This book scratched quite a few itches for me. I have always been a fan of true crime, be it documentaries or podcasts. Needless to say if you are a fan of watching/listening to any either of those, this is definitely the book for you.

Matt Pine appears to come from one of the unluckiest families. Not only did most of his immediate family die while on vacation in Mexico, his only surviving sibling just happens to be the subject of a crime documentary due to what his family claims is false imprisonment for a crime he didn't commit, that of killing his girlfriend.

Matt who kept himself absent from the documentary suddenly finds himself thrust into wondering if his families death happens to some how be connected to his brothers crime.

The story jumps through a few different POVs in order to tell the story, but the ones that seemed to hold my attention the most were that of Matt and Sarah Keller (the FBI agent assigned to the whole thing). There were a few moments in the story that seemed like they were shoehorned into the story (Maggie at the party as an example) that seemed like if you removed them from the story entirely wouldn't have made a difference to the overarching story.

As for the mystery itself, I did figure out one of the perpetrators that were involved early on, I just couldn't figure out how or why until it was revealed.
