Publisher's Summary

A woman disappears on her way to work. A man is convicted of her murder. But this case is different. Though the police believe they have the right man, key components of the prosecution case are missing. There is no body of the victim, no witnesses to the crime, no confession and no physical evidence: no DNA, CCTV or murder weapon.

Journalists and TV producers Darrell Brown and Sophie Ellis examine the extraordinary case of Suzanne Pilley, a woman who vanished whilst on her way to work in Edinburgh in 2010. The pair has spent two years investigating the case and speaking exclusively to David Gilroy - the man who was found guilty of killing Suzanne and disposing of her body. He is currently serving a life sentence in a Scottish jail.

But Gilroy says he is innocent: victim of a miscarriage of justice.

Darrell and Sophie are not so sure. They explore Gilroy’s claims that the investigation and trial were mishandled, that key pieces of evidence were not presented in court and witnesses were not contacted.

The pair uncover startling information, not heard in court, that might have changed the minds of the jury. And they shine a light on aspects of the Scottish criminal justice system that might be keeping an innocent man behind bars.

Interesting and Shocking

Very intriguing story of justice and injustice that changes lives and affects so many. Questioning the justice or lack there of, the search for truth remains out of our grasp. From the start the police focus on one individual and never explore other possibilities. It leaves me with many questions. I recommend this series to anyone interested in ‘who-done-it’ podcasts/novels.

Good but needed more

I was expecting a different ending. I felt that the story is inconclusive. Needed more.

Riveting

The miscarriage of justice in this case is so appalling! Investigative journalism at its best! I just had to binge listen, especially being from Edinburgh!!

I was hoping they'd finish it

The story is good and all. I just had a problem with the ending. I was expecting them to at least speak of whatever happened after the appeal.

Very Biased

I hadn't heard of this case before and went it with no ideas of the convicted's guilt or innocence. The hosts claim to be trying to be neutral, but talking to the convict they believe everything he tells them with very little skepticism. They go out of their way to prove his claims are correct, but no attempt to disprove him really.

Did I miss something?

This story is not finished. Did I miss a few chapters? This is not quite the story I had expected at all. I am left hanging....

Good story.

The presentation felt very "British" in how audio was cut, overlaid. The story is leading and format present facts up front, but slowly introduces then to keep you listening. That last fact is irritating, but lengthens the episodes. Worth listening to though. 8/10

So desperate for counter argument!

I find this SHAMELESS. That poor family. I hope they never have to listen to this ridiculous defense of their daughter’s murderer.
