The Vampire Killers

A Horrifying True Story of Bloodshed and Murder

Clifford L. Linedecker

St. Martin's Paperbacks

When eighteen-year-old Jennifer Wendorf returned home one evening, she was witness to the most horrific scene she would ever set eyes upon: her own parents' brutally bludgeoned bodies. It was later discovered that both Richard and Naoma Wendorf each received over twenty ferocious blows to the head.

As this atrocious crime came to light, so too did many troubling questions: Who, in a quiet Florida town, could harbor such hatred toward the genial couple? Where was the Wendorfs' troubled fifteen-year-old daughter, Heather? And could this ungodly murder be connected to Heather's friends, a bizarre group of teens who were obsessed with blood drinking and other vampire rituals?

Read with fascination as police track down the renegade teens, extract their startling confessions, and watch as bestselling author Clifford Linedecker uncovers the twisted tale in a true-crime case as shocking as any fiction...
