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.

Would recommend, the end can be triggering though

I was really gripped by this story, initially I thought it was going to be a pompous over the top nonsense type of story but I stuck with it in bed at night, the acting was really good and I have a very vivid imagination which this sparked so well I could image every detail in my mind as though I was watching it rather than just listening, but it had a better feel being able to go into my imagination as I suffer from anxiety and like being able to actually escape into my own mind rather than feel trapped in it, it’s a welcome relief as I said until the end and personally finding it quite triggering via emotions, but I would defo recommend listening to this and it’s free so why not!

Really engulfing, very interesting, enjoyed it.

You simply couldn't have predicted the twists and turns, all consuming, engulfing, difficult to stop listening.

Intriguing

Only listened to the first episode so far but I’m already hooked. It’s a good pace, gives a back history so I feel well informed & intrigued to move onto the next episodes
