[Contains Mature Themes] This much we do know: Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered days before Christmas in 1996, her broken body discovered at the edge of her property near the town of Schull in West Cork, Ireland. The rest remains a mystery.
Gripping, yet ever elusive, join the real-life hunt for answers in the year’s first not-to-be-missed, true-crime series. Investigative journalist, Sam Bungey, and documentarian, Jennifer Forde, guide listeners through the brutal, unsolved murder and the tangled web of its investigation, while introducing an intricate cast of characters, a provocative prime suspect, and a recovering community whose story begs to be heard.

A Riveting Account of An Ongoing Mystery
Not only would I listen to it again, I'm urging everyone I know to listen as well. As one who lives in West Cork and who is broadly familiar with the case, I've learned much that I'd not been aware of. For now I've given the podcast 4 stars under the three headings because I'm only a few episodes into it but I have a hunch I'll turn them into 5's by the end.
This is an exceptionally well-produced and well-written podcast. Bungey and Forde, the producers, deserve all the praise that will surely come their way.
