Exceptional

Excellent investigative journalism..very thorough, detailed, chronologically laid out. Fascinating, listening to the podcast was like reading a good book; couldn't stop listening. Thanks.

The Hurricane Tapes

Really put the flesh on a case on the fringes of my life, coming in and out of sight as a Jersey resident since 1972. Good investigative job.
However, this was not the most notorious and important murder mystery in New Jersey history. That distinction belongs to the Lindbergh baby kidnapping and murder.
