Yes, I enjoyed so many of the characters and would love to listen again to see if I can pull out clues that I overlooked during the first listen. I found the writing to be very rich, outstanding dialogue

I enjoyed the testimony scene from Dr. Matheson's mother.
Could definitely see this as a feature film!
