Narration terrible

Narration annoying and wrong tone for this true murder story.

Interesting story, BUT a REAL challenge to get thru with the narrator.

KevinDreamsicle ,

Wrong tone…

Agree 100% with the previous review regarding the tone of the show…I wanted to keep listening because the story sounds so interesting, but the tone/descriptions of events, etc was so distracting that I had to stop unfortunately. A real bummer when the story itself seems so good…

caw caw im a hovering duck ,

Great storytelling!

The narration is exemplary!
This should be a miniseries.
