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!
In today’s episode, Lee and Eddie revisit the wonderful Sue Grafton, Eddie goes to the movies to see a film about an infant chauffeur (and forgets Edgar Wright’s name), and they talk more about what makes great trash.
Will Lee admit that they stole the Borgia Pearl? Will Eddie finally avenge the brutal murder of her goldfish? Will any of this actually feature in the episode?
Find out in this A++, 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!
This week we hear an update on Eddie’s epic battle to read through all the Kay Scarpetta books in order before Lee spoils the end of Depraved Heart. Lee and Eddie talk about how much they love when people contact them, how much it scares the hell out of them to be contacted by famous authors, and how weird it is to talk about themselves in the third person in this blurb.
In episode 4 we reveal the end of Ngaio Marsh’s A Man Lay Dead, congratulate Queen Lizzie 2 on being the best sequel in the biz, talk trash (definitions), and Eddie falls for the literal red herring.
