Perfect.

It is a great report on a real case, that kept me hooked throughout every minute. I am Argentinian, and I had only overheard about it, ot was too complex to get it easily, but here it is perfectly developed. Descriptions, voice recordings, the sounds of the forest... Translations were not perfect, they should get a professional interpreter to do them next time, but it didn't interrupt my enjoymtent

Thoroughly engrossing murder mystery

A tragic story about a man who tried to protect what he loved and those he loved from the horrible corrupt sadists we have in this world. Delivered in an engaging way

Fascinating insight into a tragic event

Told with a good understanding of the language and culture of Argentina, this tale held my interest from beginning to end. The narrator was excellent, not a hint of melodrama, just the facts put together in a way that created a satisfying listening experience.

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.

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
