Holy wow does Deborah need intensive therapy. Well-told but incredibly frustrating. Everyone sounds like they're from E! News but I guess that's because it takes place in LA.

Description

Debra Newell is a successful interior designer. She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders. But her family doesn’t like John, and they get entangled in an increasingly complex web of love, deception, forgiveness, denial, and ultimately, survival. Reported and hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times.

One lawyer saw a broken system. But the system saw a vigilante killer.
