Started off well but it just goes on and on repeating the same bits of information. Couldn’t make it to the end.

Alison is tenacious as ever. I enjoyed this podcast and hope that Sue will get a satisfactory resolution to her sister’s death. A little too much unnecessary repetition of the same facts over and over in my opinion to give 5 stars but worth listening to nonetheless
Ken257430 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/30/23
This is THE worst true crime pod cast I’ve ever listened too. The novelist (as she is obviously a fiction writer) was so biased in her reporting and editing of this. At no time did she give any balance to the story. She fuelled the delusion of the poor grieving sister of the victim. The sister...Read full review »

Detailed podcast, well organised and presented. It is a shame it is spoilt by intrusive, irritating music that overlays the speech, especially when detailed facts are presented.

Far too much build up before giving us any actual information
Patricia B R via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/26/23
Well produced and extremely interesting. Worth a listen
David Rhys via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/22/23
I feel very sorry for the family that they lost a loved one, but this is definitely not a murder. Journalism absolutely trashing police and making a story out of something that really just isn’t there. This was a suicide with a desperate family trying to blame someone for the death. Sad, but...Read full review »

Really enjoying the presentation of this mystery. It is however deeply and profoundly unsettling to hear QLD Police describe family members as mentally ill and declaring that the investigations should not be questioned. History clearly tells us that they should be questioned as regularly as...Read full review »

Sadly too much music and sound effects. Disrespectful, as it shows that this is for entertainment not answers for families.
FiLovesBooks via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/07/23
Excellent to see this podcaster withstand the “nothing to see here” blowtorch. The way they painted the dead woman’s sister as mentally ill for keeping asking questions is appalling.
Claudecrowe via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/30/23
Amazing investigative work and great storytelling.
Megan D 45 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/23
Im speaking here as a criminal lawyer, its amazing to me to see how this journalist can be so openly biased. Ive never listened to her other podcast but it is evident to me she wants to reproduced what happened on it in this other case. She’s throwing out accusations on completely biased...Read full review »

Another really sad story and I feel it has been affected by Police inadequacies and mishandling of the crime scene. Their aggressive manner to cover their arses is abhorrent actions and I’m pleased you have been able to bring this to light for the family
Auwombat via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/29/23
Big USA fan of The Lady Vanishes. This podcast is not up to that standard. It unfortunately preys on the guilt of the sister of a woman who killed herself and on a poorly executed police investigation. They try to twist immaterial open questions (ownership of the gun) or facts (the prior child...Read full review »

Thank goodness for the grit and determination of Alison Sandy to broadcast the atrocities and failings in police investigations/ coronial inquest into the very suspicious death of Gwen Grover. What a great person to have in your corner when people are faced with overbearing and overriding...Read full review »

I really enjoy true crime and cold case stuff. This one feels like the journalist is really trying to make something out of not much.
hbuesnvv via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/18/23
Started off promising but now find this podcast a bit drawn out. Lots of repeat information and, what feels like, padding out to make an episode.
Jules10092 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/17/23
If the rude, aggressive policeman who shouted over the narrator’s attempts to speak to him and listened instead he might have learned something. Fortunately he has retired as he is obviously a dinosaur - demonstrated by his insistence that despite the procedures not having being followed the...Read full review »

Has anyone considered that maybe the 19 year old that found the body saw she was dead and reached in to take her handbag which knocked her over and he dropped the bag on top of the seat?
DOEHEAD453 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/17/23
Excellent again. Such good reporting by Alison Sandy. I listened to every episode of the Lady Vanishes too and am convinced that podcasts like these make a difference. The Teacher’s Pet got a conviction after 40 years and Shandee’s Story led to an investigation into the Forensic Laboratory in qld.
bub_by via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/17/23
Leave it to the professional journalists Alison.
Sckrizie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/16/23
Amazing investigating. Great podcast Alison. Ed Kimbacker seems very sure and a bit suspicious to me.
historiesmysteries via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/12/23
Wow! What hope do victims and victim’s families have with people like retired Detective Ed Kinbacher. Disgraceful! What an appalling attitude towards families trying to find peace and truth. Keep fighting for truth wherever that may lead.
DeeH1971 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/09/23
Enjoyed ‘The Lady Vanishes’ and this podcast also seems very interesting. It is right this case is looked at again and that justice is sought for Gwen. However, perhaps there is a need to reflect on the out-dated terminology and language used around suicide so as not to perpetuate stigma...Read full review »

