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 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, and King himself becomes a target of media scrutiny and the public’s ire, it becomes clear that whatever drove those two boys to kill is still there, lurking, and the campaign of horror has just begun…

  1. Vicky

    I really love the Six Stories series. They’re one of the only series I follow dilligently, and I’m always very excited when a new one comes out. This is another cracker. Meditating on outsiders in small rural communities, and on the effects of grief on children who may or may not be allowed to be children, I loved the different perspectives Wesolowski drew on in this story. It’s quite a tragic one, and the answer to the mystery is bitter-sweet. Not my favourite in the series, but still an excellent book and a quick read.
