Stacy Keach is the man

Stacy Keach’s hard-boiled delivery is half the fun. The stories are well told and are always entertaining. Recommend if you are a fan of true crime or drama, but aren’t looking for anything too graphic.

Madoff Behind bars

The episode from April 14 was nauseating. Bernie Madoff is a malignant narcissistic, who robbed poor people , whose son committed suicide. You were way too easy on this horror person
