“Left For Dead” - A Woman’s Survival Story for the Ages

Milwaukee, Wisconsin – WEBWIRE

“Left For Dead,” a book by David Alfvin, is the riveting documentary drama of Teri Jendusa-Nicolai’s marriage to a violent, malignant narcissist, and her husband’s failed attempt to murder her. Called the “Crime of the Decade” in Wisconsin, Teri’s incredible survival story was covered by CNN and media outlets throughout the midwest. The book is the result of 40 hours of interviews between Teri and the author, who is an acquaintance,
Teri’s remarkable story was chronicled on CNN, 20/20 with Barbara Walters, the Oprah Winfrey Show (twice) and the Doctor Oz Show. “Left For Dead” was #1 nationally in four Kindle categories: 1) Couples and family therapy, 2) Violence in society, 3) Family health and 4) Forensic psychology.
Teri’s amazing near-death experience and subsequent triumph is inspiring and eye opening. The story takes you inside Teri’s home as she details experiences with a violent, controlling husband, David Larsen. “Left For Dead” also has valuable educational components, as readers are given inside looks at women’s shelters, law enforcement procedures and how male abusers are counseled.
Teri’s recovery and return to normal life is an inspiring chronicle of courage and a mother’s devotion to her two young daughters. “Left For Dead” is a rare fly-on-the-wall documentary drama about extraordinary domestic abuse, (in the victim’s own words), and the support abused women receive. The book is a perfect choice for book clubs, as it addresses many issues related to family violence.
