Stories of revenge and betrayal where murders are carried out by people who the victims were closely linked to, from coworkers and neighbors to lovers and family members.
Presented as relatable true-life mysteries, the heart of each show is motive: beginning with how the killer and victim first met, how their relationship deepened, the perceived betrayal, and the near-obsessive dynamic that builds to the climactic moment when one of them commits murder. Each episode opens with the hook of a dramatic crime scene but provides no details, plunging viewers into a dark mystery. Then, the storyline tracks the background of the main characters, their relationship and the events that lead them to the moment of the crime. Viewers follow along with the twists and turns of the investigation, the arrest and the final verdict that ultimately leads to justice
