Mini Review: Six Stories by Matt Wesoloski

One body. Six Stories. Which one is true?

Aw man this book blew me away! Firstly I love the way it was told in interview form for a podcast with the interviewers thoughts throughout and then a personal account from Harry on what happened then and where he’s at now.

“1997. Scarclaw Fell. The body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found at an Outward Bound center. Verdict? Misadventure. But not everyone is convinced. And the truth of what happened in the beautiful but eerie fell is locked in the memories of the tight-knit group of friends who embarked on that fateful trip, and the flimsy testimony of those living nearby. 2017. Enter elusive investigative journalist Scott King, whose podcast examinations of complicated cases have rivaled the success of Serial, with his concealed identity making him a cult internet figure. In a series of six interviews, King attempts to work out how the dynamics of a group of idle teenagers conspired with the sinister legends surrounding the fell to result in Jeffries’ mysterious death. As every interview unveils a new revelation, you’ll be forced to work out for yourself how Tom Jeffries died, and who is telling the truth?”

I actually reckon the audiobook for this would be fantastic. It is incredibly atmospheric, creepy and sometimes downright scary. A boy goes missing and a year later he’s found dead. How did he die? We get to hear six stories, every story has a side and the more we hear the more intriguing things get. The more we find out what Tom was really like and eventually what happened to him.

I was lost for words at one point when it all started to come out. A bloody brilliant read! I have Hydra, his next book, on my kindle and ready to go. Loved this one!
