Excellent series with a terrific cast....I’m now watching this for a second time it’s so riveting!
Enjoyed it immensely; casting Gregory Byrne is never a mistake.
Riveting. Gabriel Byrne captivates in every scene he's in. I wasn't sure how this was going to end until the final moments. Great mini-series!
