 1 This book was recommended by my favorite author, Gillian Flynn2 I was fully immersed in the first 100 or so pages3 Stumbo had truly gone above and beyond in completing her investigatin [...]


  18. Interesting to see how crazy life can get and what could drive someone to murder However too many swearwords for my taste WAY to many and while they are transcripts from the murderers own phone calls, they don t add much to the whole story that saying, She left VERY fowl mouthed messages on their answering machine I do think this book is pretty unbiased in the sense that I finished reading it thinking that every single party was just an awful person There wasn t one redemptive quality among them [...]


  19. This book was good I felt like Betty did get the short end of the stick but that she took it too far when she killed the ex husband and new wife If she would of just moved on she would have been better off If your looking for a true crime story I would recommend this book.


  20. The bible regarding the Broderick case, of which I am one of the foremost authorities it is a topic that I have written about on a number of occasions and at great length.


  21. Amazing This is the third book I have read about the Brodericks It is the most detailed, balanced, and sad Well written and complete.


  22. OHMYGOODNESS THIS IS SO INTERESTING It s a long book, but worth the read Basically, Betty worked like crazy to put her husband through med school AND law school while raising little ones pretty much on her own Her husband was brilliant, eventually made it big, and traded her in for his secretary once the money started rolling in So she killed him And her This book is unique because it is careful to tell all sides of the story Betty, her husband, and his secretary all share some responsibility in [...]


  23. This was an excellent look into the lives of every victim involved in this tragedy It pulls you into the mind of Betty, slowly going insane over the years trying to hold together a marriage, that was never meant to last It actually pulled me in so much emotionally, I had to take a break for a few days A book has never done that to me before I have heard of this story since I was younger, and always assumed it to be a story of a man and wife, and a perfect marriage and some young beautiful seduct [...]


  24. I first read this book about fifteen years ago and although I appreciate Bella Stumbo s journalistic style, I view the tragic Broderick story in a different light now that I am older and wiser Stumbo gets into Betty s head a bit, probably from her extensive research about the case, interviews with people who knew Betty, and letters and interviews with Betty herself.When I was younger I sort of sympathized with Betty, the wronged wife in this drama Dan and Linda came across as selfish jerks and I [...]


  25. Here lies a lawyer and an honest man OMG They buried two guys in the same grave A successful trial lawyer will argue a case with great passion and in his next trial argue just as passionately for the opposite side of the issue Is he dishonest It would be accurate to say that the American justice system is not about truth but about winning at all costs This legal specialty attracts the hyper competitive.Daniel Broderick was the product of a family which placed high value on achievement and statu [...]


  26. Betty Broderick is the quintessential question mark of How does a woman goso crazy that shegets to the brink of Murder And then proceeds with it A fascinating read of her life and really gives youa glimpse into her personal mental torture and the reasons she snapped.At the end I still can t decide if I m in the Betty camp or not Most likely not.But it is still a question of the limits we all set for ourselves and how when pushedto a point things can go terribly wrong Is there justification for w [...]


  27. This is really good true crime book if that s a genre you enjoy This is the story of Dan and Betty They struggled to get by during their first few years of marriage, but they did what they had to to get themselves on their feet Once established, Dan found a great job as a lawyer, which enabled Betty to be a stay at home mom They became wealthy and well known in the La Jolla community Eventually their relationship tanks, Dan begins an affair, and the two put each other through a horrible divorce [...]


  28. I found this book at the local library, and I was eager to read about it I remember watching the movie with Meredith Baxter and thinking just another crazy, scorned ex wife mad because her husband left her for a younger version Although still true, there is so much to this story than that This book gives an very unbiased account of what occurred between the marriage and divorce of Dan and Betty What I really like about the book is it allowed the reader to decide for themselves who is are the vi [...]


  29. ven though this is a very long book, my interest never decreased, and I think it was very well written and supported with extensive research The Brodericks are apparently a well off happy marriage In the beginning, Betty had to work until Dan finished his studies With time, he became a renowned and successful lawyer He then fell in love with Linda, leaving Betty, and hell turned loose Terrible legal battles ensue, taking Dan advantage of his position as a lawyer, and Betty reacting in all possib [...]
