Eddie’s back on the books from last century with a review of Patrick Süskind’s Perfume: The story of a murderer, Lee’s still firmly in this decade with Kylie Ladd’s The Way Back, and they both attempt to plot the perfect crime (fiction).
Lee gets acquainted with DCI Tom Douglas (out of order, as usual!), Eddie reviews a book published half a century ago (can she get any more insufferable? Spoiler warning: yes), and they are both reminded that the ocean is a terrifying place! Does Lee personally know the Loch Ness Monster? Is Eddie best friends with James Cameron? Do they have submarine parties with Jules Verne? Find out (maybe) in this very excellent episode of Crime Time Podcast!
Eddie spent the past week trying (and failing) to figure out PD James’ Death of an Expert Witness, Lee takes a trip down non-linear memory lane with Megan Miranda’s All the Missing Girls, and they try to figure out whether Patricia Corwell’s Kay Scarpetta and Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone just have really bad luck, or are a bit gung ho for their own good!
Eddie has the flu! That’s right, Lee is risking life and limb by sitting anywhere near the cloud of germs that is Eddie right now. You could say that Eddie is at the centre of The Dead Zone! Or maybe that’s what Lee’s reading this week… Eddie binge-watched the entirety of Trial & Error, and reckons it’s pretty good! Unless that’s just the fever talking! Lee wants to know how anyone survived the invention of the prank show, and Eddie should probably go cancel that order of bees that she was gonna hide in Lee’s car…
All this and more in a frankly excellent episode of Crime Time Podcast!
This week Lee and Eddie are haunted by the spectral, the spooky, and the downright scary! That’s right, it’s time for Crime Time’s super scary ghost spook-tacular! Discover the haunting truth about Lee’s love of ghost stories, scream in fear as Eddie reveals her abilities to commune with the dead (via Barthes’ Death of the Author, wooooooooo), and weep in terror as you realise that much like Betelgeuse or Bloody Mary, Lee and Eddie can be summoned (on your computer) by repeating their names (into Google)! Freeeeaaaaaky!
Get ready for thrills, chills, and lots of ghostly recommendations!
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!
Eddie should be doing her work, but instead she’s read the entire Percy Jackson series! Lee wants to move to Gotham, Eddie would prefer Metropolis, but they might both end up in Dead Europe!
In a special Lee vs Eddie edition of Crime Time, we’re pitting the best franchise crossovers head to head! Or maybe just chatting about them… Find out when you tune in to this super cool, not at all dorky episode of Crime Time!
This week Lee and a very quiet Eddie (she set the microphone up wrong, sorry!) discuss some deal breakers when picking up a new book. They’ve both been to the movies to see Personal Shopper, and Eddie tries to make the segment “screengrab” catch on. Lee has read an actual book this week, unlike Eddie who just seems to keep wasting her time with Roman epics instead of proper literature!
If you love Crime (fiction), Mystery, and professional sound quality 😉 then sit down and tune in!
This week Lee and Eddie debate Aliens vs Ghosts, talk fave episodes of The X Files, Lee still won’t stop talking about Stephen King (who could blame her), and they discover that there are other Crime Fiction podcasts in the world. Who would have thought it!
If you want to hear a review from Lee’s mum, buy us a coffee, or hear Eddie’s latest elevator pitch for this season’s new blockbuster thriller, then sit down, get comfortable, and tune in to this week’s episode!
Lee scales the mountainous Thin Air by Michele Paver, Eddie can’t stop reading verse novels and chases Lee around with a copy of The Monkey’s Mask by Dorothy Porter, and is gore and extreme violence always essential in Crime, Thriller, Horror, and Suspense writing? Can it just be a sign of lazy writing? Find out in this all new, one-of-a-kind, only slightly late (Eddie got stuck between train carriages for a couple days, don’t ask), super cool episode of Crime Time!
