    Adam Croft is joined again by Graham Bartlett on this episode of Partners in Crime.

    Graham tells us how crazy it has been during launch week for his new book Bad For Good, he reveals what not to do if you are driving a stolen car and the pair wonder what an episode co-hosted with Peter Shilton would be like.

    Adam has the shortlist for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year, talks about an upcoming detective television show called The Whites which stars Ethan Hawke, and reveals more Kobo book recommendations.

    We also hear that Adam is going on yet another holiday (someone's doing well), while Graham reveals he was a late spurter.

    Absolutely roasting

    Absolutely roasting

    On this week's episode of Partners in Crime, Adam Croft is joined once again by Graham Bartlett, former detective superintendent of Sussex Police.

    Unsurprisingly, the subject of real life crime is discussed again, with Adam sparking things off by mentioning a Daily Mail article about knife crime.

    Also in the episode, we hear about the McIlvanney Prize longlist courtesy of CrimeReads, Adam mentions a crime related episode of Who Do You Think You Are featuring Richard Osman, while Graham tells us we should all be watching BBC crime drama Sherwood.

    Adam also has a look at a Daily Record article which reveals the first names of people most likely to be criminals. So have a listen to hear if you're on it. And no, I'm not.

    Adam Croft is joined by author and former police commander for Brighton and Hove, Graham Bartlett, on this week's episode of Partners in Crime.
     


    The pair discuss Graham's debut novel Bad For Good, real police procedure versus dramatisation for books and television, and Graham gives us a frightening insight into the effects of real-life police funding cuts.
     


    We also hear about the journey from fighting crime for real, to inventing fictional crime stories, while Adam takes us through a CrimeReads article looking at crime novels with a strong sense of place and inimitable atmosphere.

    Adam Croft returns from his holiday with another solo episode of Partners in Crime.
     


    We hear that he is very tanned, Bob is still away doing a proper job somewhere and there are some exciting changes coming to the podcast very soon.
     


    In the crime stuff , Adam tells us about Gillian McAllister's new book, he goes through a CrimeReads article focusing on the most unforgettable female leads in crime fiction and also looks at their books of the month.
     


    Amazingly, Adam doesn't mention his new book this time, but he does tell us about a couple of Kobo recommendations that you can see below.

    Adam Croft is back with another episode of Partners in Crime for your listening pleasure.
     


    This week, Adam tells us about his trip to the theatre, he's looking forward to going on holiday and we missed the chance to give Bob the bumps for his birthday.
     


    In crime fiction news, we hear about a panel being hosted by award-winning author Stuart Neville in Armagh (follow the link below to book tickets), ten reasons why Victorian England is the perfect setting for murder according to Crime Reads and Adam reveals the full line-up for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate.
     


    Adam also reads out some book recommendations from Kobo, but not before recommending his own new book Kiss of Death immediately at the start of the episode. Obviously.
