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. (From Amazon)
* I received this book for free, in exchange of an honest review and to participate in the blog tour, hosted by Orenda Books.*
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
What a creepily fantastic book! And man, that curve-ball thrown at the very end, WOW! Didn’t see that one coming. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I was so engrossed, I had to fight myself to stop reading it. I was literally lost in this book, and once I did put it down, I had to just sit back and think for a moment, of how this book could possibly end. I was so worried that it was going to end in the typical fashion. But I was so pleasantly surprised.
You guys, once this book is released June 1st, 2017. You need to pick it up, and fall under its spell. I promise you, you will not regret it.
Don’t fear the dark, dear, swift is the night,
for nothing will harm you, wrapped up here, tight.
That’s just a shadow, dear don’t fear a sprite,
Don’t pay your mind to the tricks of the light. -Matt Wesolowski
