Wow

Wow. Just wow. Fantastic storytelling and a truly amazing and eye opening look at life. So glad I found it.

Waste of time

It starts strong and obviously produced very well but after the second or third episode, it’s just a story of people bickering over valuable possessions. Not much of a murder mystery. I listened to every episode waiting for something to happen. Disappointed
