Customer Reviews

RuthieReview2 ,

Easy listening

Good podcast with easy delivery which makes you want to listen to each new episode. Shorter in length than many of the other true crime podcasts, but subject matter all UK cases and enough detail for a quick listen. Will keep listening Adam.

Big Den 4278 ,

Beat any where

Have listen to all of these really look forward to them on a Tuesday. Adam is great and really great stories and great research. I love in Northern Ireland and his stuff from here is bang in the money *****

Leicesterman ,

It’s a crime if you miss this.

It seems to me that many of the true crime podcasts concentrate on American crimes whereas this one, as the name suggests, is directed at the UK crime scene. Although predominantly murder cases, the podcast also looks at domestic terrorism, fraud and police corruption, there are a mixture of cases you are unlikely to have heard of and those that will definitely ring a bell somewhere in the back of your mind. The episodes are well researched and delivered by Adam in an almost deadpan manner (no pun intended) which I prefer to a more sensational tone. So if you have a strong interest in UK crime have a listen to this podcast, I cannot recommend if highly enough.
