What’s that? You’re missing your absolute faves, Lee and Eddie? Well they’re back with a whole new episode full of great fiction, terrifying films, and horrific TV show pitches.
This week Lee’s sick and Eddie’s tipsy, but the books are great and the banter is even better! Lee reviews The Blue Pool by Siobhan MacDonald, Eddie asks the hard hitting questions, like would you kiss a vampire? The water theme continues with both our hosts finally reading the same thing for once; will they rave or rant about Sarah Bailey’s debut novel, The Dark Lake? Tune in and find out in episode eleven of Crime Time’s second season!
Lee and Eddie are back to their constant bickering over which one of them Stephen King might adopt and who’s allowed to make edits (and when). Lee (who Stephen King would totally adopt if Eddie weren’t the obviously better choice), gets in some sucking up with a glowing review of Bag of Bones. Eddie (who has great hair and is really good at pretending to lose at board games) reviews Doug Johnstone’s Crash Land, and isn’t sure about aviation anymore.
Lee and Eddie are back with a whole new season of Crime Time Podcast! That’s right, Since neither can count past fifty-five the counter has been reset, and we begin anew! Starting strong this new year Lee has raced ahead of notoriously friendless bookworm, Eddie and read a disgustingly large number of books already. She just can’t wait to tell you about The Dry by Jane Harper, and Eddie can’t wait to spend the next three days hiding under her bed sulking and reading to catch up!
Lee reviews The Fire Child by S.K. Tremayne, Eddie is still recovering from reading The Yellow Wallpaper, and they both ponder what makes a good book (cover).
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!”
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 it out!
We also discuss jump scares! Are they good or bad? Eddie thinks they’re cheap, but Lee says, why pay more?
Alright, I guess they don’t work in text!
We’d like to thank all of our wonderful listeners to getting us to 16,826 downloads and counting! Lee talks Caroline Mitchell and Cathy Cash Spellman, Eddie asks where is the best place to read, and they both ask people who enjoy reading outside: “Howwwwww????” They talk The Visit, The Boy, and how the hint of the supernatural is much creepier than outright ghosts.
We return to the Old Book, New Book challenge and hear from Lee about her thoughts on John Wyndham’s The Midwich Cuckoos, and Eddie reports back on how it feels to have reached the last published installment of Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series. Eddie reveals a secret love of comic books just in time for Free Comic Book Day with Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s Papergirls.
Will Lee finally admit that old things aren’t the worst? Has Patricia Cornwell secretly been replaced with an imposter? Will Eddie stop gushing about Papergirls? Find out in this suspense filled episode of Crime Time Podcast!
This week Eddie reviews the one and only Anne Holt, Lee won’t stop gushing about Gilly Macmillan, and over three decades after The Shining was published Stephen King wrote a sequel, then quite a bit after that Lee found it and freaked out! Will it be great? Will Lee discover the key to making her favourite authors write sequels? Will Eddie stop interrupting long enough for her to finish her review? Probably not, but find out in episode 28!
