Blurb; 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.
My Review; I have to admit I came into this series at book two and even admitted that to Matt himself. I got his forgiveness. I have now gone back to where the Six Stories series started and boy was it brilliant, the whole series is. It’s a series that just gets better and better. I love them all.
Six Stories follows the death of a boy while away with a group. But what really happened that night? We get different stories and points of views to piece it all together from those that were there. However I must say in this story we actually get an answer whereas in the rest of the series it’s left for the reader to decide for themselves. Brilliantly written. Gripping. Thrilling. Chilling outcome. Brilliant. Matt hasnt disappointed me yet.
A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.
