1.42 | Shari Lapena, Hidden Objects, & Likeable Characters

 

 

Unable to stop Eddie from talking about computer games Lee is forced to listen to her yapping on about her hidden object finding destiny. Lee talks whodunnit with Shari Lapena’s The Couple Next Door. Don’t worry, despite Eddie’s best attempts at guessing the end, this review is spoiler free!

Lee’s puppy, Duck makes several unscheduled guest appearances in a segment provisionally titled “Look How Professional We Are, Aren’t You Impressed!” You can’t stay mad at him for long though, look at that face!

1.41 | Peter May, Fairytales, & Grimm Conclusions

Are Grimm’s fairytales too grim? Is Eddie’s weird attitude now explained by a childhood full of weird folktales? Was Hans Christian Anderson the worst houseguest ever?

This week we delve into to the grimmer side of Disney, as well as finally review a book requested by one of our fantastic Patreon supporters with Peter May’s The Firemaker! Will tempers flare, or will our heroes simply fizzle out? The temperature is rising at Crime Time HQ! Will Lee and Eddie stand the heat of this intense novel, or will they get out of the kitchen? Is it out of the frying pan and into the fire? Will Eddie stop making fire puns? Not likely, but find out in this episode of Crime Time!

1.40 | Gone Home, Caroline Mitchell, & Jump Scares

We’re baaaaaaaaaack!

That’s right, Lee and Eddie have returned from the unexpected hiatus last week and are kicking up a storm with Lee’s final thoughts on Caroline Mitchell’s The Silent Twin, Eddie’s absolute love of Gone Home, and a game that Lee accidentally said was named The Brookhaven Experiment but is actually named Outlast. Check them out though, these are all interesting games!

We also discuss jump scares! Are they good or bad? Eddie thinks they’re cheap, but Lee says, why pay more?

BOO!

Alright, I guess they don’t work in text!

BOO!!

Okay, okay!
