Books

You’d think two bestselling crime writers would just talk about crime, right? Not these ones. Sit back and enjoy fun, frolics and laughs. After all, what’s more lighthearted than murder?

Ridiculously handsome

 
Adam Croft is back with another episode of Partners in Crime for your listening pleasure.
 
This week, Adam tells us about his trip to the theatre, he's looking forward to going on holiday and we missed the chance to give Bob the bumps for his birthday.
 
In crime fiction news, we hear about a panel being hosted by award-winning author Stuart Neville in Armagh (follow the link below to book tickets), ten reasons why Victorian England is the perfect setting for murder according to Crime Reads and Adam reveals the full line-up for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate.
 
Adam also reads out some book recommendations from Kobo, but not before recommending his own new book Kiss of Death immediately at the start of the episode. Obviously.

Lots of wine

Bob is away on a cruise ship or something, so Adam is here for another solo episode.
 
In this episode, we hear about a variety of longlists and shortlists (see the notes below), 8 fictional crime series for those that love Peaky Blinders and Adam chats about ITV's true crime drama The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe.
 
He also gives us an update on Bob's whereabouts and the possibility of him returning next week. I won't tell you what he said, you'll have to listen.

Frog in my throat

Adam Croft is here once again to save the day by doing episode 162 of Partners in Crime on his own while Bob is away rehearsing. That's the excuse he's given us anyway.
 
We hear about a Lynda La Plante Q&A in the New Statesman, the nine best fictional films and shows based on real-life crimes according to Collider, and Adam gives us this week's Kobo recommendations. 
 
He also reads out some emails from listeners who are more than happy for Adam to present the podcast on his own. That's not to say they don't like Bob or that he waffles on a lot, but more of a compliment towards Adam. At least I think so anyway. 
 
The links Adam mentioned in the episode are below, as is our email address; we'd love you to get in touch!

One man show

Hello all. Bob is away, but I didn't think we should have three weeks without an episode, so I made Adam do one. It's shorter than normal, but I think it's much better than nothing at all.  

So what can you expect to hear in episode 161?

Adam discusses Waterstones' £5,000 debut fiction prize, has a look at the five novels Paula Hawkins recommends in CrimeReads with criminal acts at their heart, and reveals this week's book recommendations from Kobo.

He also reads out some correspondence from a listener who offers their opinion on Amazon Prime's TV crime thriller Reacher, briefly mentions the weather and makes fun of Bob. Which is his fault for not being here.

Robert Daws Chunters On

Great news everybody - It's time for episode 160 of Partners in Crime with Robert Daws and Adam Croft.
 
During this episode, we hear all about Adam's wonky settings, Bob struggles to pronounce things and the pair discuss a foot stool.
 
This is later interrupted by some crime fiction chat during which Bob talks about the potential problems with television and film adaptations, Adam discusses an Irish Times article investigating why there are so many Irish women crime writers and there are a number of book recommendations (see notes below).
 
Bonus chat this time includes precipitation, Adam's shiny head and the likely upcoming assassination of Bob.

Pants

Adam Croft and Robert Daws return for episode 159 of Partners in Crime.
 
Bob explains he hasn't been able to watch much television or read any books since the last episode, but he doesn't let that hinder his contribution, as he recommends an audiobook and a true crime documentary. In fact, he manages to discuss the latter for a full eight minutes.
 
Meanwhile, our hosts discuss an article from The Herald, in which author James Oswald admits he questioned whether he could continue writing about the police, after their heavy-handed response to the Sarah Everard vigil, and Adam reveals some of the crime fiction stars already lined up to appear at the Theakston Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival in the summer.
 
Bonus material this time includes an email from a listener who got in touch to share how much he loved the mattress content in the last episode, and will no doubt have been thrilled at Adam's revelation that he too has now purchased a new mattress. AND a bed.

Sound entertainers

The boys are back in the studio for the second week in a row. I know, amazing, eh? But don't worry, to keep that unprofessional vibe that you've grown to love going, the latest episode starring Adam Croft and Robert Daws is a couple of days late.
 
The weather chat returns this week as the pair give their respective opinions about snow, Bob is extremely impressed with his new mattress and Adam reveals he has short legs.
 
There is some crime stuff too. We hear about the upcoming debut novel from former Chief Superintendent Graham Bartlett, Adam gives his opinion on tv show The Tourist, while Bob recommends two programmes on Netflix.

Back log

After just over a month without your favourite crime fiction podcast, you can now rest easy as Adam Croft and Robert Daws return to your ears (and your eyes if you're a Patreon member). Partners in Crime is finally back.
 
In this latest episode, we hear Bob is having a go at dry January (Adam certainly isn't), a sea monster has been found in Rutland and Adam reveals he's got a new book on the way because he's getting a bit hard up.
 
