1.53 | The Return of Crime Time & Patricia Cornwell

Crime Time is finally back! Thank you to everyone who sent us messages and tweets to let us know how much you missed us!

Recently, Lee and Eddie spotted the latest instalment of Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series, Chaos! After a brief fainting spell from Eddie, (who was heroically placed in the recovery position by Lee on her way to buy the book) they both devoured the new novel,, and are bringing you a very special Patricia Cornwell-themed episode!

1.50 | S.L. Grey, Sophie Hannah, & Instadrama

Agatha Christie’s Poirot books have been continued by Sophie Hannah and Eddie’s on the scene with all her little grey cells at the ready! Lee may never go on holiday again after reading The Apartment by S.L. Grey, and your wonderful hosts ask you what they should do if theoretically Peter James had found their instagram, and had maybe commented on it, and they maybe are freaking out. Hypothetically of course!

1.49 | Louise Jensen, The Blair Witch, and Gossip Time

This week Lee reviews The Sister by Louise Jensen, Eddie dishes out the goss, and they’re both off to the movies! That’s right, it’s not just books we’ve got our noses in! Nowhere is safe! It’s a trip down memory lane with the long-awaited sequel (ignore the perfectly great other sequel) to The Blair Witch Project!

Did Eddie cry? Did Lee get possessed by a witch? Find out in episode 49!

1.48 | Sarah Waters, Kazuo Ishiguro, & Flash Fiction

Eddie talks historical con artists, Lee finally gets to talk about Kazuo Ishiguro’s amazing Never Let Me Go, they both ponder on whether it’s possible to be a writer if you don’t read, and an exciting announcement is made!

That’s right (write !) Crime Time is having a friendly Flash Fiction competition, and we want to hear from you!!! For more details check out our competition page on our website, crimetimepod.com!

1.47 | Janice Simpson, Iain Ryan, & Aussie Grime

Check out our new release date! That’s right, Crime Time is coming to Mondays, so start your week with a healthy dose of thrills, chills, and comedic spills!

This week we’re talking about some Australian crime that left us with chills! We try to figure out what it is that makes Australian literature what it is and where the line is between true crime and fiction.

1.46 | Val McDermid, Christobel Kent, & Weaklings

Lee and Eddie return with a boom (mic!), reviewing Queen of Crime, Val McDermid’s Killing the Shadows and Christobel Kent’s The Loving Husband.

Eddie is very proud to say she can now eat foods other than soup, and Lee wants to know why weak characters get on our nerves so much?

Keep an eye out on Monday when you can get an extra dose of Crime Time!
