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.

Customer Reviews of Six Stories: A Thriller


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique and Creepy Six Stories packs a lot of punch in a short novel. Told in the form of podcasts, Six Stores sets out to unravel the mysterious death of Tom Jeffries 20 years after the body is found. Tom goes missing on an outdoors weekend in the murky woodlands of Scarclaw Falls, and a year later, his body is found in the swamp. Shrouded by legends and teen angst, his death is ruled an accident until the truth is uncovered, podcast style. This novel is a slow burn – the first podcast absolutely freaked me out (and I don’t scare easily). The next few interviews held a bothering ambiguity – would we find out the truth behind Tom’s death? Do monsters really exist? There are a few twists towards the end but nothing shocking or new in the thriller-esque genre. Overall, a solid read – I think it could have been edgier and perhaps a touch more complex, but it certainly offered a unique and modern perspective and delivery. Thank you to Netgalley and Orenda Publishing for an advanced reading copy. #plumreview
