Not the best

Basic story interesting but to many episodes and over produced #cringy

Hope over expectation

Really not sure Peter is any closer than me to finding Kevin but it’s entertaining listening. Possibly for not the right reasons.

Very disappointing

Really wanted this to be a good listen but it falls way short and quite frankly it turns out to be quite laughable.
A wild goose chase based on purely circumstantial evidence and the ego of the presenter. Searching for a murderer/gangster ( allegedly )who no one has seen for years and lots of people in the know saying he is dead but the Presenter knows he will find him. Guess what …… he doesn’t or as he would say he hasn’t. Lord Lucan must be worried!
