Thrilling and enjoyable

Great series about an interesting real life story full of drama and intrigue. Great length of podcast episodes and series length!

Painful to listen to

A great story ruined by an unwillingness to use proper tenses to tell it. This works fine for narrating a visual story but leaves you with just a fraction of the available language weaponry and descriptive power when applied to an audio medium. I was half expedting it to deteriorate into 'and he was like..., and she was like....'

Such a shame to ruin such an exciting story, not help by the ridiculously short episode length either, as soon as you get into it, it's gone.

I was looking forward to this, so disappointed.

Excellent podcast

I love podcasts and some of them are really hit and miss but you end up listening to them just to find out what happens.

Not this one, this is a really gripper and I could not stop listening to it.

Brought to you by the people who brought Ratline, also excellent.
