One’s darkest fantasy is another’s horrific reality.
Polygamy. Incest. Vampires. Murder. There are words you might expect to read together in the plot of a gothic horror novel, but not so long ago, in the usually quiet town of Fresno, California, those words were the headlines. What do they have to do with each other? The answer to that question is one man; Marcus Wesson.
Chances are you have heard of cults, such as the Manson Family, and Jonestown, but this might be your first time reading the story of a vampire cult led by Marcus Wesson. The members of this cult were members of Wesson’s own family. This is an unsettlingly, graphic account of the real-life tragedy that took place in 2004.
The details are so unbelievable, they seem like a work of fiction, yet they are all true. Perhaps you haven’t heard of this vampire cult, the murders involved, or the name Marcus Wesson, but after reading this story, you are guaranteed to never forget.
Marcus Wesson clearly created confusion and chaos in every life he touched. It would be easy to get lost in the complex relations he created – but Mr. Becker does an excellent job of laying out each relationship, each person, and their connections so that you don’t get lost in the maze of Marcus Wesson.
To be honest, I have read two other very lengthy novels on Marcus Wesson and the carnage he bestowed on his family! Although they were very informative they left me with a lot of questions. By reading this book by Ryan Becker a lot of the questions were answered because he laid the story out in layman’s terms so that it would be quite understandable!
