1997. Scarclaw Fell. The body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found at an outward bound centre. 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 rivalled 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. And who’s to blame … 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. A chilling, unpredictable and startling thriller, Six Stories is also a classic murder mystery with a modern twist, and a devastating ending.
Told through a series of podcasts Six Stories looks back over a murder that happened 20 years ago.
Each week, Scott King interviews six prominent figures about what truly happened to fifteen year old Tom Jefferies.
This gripping and slightly intense tale is one of the most unique and original plot driven stories I have ever read. It is fabulously written, and is absolutely ‘unputdownable’. In fact every time I did, which wasn’t often – I read this novel in a record breaking four hours, I couldn’t wait to pick it back up.
Matt Wesoloski has written a gritty and arousing read.. full of mystery and atmospherically eerie.
The unveiling of the secrets, feelings and truths about Tom Jefferies death leads the reader scared and shaking to a brilliant ending.
It is a perfect escape novel.
I have read many brilliant reads from Orenda but Six Stories hits my TOP TWO.
