Summary

Famous musician William Hamilton, vanished from the Maleny Hinterlands in 1994 under puzzling circumstances — no one has seen or heard from him since. When two podcasters, Adam and Simon, decide to solve the 25-year-old mystery, they travel with Lilly, William’s youngest daughter, to the secluded Hamilton estate for a long weekend. Lilly has granted the pair unprecedented access to the reclusive Gloria, William’s wife, who hasn’t given an interview since he disappeared. But when they arrive, they find Gloria in a state of mental decline and they’re not the only ones searching for answers. Lilly’s older sister, Norah – a musician who lives in the shadow of her absent father – is desperate to discover the truth from Gloria before it’s lost for good. Yet William’s sister Rachel is fiercely uncooperative and there even seems to be an intruder on the property. The deeper Adam and Simon get with their investigation, the more the lines between voyeur and subject become blurred. As events reach a shattering climax, it becomes clear that somebody is willing to go to violent lengths to uncover the dark secrets at the heart of this famous family....

A Gripping Mystery

The interwoven original music is a beautiful addition to this intriguing thriller. Wonderfully written, it hooks you in with complex characters and great performances. I was desperate for answers and it delivered!

Brilliant!

As an avid listener of true crime and non fiction podcasts, I loved this! Hybrid between fiction and reality. Very talented writers, creators, producers etc.

Captivating Original Thriller

Easy to forget this murder-mystery isn't a true story. Beautifully performed by the cast and written and produced in a way that blurs the line between real-life and fiction with unnerving ease. A great listen!

Couldn't recommend it more!

I normally refrain from leaving message through sheer apathy ; however, this story had me hooked all the way along. It was brilliant to escape to, well performed, great music and a good tied up ending.

Thought it was great until it got stupid

No spoilers ! The story was great until a big reveal that was just dumb.

One of the best stories - absolutely loved it

I genuinely thought it was a real life story. So much so that I googled it after I finished only to learn its fiction. There were times I just wanted to google for answers but so glad I did not do it. Smooth listening and its been added to my favourites.

Hooked from beginning to end

This is such a captivating listen, I was hooked. Almost convinced it could of been a true crime audible I was listening too, so realistic and well written, the end chapters was everything I needed and more.
