092 – Badgering or Beavering?

Why is this episode so late? What is the connection between Cormoran Strike and the Granada version of Sherlock Holmes starring Jeremy Brett? How might alien’s interpret Partners in Crime and why might this episode be Bob’s last?

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

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.

084 – Pratting Around, Cheap Heroin and Crime’s Golden Age

If you briefly die, but are then resuscitated, does that wipe clean your debt to society? Why is audio fiction having a comeback? What if Jane Tennison interviewed Prince Andrew and where is Bob this week? 

Adam Croft and guest host Adrian Hobart answer these questions – except perhaps the last – on this week’s episode. 

Adrian’s been in glamorous but grubby Brighton, researching his new book. He gives us the lowdown on his visit to the seaside, tempting Adam with the lure of budget narcotics. Adam has been thinking about the detective-like overtones of the recent Prince Andrew interview on Newsnight. They also discuss the golden age of detective fiction, what’s on the Brit box and YouTube rabbit holes.