Great podcast but as for your pre podcast asking people to contact Lifeline if it’s triggering, I have called them and can never get through to anyone. Not your fault, just saying
suzep71 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/05/23
This podcast -in my opinion- illustrates the snowball effect of many errors of procedure. There are some concerning attitudes that seem defensive rather than reflective- from police that is. Unexplored inconsistencies abound in witnesses evidence and statements. While, as another reviewer...Read full review »

Interesting and well researched Podcast. Thank-you.
Quince 1234 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/02/23
Sadly I don’t think this podcast will give Gwen’s family any answers. The presenters are exaggerating discrepancies from witnesses for a tragedy that happened 38 years ago. Some minor discrepancies are repeated ad nauseum.
C Beanie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/01/23
This podcast is interesting enough but the language used concerning suicide is outdated and insensitive. The presenter refers several times (I’ve only listened to a couple of episodes) to Evelyn “committing suicide”. That phrase is very outdated, stigmatising and has associations to suicide...Read full review »
Christie1978 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/30/23
What a waste of my time. Why would channel 7 waste everyones time with a case that is clearly a suicide! Surely there are so many better cases they could have looked at where there was actual evidence to support their stance. Don’t bother listening.
Gameadict_ via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/29/23
I enjoyed this to begin with but has now become highly biased
Maddloe via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/28/23
Great podcast. You deserve a medal for not crumbling under that defensive tirade of nonsense of a police man - I’ll never understand why women copped the hysterical mantra when we see the attempted intimidation of women by hysterical men over and over. Keep up the good work.
Vikkiiiiiiii via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/28/23
The ‘journalist’ underestimates her listener’s intelligence and is clearly biased and not impartial at any point during the podcast and tries to lead the listeners opinions towards her bias. She is nice to their face when she is interviewing witnesses that aren’t on ‘her side’ and then criticises...Read full review »

I this is the second podcast I’ve listened to with Alison Sandy and I find her combative style really annoying and doesn’t demonstrate impartiality. Others are not obliged to answer your questions just because you asked no matter how compelling your case. The same demanding attitude was...Read full review »

I wish these woman who do these podcasts would learn to speak correctly, you get the silly croaky voice and one girl kept saying “matta instead of matter” they are journalists 🙄
Misty1958 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/27/23
I was really looking forward to this podcast but I am finding it repetitive and tedious. The host is just annoying and instead of it being investigative, it seems to be just a criticism of the initial investigation.
sar_27 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/27/23
Episode 7…me thinks Ed protests too much…..
TanyaSawyer via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/26/23
You can tell the good ones from the start - from the drag of the cig, to the music in the background- then the gunshot…. Who has the manners to call Ron Iddles an amateur!!!

Suicide is an extraordinarily difficult event for loved ones. For some, they may never be able to accept that someone they loved decided to end their life. This podcast has not presented any credible evidence of homicide. A substandard police investigation (if that is even the case) is not...Read full review »

Boeing747 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/24/23
To really present a viable alternative to Gwen taking her own life there needs to be more. Intuition of family members, criticism of the initial investigation, criticism of the reconstruction and reliance on statistics isn’t enough. Real, credible and plausible alternatives might come as a result...Read full review »

So many cases in Australia of women killed by partners/ex partners and no-one brought to justice. This is a great podcast and let’s hope the truth comes out in the end.
MrsMeagan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/21/23
Not a patch on the last vanishes. I find the episodes tedious and dull.
LittlestLegs via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/21/23
There is so much biased and magical thinking in this it’s just ridiculous. You can show these people that the sky is blue they can see it with a very own eyes and they still won’t believe it their minds are made up. When there is a lack of evidence it allows people to put in whatever they like to...Read full review »

I’m enjoying parts of this series, especially all the voices from the people involved. The host’s voice and pacing is annoying, and her intent to prove a point, rather than explore it as a possibility, makes something complex and interesting simplistic and lacking nuance.
