    Maree recuperates, and suspects she was poisoned. But she has sunk so much money into the boat she tries to play nice with Damien until she can get back to the boat, and end their marriage. On the boat, an "accident" occurs, which nearly kills Maree, and which she believes was not an accident. It's ultimately just a prelude, though, to what happens next... as Maree faces a terrifying final confrontation with Damien that will end things, once and for all.

Tough But Entertaining Listen

It can be hard to reconcile how people stay in toxic situations but it happens all the time. A crazy but unfortunately probably more common than we want to think situation. The podcast kept me clicking to the next episode for sure.

Compelling but…

How many times does a man have to show you who he is before you believe him??? How many times does he need to attempt murder before you cut your losses and run? Geeze.

This woman is a masochist. She acts sooooo surprised each time he very obviously tries to murder her. “Oh silly me didn’t think anything of it”. I couldn’t finish the last episode.
