Deity by Matt Wesolowski
About The Book
When pop megastar Zach Crystal dies in a fire at his remote mansion, his mysterious demise rips open the bitter divide between those who adored his music and his endless charity work, and those who viewed him as a despicable predator, who manipulated and abused young and vulnerable girls.
Online journalist, Scott King, whose ‘Six Stories’ podcasts have become an internet sensation, investigates the accusations of sexual abuse and murder that were levelled at Crystal before he died. But as Scott begins to ask questions and rakes over old graves, some startling inconsistencies emerge. Was the fire at Crystal’s remote home really an accident? Why was he never officially charged? Are reports of a haunting really true?
Dark, chillingly topical and deeply thought-provoking, Deity is both an explosive, spine-chilling thriller and a startling look at how heroes can fall from grace and why we are willing to turn a blind eye to even the most heinous of crimes…
Read this book now! Yes, this is my review if you want a direct and short review, behind there’s a larger one, but the only thing you have to stick with is that you should read it, believe me, it’s worth it.
I’ve been following the Podcast series from Matt Wesolowski since the first book and I think that each book is better than the previous one; dark, original and twisted. Each book has a special theme to make you rethink the world we are living in and how many things are wrong in it.
This time is the heroes/stars that we all love to look from the afar and that we keep forgiving their wrongs while we adore them. I’ll admit that I’ve never been interested in the stars’ personal life, I know that I am a minority, but I don’t think I need to know about them. Mainly, when I discover something about them I stop following because I don’t like what I am reading or listening about. This is the story of a pop megastar called Zach Crystal, he passed away on a fire in his property, but some things from his past were never questioned. Now, it’s time to revise the case thanks to our favorite journalist, Scott King, who he will show us the story within 6 podcast stories, he never “solves” the case, he lets the listener decide what really happened.
I really don’t want to talk much about the story, it’s much better if you let Scott King tell the story in his own way and pace, it’s so addictive! Deity is an atmospheric and dark read, if you haven’t tried any of the previous, start from this one if you want, but believe me, you’ll search the previous, they are this good!
