WOW.... its a thriller but has all the right ingredients to get addicted to it.
8 July 2019 | by amarals-1See all my reviews

Can not say enough good things about this series. It has humor, thriller and got some sexy and well crafted photography as well. Brazilians have the famous Carnaval and soccer to be proud of besides the "telenovelas". Now they can be proud of a series that commands a great cast, writing and ingenuity in how it all put together creates a gravitational pull towards it whenever you watch a chapter it will drawn you to continue watching. Its a great series for 2019 and i hope Netflix will produce season 2 the same way done with season 1.
