Demon Matt Wesolowski 4*#Review @ConcreteKraken @OrendaBooks @RandomTTours #BlogTour #BookReview #Demon #Possession #ChillingWinterTales

In 1995, the picture-perfect village of Ussalthwaite was the site of one of the most heinous crimes imaginable, in a case that shocked the world.  Twelve-year-old Sidney Parsons was savagely murdered by two boys his own age. No reason was ever given for this terrible crime, and the  ‘Demonic Duo’ who killed him were imprisoned until their release in 2002, when they were given new identities and lifetime anonymity. 

Elusive online journalist Scott King investigates the lead-up and aftermath of the killing, uncovering dark and fanciful stories of demonic possession and encountering a village torn apart by this unspeakable act. 

And, as episodes of his Six Stories podcast begin to air, King himself becomes a target, with dreadful secrets from his own past dredged up and threats escalating to a terrifying level. It becomes clear that whatever drove those two boys to kill is still there, lurking, and the campaign of horror has just begun…

I received a copy of this book from Orenda Books in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This is the first book I have read in the ‘Six Stories’ series. The story has a contemporary and distinctive podcast format that tells the story from six perspectives. The story explores a horrific crime involving children that is disturbing to read. Atmospheric and intense, it immerses the reader in events from all perspectives. It’s a seamless blend of crime, social dysfunction and prejudices with supernatural elements woven into the viewpoints. It’s a story that draws you in, one you read, even though many aspects are horrific to contemplate. It’s an addictive mix of criminal and mystical events that defy explanation.
