Thrilling

We listened to the whole season in one go - couldn’t stop we were so riveted! Fascinating story.

Interesting series, well-produced and researched

This is a great podcast, terrifying what can happen to what seems like perfectly normal people by bringing a stranger into their lives. The narrative is well constructed and the story is related brilliantly.
