Captivating 8.25/10
23 March 2019 | by stevesmith-80860See all my reviews

As an American, I had never heard about this story before. I found the story extremely intresting. I was flabbergasted at the level of corruption in Mexico. It seems as if Mexico has no rule of law. The writing was very good. The acting was top notch, especially Alberto Guerra. This show had me captivated the entire time, I was glued to my seat. After I finished this show I was sad because I knew there were no more episodes.
