This is startling, clever, and quite, quite different. ‘Six Stories’ isn’t that long, but it packs a mighty wallop. In 1997 teenager Tom Jeffries was found dead at an outward bound centre, in 2017 investigative journalist Scott King releases podcasts relating to the death, six interviews, six different perspectives on what happened. The moment I started to read, the descriptions landed like a lightening strike on my awareness, setting the scene completely. This feels so original, Matt Wesolowski places Simon King’s voice in italics, the other voices are introduced, clearly individual and distinctive, so that I could hear them talking in my mind. I was aware of the tension building, aware that something was coming towards me at a rate of knots. I was constantly listening, judging, thinking. ‘Six Stories’ is a skilfully written tale, it prods, provokes, and also thoroughly entertains. ~ Liz Robinson A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher... 'Two years ago, I was on the Pitch Perfect Panel at Bloody Scotland, which offers and opportunity for aspiring crime writers to pitch to a panel of experts. Matt Wesolowski was one of these writers, and his proposal for Six Stories was my pick of the lot. Not only was I intrigued by the concept of a book written in the form of Serial-style podcasts, but the setting, in the Northumbrian fells, rich with myth and legend, transfixed me. Several months later, Matt sent me the manuscript for consideration, and let’s just say that an offer was made within hours. Six Stories is a fresh, original, compelling, utterly terrifying and beautifully written thriller, with extraordinarily vivid characters who not only leap from the page, but are startlingly authentic in voice and manner. Both an up-to-the-minute concept and an excellent – almost old-fashioned murder mystery – Six Stories is exquisitely described and perfectly wrought. So which of the six witnesses’ stories is true? The answer will astonish you. Absolutely mesmerising. ~ Karen Sullivan, Orenda Books Books in The Six Stories Series: 1. Six Stories 2. Hydra 3. Changeling 4. Beast Serial Reader?
