My Thoughts

 

Yes, this a mystery, but it goes deeper than that.  It's also about wanting something so bad that you would do just about anything to keep it.  What would you do to keep it???

 A thought provoking slow burning (which in the beginning is almost painfully slow) sus-mystifying-pence.  Yeah, sometimes I make-up my own words.  The narration is well done, especially for an English accent.  I was off-put at first; by the accent, but quickly adjusted to it.

Sex Factor:  While it has definite adult themes, there is no actual sex.
