Swell by Kipp Poe Speicher
After finding a bloated body in the Coosca River we dive into evidence and unravel the story told through news reports and transcripts of chat logs of a sick and demented Child Predator.
Kipps stories are always short, brutal and to the point! This one is all that but also a little bit different. It's written through police reports and social media messaging at the beginning, which gives us a good idea of how things progress in the story, then the middle part is told from the perpetrators perspective, and finally we get things from the victims side! It's brilliantly done! It starts off with the finding of a dead body in a river, and then goes on to explain just how that body got there…. Once I realised what I was reading, it gave me a real feeling of dread. This was a hard hitting story, shocking and horrifying!! But what a fantastic fucking twist….I wasnt expecting that at all! A stark warning and a fantastic tale of revenge all rolled into one! I also wasn't expecting to play a part in this, but what a part, I think the best part….thank you Kipp!! Like I said, it was a tough read, but necessary, I think you needed to feel that discomfort to appreciate the ending! I was hoping for a good ending, what I actually got was a bloody brilliant ending! A very cathartic ending! It works really well, it takes you just enough out of your comfort zone, then slams you back in at the right moment making you feel fully satisfied with the end result! Great stuff….truly horrific!
