One body

Six stories

Which one is true?

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.

Customer Reviews

Ingenious, inventive, gripping, unique, all and more of these words could be used to describe this wonderfully suspenseful book. "Six Stories" by Matt Wesolowski was an utter pleasure to read that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was such a refreshing change to read a story that's told in a stunningly original and modern way using up to date media such as podcasts. It's amazing how quickly you are hooked into the fabulous narrative as soon as you start reading, it really is an attention grabbing plot. The body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found at an Outward Bound centre at Scarclaw Fell in 1997 and judged a misadventure - but not everyone is convinced. The truth of what happened in the beautiful but eerie fell is locked in the memories of a group of friends who embarked on that fateful trip. Ten years later elusive investigative journalist Scott King with his concealed identity and podcast examinations of complicated unsolved cases 'digging up the dead' makes him a cult internet figure. In a series of six podcast/interviews, King attempts to work out how the dynamics of a group of teenagers conspired with the sinister legends surrounding the fell to result in Jeffries’ mysterious death. As every interview unveils a new revelation, will what happened surrounding Jeffries' death be revealed and who is actually telling the truth? Living in North East England myself I found the Northumberland setting to the story very captivating and the author (who is also from the North East) is fantastic in describing Scarclaw Fell in such atmospheric detail you'd think you were standing amongst the trees, ferns, wildlife and woodland paths yourself. The characters are just brilliant and I loved how the story was told through each of the teenagers involved now they are adults. After hearing one recollection you just had to read the next, forming your own opinion and view on the tragedy that happened. I can see why "Six Stories" has so many glowing reviews, it truly is THAT good, guaranteeing to get under your skin. I also imagine the audible version will be fabulous too, its ready made for it. I also believe that YA readers would love this too with the angst teenager angle and without a doubt crime and mystery readers will devour this original and unique read. Packing a punch, gripping and compelling with tremendous story telling I can't recommend it enough and can't wait to read the latest instalment in the Scott King series "Hydra" which looks equally as exciting. 5 stars
