3.1 | Sue Grafton, Rachel Caine, & Magical Contracts

Lee and Eddie take a moment to pay their respects to the one and only Sue Grafton, who sadly passed away late last year. Without her amazing work this podcast would probably never have been made, and we wanted to share some of our favourite moments from her Alphabet series.

Lee has gotten their hands on a copy of Killman Creek, the sequel to the amazing Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake, and they just can’t wait to tell you all about it! Eddie wants to know the answers to the questions that keep us all up late at night, and that is: Is it sexy, or is it scary? That’s right, you’ve always wanted to know if the Fair Folk were straight up sexy, or super scary, and we’re here to answer that!

2.27 | Rachel Caine, Laura Marshall, & Crime on a Dime

They’re heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere! That’s right, Lee and Eddie wouldn’t leave you hanging for the holiday season! The last episode of the year has arrived, and it is truly a gift!

Lee reviews Laura Marshall’s chilling Friend Request while Eddie just pales in fear at the idea of making friends. Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake arrives just in time for you to binge the first two of this ongoing series, and Eddie is swooning over the coffee table book/pulp fiction history book of the year!

We will see al of you beautiful people in the new year, with an all new schedule, and more banter to make your reading life especially extra!

2.26 | Blade Runner 2049, Sarah A. Denzil, & Sexy or Scary?

Oh dang! Guess who’s back? It’s your absolute faves, Lee and Eddie!

This week’s episode sees the return of Sexy or Scary, Lee gets chills from Audible’s Thriller of the Year, and Eddie charts the recline of cinema!

So get comfortable (but not too comfortable), and get ready for an absolutely brilliant (if we do say so ourselves) episode of Crime Time Podcast!

2.17 | Rachel Abbott, John Wyndham, & Creatures from the Deep

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!

2.14 | Stephen King, Trial and Error, & Perilous Pranks

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!

2.12 | Oscar Wilde, Wonder Woman, & The Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2

Lee and Eddie are off to the movies this week! In separate cars! To separate cinemas! To see separate films! No big deal. Lee wandered in to see Wonder Woman, and Eddie was caught of guard by the lovable Guardians of the Galaxy! Eddie still won’t stop asking whether or not things are sexy, and Lee’s starting to get both annoyed and concerned. That’s right, Sexy or Scary is back, so let’s get wild! Oscar Wilde, that is! (See what I did there?)

2.09 | Alex Marwood, Lizzie Borden, Personal Shopper, & Deal Breakers

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!

2.07 | Michelle Paver, Dorothy Porter, & The Gory Story

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!

2.06 | Douglas Adams, Sarah Pinborough, & Dinnertime Danger

Ever wonder what connection a lost cat, an electric monk, and a couch jammed in a stairwell might have? Well neither has Eddie, but she’s about to! Ever wonder if things are not quite what they seem? Lee does all the time, but then she reads a lot of horror…

In this episode, Lee and Eddie talk creepy friends, weird acquaintances, and dangerous dinner guests. Will Lee ever get to finish her sentences? Will Eddie figure out social norms? Are mice secretly monitoring the human race? We don’t have time to answer all of these questions, but there’s one thing we definitely have time for: Crime! … Fiction!
Fictional crime.
Crime Time.
Get amongst it.
