    Why is Bob running out of laptops? Will he stop fiddling with his phone and pay attention? And just how much are our hosts looking forward to being able to present the podcast from Adam's garden?
     


    Find out in this week's episode of Partners in Crime with Adam Croft and Robert Daws.
     


    Bob recommends we all go and listen to the podcast Obsessed With Line of Duty, Adam reveals how many people tuned in to Aberdeen's virtual crime writing festival Granite Noir and we hear all about another brilliant ITV crime drama. This week, it's McDonald & Dodds starring Tala Gouveia and Jason Watkins. 
     


    Adam discusses a list.co.uk article in which actor John Simm reveals that he hopes ITV adapt all seventeen of Peter James' Roy Grace books, while Bob provides some in-depth, expert football analysis. Well, he talks about something called 'soccer' and the lack of an 'audience' during lockdown.

    My friend Kevin

    Would you like to hear Adam's excuse to avoid Valentine's Day? Maybe you want to know if he took an opportunity to use his own NAME DROP ALERT button? Or perhaps you're interested in hearing about Bob's new weekly feature?
     


    Well, you can hear it all in this week's episode of Partners in Crime with Adam Croft and Robert Daws.
     


    Bob recommends ITV crime drama Unforgotten, Adam chats about why Silence of the Lambs is still terrifying years later and we hear about Scandinavia's top crime fiction locations to visit.
     


    The pair discuss a Guardian article in which Val McDermid reveals how she survived in a male environment, while we discover that Adam actually has a friend. It's true, he even says hello to him.

    Bush noir

    Would you like to hear — for the first time ever — Bob being told he's too quiet? What happens when Adam's son James decides to invade the studio? And why does he call his Daddy, Jupiter?
     


    You can hear all this in the latest episode of Partners in Crime with Robert Daws and Adam Croft.
     


    Bob chats about Netflix and ITV drama Marcella, which is now on its third season, Adam informs us of a new NBC true-crime series called The Thing About Pam starring Renée Zellweger and our hosts discuss a Sydney Morning Herald article on how — after Donald Trump — nothing is too fantastic for crime writers.
     


    Bob recommends a Sarah Pearse book (see below), while the pair make post-lockdown plans to have a garden party and drinks with Patreon members. If that's not a reason to become a patron, I don't know what is.

    Would you like to hear Adam and Bob reminisce about the days of recording the podcast outside? How about Bob getting excited about his new ethernet cable? Or perhaps you'd prefer some discussion about the sort of tattoos our hosts should get?
    Well, you don't have to choose because it's all coming up in the latest episode of Partners in Crime with Robert Daws and Adam Croft. 
    Bob discusses an article in The Times Crime Club about publishers not talking to each other, resulting in messy release dates, Adam goes through Joanna Schaffhausen's ten most dynamic detective duos in crime fiction and we hear which books inspired the hit Netflix show Lupin.
    Our hosts let us know how they got on playing a new murder mystery card game (more details below), Bob finally recommends something available on Kobo and I improve the content massively by making two impressive cameo appearances during the episode.

    Do you want to hear how Adam murdered a snowman? Where did he dispose of the body? And just how big is the audio delay between our hosts this week?
    To find out the answers to these questions and some interesting stuff too, listen to the latest episode of Partners in Crime with Robert Daws and Adam Croft.
    Bob chats about French crime TV series Spiral, which is back for one final season, Adam goes through the Mystery Writers of America 2021 Edgar Allan Poe Nominations and we hear who the top 50 authors are, based on sales performance.
    Adam tells us about a new murder mystery card game called Foul Play (see how to order it and get a discount in the notes below), while Bob recommends yet another book that you can't get on Kobo.

    Clara from Waitrose

    How many times will Bob freeze during this week's episode? How loud is his dog? And who are our host's favourite CNN presenters?
    To find out the answers to these questions and hear some occasional chat about crime fiction, listen to the latest episode of Partners in Crime with Robert Daws and Adam Croft.
    Adam tells us about an article in the Guardian on Patricia Highsmith during the week of what would have been her 100th birthday, Bob talks about a well-known Ira Levin book and the pair discuss how we're spoilt for choice with TV crime fiction dramas at the moment.
    Bob reveals that he loves to dance to the Partners in Crime theme tune, things get a bit political during the episode and Clara from Waitrose recommends a new tv show on Netflix.
