Description : The "Vampire Clan" was a loosely knit gang of Southern U.S. teenagers who played at being outcasts and goths, and then pretended to be vampires. The twisted fantasies and dark mind of their young leader, Rod Ferrell, dominate The Embrace. Aphrodite Jones wastes no time in getting inside the troubled 16-year-old's head, detailing his elaborate delusions (he sometimes claims to be 500 years old; at other points, he was born 60,000 years ago and "sent to earth to destroy it") and his eerie abilities to control other troubled souls. With a Jim Jones-like knack for bizarre showmanship, Ferrell picked up followers and "true loves" with ease, then led his small, unmerry band on a mission from his home base in Kentucky to pick up yet another groupie--15-year-old Heather Wendorf--in Florida. The journey ended in violence in 1996, however, when Ferrell decided to kill Heather's parents with a crowbar. The group (Heather in tow) fled to New Orleans, where Rod promised his "vampire friends" would take them in; they were arrested a few days later. Ferrell, who now holds the record as the youngest inmate on death row, still insists he's the Antichrist. Jones's account is rather spare, but feels balanced and honest. Like untold thousands of other American youths, Ferrell had the requisite bad childhood and unpleasant memories to later cause him both melancholy and grief. But unlike most of his peers, Rod Ferrell seems to have been born with a genius intelligence and the ability to memorize names, accents, and customs from different eras and places with ease, along with a talent to "perform" what he claimed to be. That he also happened to be deranged shouldn't be overlooked, but the real tragedy and concern here is that there might exist a rip in the fabric of our society large enough to allow healthy, normal teenagers like his group to fall through the tear and into the arms of animalistic hucksters like Rod Ferrell. --Tjames Madison --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Description : On November 25, 1996, in Eustis, Fla., Ruth and Richard Wendorf were found bludgeoned to death in their home, with their youngest daughter, Heather, 15, missing. Jones (Cruel Sacrifice, etc.) portrays Heather as a lonely girl whose desire to transcend her "mundane," privileged life brought her under the influence of a charismatic monster who introduced her to an underground world of teenagers dressing in black, practicing ritual bloodletting and dreaming of traveling to Paris and New Orleans. Was Heather part of a gruesome execution planned by self-described vampires or a brainwashed victim seduced by pack leader Rod Ferrell? Jones makes a case for the latter, minimizing Heather's involvement in the murders ("She was without an ego"). While Jones claims to have used "proven sources of journalistic research," she does admit to altering "certain details" and taking "certain storytelling liberties." Jones seems to think Ferrell was just born mean, and she turns him into a larger-than-life character, calling him "the embodiment of insanity." Her entire account suffers from psychological na?vet?, as she appears to believe whatever HeatherAwho stands to inherit half a million dollars from her parents' deathAtells her and dismisses those who contradict the girl, including Heather's own sister. Jones provides a good overview of the facts surrounding the murder and her prose glows with a voyeuristic intensity, but she comes off as so wholly biased in favor of Heather, "the victim," that her presentation lacks full credibility. (June) FYI: Jones's All She Wanted is soon to be filmed with Drew Barrymore.

Description : With several best-sellers to her credit, including Cruel Sacrifice (1994), Jones returns with another expedition into teen true crime. The horror she investigates this time is the brutal murder of a husband and wife in a Florida suburb, perpetrated by Rod Ferrell, a magnetic, egocentric teenage vampire cultist, who lures a small group of troubled teens (among them the 15-year-old daughter of the murder victims) into a situation that forever changes their lives. The grisly circumstances are certainly right out of every parent's nightmare, with blood rituals, vampire role-playing, aberrant love, and dysfunctional family relationships, and it's the perfect stuff for true-crime writers. Unofortunately, Jones drops the ball. Although she draws on court records, news stories, and interviews to re-create the events leading up to and following the crime, her purple prose ("Only he could penetrate her inner sanctum"; "His strong arms made her melt"; "Rod filled her void"); clunky, confusing chronology; and reconstructed dialogue ("based on recollections of the participants") turn real-life tragedy into boring, almost absurd, melodrama. Expect some publicity-driven demand (and the inevitable TV movie), but most readers will find Jones much less satisfying than true-crime veterans Ann Rule (Bitter Harvest, 1998) and Joe McGinniss (Fatal Vision, 1983).

Description : Veteran crime writer Jones (All She Wanted, 1998, etc.) unravels a horrific double murder in central Florida made especially notorious by the involvement of a teen vampire cult, supposedly including the victims daughter, Heather Wendorf. Documenting ringleader Rod Ferrells trajectory from pretentious escapism to death row, this grisly, long-winded book directs sympathy toward the beleaguered gothic subculture while exploiting its milieu of blood-letting and ritualized depravity. Certainly, the seeming current plague of violence by disaffected youths is a subject for urgent discussion. However, a large portion of The Embrace is vague, repetitive, and muddled. Although Jones documents the unappetizing middle-American circumstancesabsent father, incompetent mother, drug and sexual abusethat had demolished Ferrells moral capacities by age 16, piecing this together entails wading through much unmediated fluff about teenage vampire fantasies. Jones, a journalist for 20 years, offers no critical judgments about the rickety dream universe constructed by Ferrell and his few acolytes. This approach cripples her capacity to address the complex implications of both this tragedy and the apparently complicit culture of fantasy violence bred from trailer-park anomie. The book improves markedly in its final sections, which detail the inevitable fury of law enforcement in punishing what turn out to be four pathetic, disenfranchised kids and one seductive psychopath. The fragility of civil liberties is evident in the Jim Thompson-esque fate of Heather Wendorf; held responsible by the cops, she was cleared of foreknowledge by two grand juries, yet was vilified in the court of Florida public opinion. The vengeful grief inspired in rural Lake County by Ferrells brutality demanded community condemnation not just of the murderers, but also of Heather, who appears to have been a victim rather than an instigator. Narrative rather than reflective, but readers who plow through to the end will get some sense of the shadowy fantasy lives of kids fallen through lifes cracks. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Resource : Book Description
Description : With an extraordinary talent for staring evil dead in the eye, New York Times bestselling author and journalist Aphrodite Jones plunges readers into the front lines of a modern nightmare. On November 25, 1996, in their home in the lakeside community of Eustis, Florida, Rick and Ruth Wendorf were savagely beaten to death with a tire iron. The Wendorfs' new Ford Explorer was stolen, but this was no routine robbery gone bad. This was a crime carried out by one Roderick Ferrell, a sixteen-year-old self-avowed Antichrist. His human sacrifice was a testament to the unique and sinister bond of four brainwashed teens. Heather Wendorf was a straight "A" student, a petite blonde with wide-set brown eyes. Yet she had been heard to wish her parents "off the face of the planet." Heather never dreamed that when she joined her friends for a joyride one fall evening, her wish had already come true. Including exclusive interviews with every living character involved in the case, The Embrace will forever change the way we look at one of the fastest-growing religious movements in the country, and its most vulnerable fold: our children.

Description : This book was one of the best I have ever read. It gives a very detailed look into what people can do. I don't believe in vampires the way we are told they look: turning people into vampires by drinking their blood or that they look like in horror movies e.g. The vampires I believe in are just the person's mind and fantasy transferring into reality, for example, Rod Ferrel and the cult.
