Wow, poor Matt, this kid has been through some stuff! First, his older brother is convicted of murder and then featured on a highly rated documentary that seems to point to shoddy police work and a coerced confession. Then the rest of his family is murdered on a trip to Mexico. We find out the only one in his family that wasn’t obsessed of trying to overturn his brothers conviction and that just may be the reason he is still alive. His entire involvement in all the investigations is peripheral but we see the turmoil it creates in his life.
I would call this one more of a mystery than a thriller. But I really liked it that it didn’t go with the trope of throwing 50 red herrings at you on the guise of being “twisty.” Instead it had a metered approach to revealing little clues along the way. The action of the characters took were entirely plausible and there were not any overly reckless people or amazing superhero geniuses that are so common today in these stories.
I did figure out who did it and some semblance of what lead to the falling of the dominoes but I think that’s because there were good clues along the way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
