    088 - ‘Twas the Podcast Before Christmas AKA Christmas With The Chuckle Brothers

    On this very special year in review episode Adam Croft and Robert Daws answer these questions whilst discussing 2019’s happenings in crime fiction. Well, sort of.
    The Partners also discuss the New York Times list of the best crime novels of the year, the upcoming Scandi Noir TV series – Wisting, the festive bookish habits of Icelanders and their own Christmas plans.

    087 - Deadly Staplers, New Releases and Creaky Knees

    What is Adam’s guilty pleasure? How many mystery books don’t have female victims? How long can two men talk about a TV show they haven’t seen and can Adam and Bob avoid talking about both sex and politics this episode?
    Adam Croft and Bob Daws answer these questions – and many more – on the latest episode.
    Skirting politics as best they can, the Partners discuss Adam’s latest release (see his shameless book recommendation below), mysteries without female victims, a new BBC show from the producers of Bodyguard and Traces – the new crime show based on an idea by Val McDermid – despite neither of them having watched it. However, Bob has seen Elizabeth Is Missing starring Glenda Jackson, and *LISTENER ALERT* it sparks a monologue about TV formats. 
    Also, the upcoming Partners In Crime Christmas special is liberally foreshadowed. It’s coming your way in Christmas week – keep your podcatcher primed!

    086 - A Gobby Crime Writer and a Vagabond of the Road

    Are all bald crime writers gobby and succinct? Is a true crime not a true crime when its a podcast? Why has Bob never been to Newcastle until now and did the Partners In Crime predict the Bad Sex in Fiction Award winner? 
    Adam Croft and returning host Bob Daws answer these pressing crime related questions on the latest episode.  
    *Spoiler for the last question: yes they did. John Harvey’s Pax was Joint winner of the Bad Sex in Fiction Award with Didier Decoin.*
    Bob is back from being a travelling actor – sorry – vagabond of the road, for now at least. To celebrate, he uses his impressive acting talents on John Harvey’s entry in the Bad Sex in Fiction Award. Brace yourselves listeners, this rendition is not to be missed. 
    Adam has his OCD tendencies exposed and also realises that he has much in common with James Ellroy.
    Also discussed are Sky Crime’s The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell, Martin Scorsese’s Netflix crime drama, The Irishman and True-Crime Podcast Angel of Vine.

    085 - Lorne Sausage, Memories of Jeffrey Archer and Lee Child’s Brexit Intervention

    085 - Lorne Sausage, Memories of Jeffrey Archer and Lee Child’s Brexit Intervention

    Is it insulting to compare a crime to a Jeffrey Archer novel? Would Culverhouse like Adam? Should straight men be able to write queer characters and where’s the best barbecue in Georgia? 
    Adam Croft and regular guest presenter Adrian Hobart do their best to answer these pressing crime related questions in the latest episode.
    Adrian has been checking out greasy spoons while his sons do parkrun. Stay tuned for the first instalment of Adrian Hobart’s Restaurant Recommendations.
    Meanwhile Adam has been scouring the crime news headlines for stories to talk about. He gives a rundown of the best crime fiction from Georgia, tells us why Lee Child is applying for an Irish passport and what new TV show Harrison Ford is appearing in. One of his stories sparks memories of a close encounter with Jeffrey Archer for Adrian.
