not yet rated|write a review

Neighbors were unaware of what went on behind the tightly closed doors of a house in Fresno, California—the home of an imposing, 300-pound Marcus Wesson, his wife, children, nieces, and grandchildren. But on March 12, 2004, gunshots were heard inside the Wesson home, and police officers responding to what they believed was a routine domestic disturbance were horrified by the senseless carnage they discovered when they entered.

By Their Father's Hand is a chilling true story of incest, abuse, madness, and murder, and one family's terrible and ultimately fatal ordeal at the hands of a powerful, manipulative man—a cultist who envisioned vengeful gods and vampires, and totally controlled those closest to him before their world came to a brutal and bloody halt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book Excellent book. Not for the week at heart. No child or family. Young people should have to live like this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Scary reality This book was appauling on so many levels, but that is what happens when it is a non-fiction reality. What this man did to his children and his family was disturbing abuse and control that he had. Keeping in mind that this story was told by an outside author. If what this book entails is true it is an awful story. It had to be told so that we are aware of the type of things that go on behind closed doors to families and children.
