Good first season, the second is questionable.

Great series well presented. A little disappointed in season 2, don’t know why a convicted rapist has so many women falling over themselves to help him, and meanwhile, the murder victim fades into the background. Surely there are people out there, far more worthy of help.

Riveting

I binged listener to this, it was hard not to! If you enjoyed Sword, Up & Vanished & Serial, you should enjoy this too.

Terrible journalist

I thought the journalist and narrator investigating skills this were awful. She was insensitive and abrupt in her questioning and I often found myself cringing at how uncomfortable she made the people she was interviewing feel. I don’t think this case should have been exploited like this and give false hope to a family grieving. I also don’t know how this won an award for writing because it was terrible.
