Critic Reviews

Score: 3.5

The Crime Writers Squad • Crime Writers On Sep 22, 2022

"The stories about the scandals in the publishing industry were very interesting, but they felt incomplete. The details about the alleged misdeeds were conspicuously missing. It's a good series, but it may leave you doing additional research."


Score: 4.4

Ximena Smith • Stuff NZ Sep 18, 2022

"While such wider questions are of course noble and important to ask, I found that they often seemed to fall short and have a dissatisfying conclusion in Missing Pages...With that in mind, I’d advise approaching this series as a source of fun and entertainment, rather than anything deeper. …"

Nicholas Quah • Vulture Aug 17, 2022

"It’s plenty fun, almost trashy fun, and definitely interesting if you’re into the material. You might get some satisfaction from how the series tries to build out a larger argument, or indictment, about the publishing industry’s many sins; that element of the show can be hit or miss. Glad they’re there, though."

Keelin • Mentally? A Magpie. Aug 15, 2022

"In some ways a true crime “who done it”, we are taken on a familiar feeling path where a case is built and defense is made. This is an easy story to follow, tying in some current events for a full understanding of the elite world we are talking about. Missing Pages won’t be the podcast for everyone - the polish just isn't as lustrous as others. It’s a good one to try if you want a mystery without death or some insight into the darker sides of the publishing industry."
