I can’t get past chapter 2

I spent chapter one complaining at my phone because of the absolutely shameful behaviour of the journalists harassing a man because they somehow thought they had a 'right' to intrude upon his personal space and pressure him into giving an interview! Chapter 2... Long drawn out, unpleasant and tedious, certainly I don't want to hear any more! I also find the background noise overdone and most annoying!

Probably the worst podcast series ever!

Dreadfully dull. Quite why Audible has offered this for free is a mystery far greater than any contained within this series. Awful narrator - who sounds like a cross between Nick Hornby and Steve 'interesting' Davis. Just terrible.

Why was this crap put into my list

How do I get rid of it? How do I stop things being put in that I don’t want in future!

Wonderful!

A sad but gripping story of murder and swindle. Sat down and finished it in one go.

I use this as a sleep story

Nearly two episodes in and I'm still not clear on the true crime element, so far just a boring review of a boring business? Maybe a slow builder but I'm not going to find out I'm afraid, yawn.

Could have been so much better

I found it hard to stay with this. The story is told with no real structure (particularly the first 2 episodes) and all the interesting or ‘plot twist’ are given away far too early so when it comes to that part in the story- you already know. Had it been told better, it could have been so much more.

Captivating!

Couldn’t stop listening to it once I’d started. A really sad and heartbreaking story that needs to be exposed and broadcast! Journalism at its finest!

An incredible tale

So sad that such an unassuming man and his brother’s wife were killed for his land. The whole story is winding and almost unbelievable. The production is very well done
