A Fascinating Look at a Murder

This was a true crime podcast about a low key Italian immigrant who wound up being the largest landowner in Argentina. He lived simply and frugally, but he had secrets. His valuable land eventually led to his murder by a diabolical madman. The aftermath dealt with his vast landholdings that eventually became a national park. A great listen for true crime lovers.

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.

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.

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!

A good bit of journalism

Like many people, I fascinated by crime and the apprehension of criminals but I cannot stand the glorified true crime "documentaries" that glamourise crime and try to make it exciting.

This was a really good bit of journalism, something sadly lacking in most quarters today. Plenty of background detail on the victim and criminal, touching on the crime just enough, the investigation and capture of the perpetrators and beyond.

A really enjoyable listen, despite the sad subject matter.

Interesting and well presented

Really interesting look at the wider implications of a murder. The presentation was excellent and about an area of the world I don't hear so much about.

Death in the Forest

Well narrated and produced but there was only really one suspect, and we didn't find out much about the victim.

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.

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.