The pair discuss an article from The Scotsman which reveals the rather controversial method a certain high-street shop uses for its book charts, Bob recommends a television show and Adam reads out an email from a listener asking the question, 'is Doctor Who a police procedural?' 
 
Back on the subject of charts, we hear this very podcast is doing extremely well in that department, while Bob somehow gets on to the subject of having a prostate exam. Well, if that doesn't get you to listen....

It's that most wonderful time of the year again. Yep, it's the Partners in Crime Christmas Special with Robert Daws and Adam Croft.
 
So what's Christmassy about it? Well, viewers on Patreon will be able to see the amazing festively decorated studio, and Adam and Bob wearing Christmas hats (obviously). The episode also features a Christmas party (NOT a business meeting), at which Bob tries some non-alcoholic wine and refuses to eat parmesan cheese.
 
They do at some point get on to crime fiction stuff. Adam goes through a screenrant.com article looking at the top ten most common tropes in murder mystery movies, Bob recommends a Nell (not Neil) Pattison audiobook and we hear which celebrities have been writing crime novels.
 
Also in this week's episode we hear the outstanding Partners in Crime Christmas song (link to the video is below), Adam coughs a lot and Bob starts humming for no obvious reason.

Intriguing spider webs

Adam Croft and Robert Daws return for another installment of your favourite podcast, Partners in Crime. 
 
In this episode, we hear that our hosts had very different Sundays. Bob had a lazy day sitting on the couch watching sport, while Adam had a busy one which involved getting boosted. 
 
In crime fiction stuff, the pair discuss the exciting news that Mark Billingham's first new series in twenty years is on the way, Adam takes a look at an article in The Guardian which reveals the books we've been reading during lockdown and Bob goes through Laura Wilson's five best crime thrillers of 2021.
 
Also in the podcast, Adam announces the quite remarkable news of how many years this podcast has been going, while Bob, after watching his first ever Grand Prix, reveals he is now a Formula One expert.

No flashing in this house

The world's best podcast is finally back. And so is Mr Robert Daws. He's finally decided it's time to stop hanging around with Sir Ian McKellen and slum it with his partner in crime, Adam Croft.
 
In this episode, Adam reveals the shortlist for the 2021 An Post Irish Crime Fiction Book of the Year award, he goes through an interesting article on kottke.org looking at the ten rules of golden age detective fiction, while Bob recommends a French crime drama television show.
 
Bonus material this week includes Adam and Bob comparing Christmas trees, the pair chatting about how they have both been extremely busy for very different reasons and Adam tries to break his record for the amount of emails he can clear while Bob is talking. It's obviously a lot.

In this special episode of Partners in Crime, Adam chats to best-selling author David Mark about his new book Piece of Mind (link below), which is David's memoir about living with severe mental illness and is an honest account of living with many harrowing conditions.

They discuss his lowest moments, David tries to recall when he first noticed he was suffering and explains how it feels to live his life with mental illness. 

We also hear about his teenage years in which he had to deal with his father suffering from depression, they talk about things you shouldn't say to those with the condition and David tells us about the time an idea for a novel stopped him from walking to a place where he was thinking about ending his life.

Sounding like Les Dawson

Adrian Hobart once again joins Adam in the absence of Bob for this week's podcast, in which the pair compare colds. We hear that Adrian is just getting over his, but unfortunately for Adam, it looks like the worst is yet to come. 
 
When our hosts finally start talking about crime fiction stuff, Adam reveals how Richard Osman's second novel did sales-wise (I wont do a spoiler, but I think you can probably guess it wasn't bad news), and we hear that despite all Osman's success, he still gets upset by bad reviews. Adrian tells us about a possible paper shortage in the book-printing world, while Adam takes a look at an Entertainment Daily article previewing 'the next big crime drama on BBC One'.
 
Also in the podcast, Adam and Adrian have a coughing contest, while the latter reveals he effing loves submarines.

During the war

Still awaiting the return of Bob next month, Adrian Hobart continues to sit in the hot seat and tells us all about his visit to Old Trafford to see his team lose to West Ham. I suppose I should have guessed he's a Manchester United fan with that accent. Our hosts have a little discussion on politics, while we hear which films Adrian has been watching last week.
 
In crime fiction related stuff, Adam reveals which detective comedy-drama is getting a spin-off and how you can watch it, Adrian talks about his trip to crime writing festival Bloody Scotland and the pair have an interesting discussion on how writers might handle the current pandemic in their novels. Does it need to be referenced? Have a listen to hear their thoughts. 
 
Also in the podcast, Adam reveals the winner of the McIlvanney Prize, while Adrian describes how he's often 'honking around'. Yeah, I'm not sure either.

In this week's episode, Adrian Hobart continues to stand in for the gallivanting Bob, and vows to try and keep his name-dropping to a minimum. Adam goes through the history of Mr. Men books, while our hosts discuss the random two hot days we are having. I couldn't work out if they were complaining or are happy about it. Maybe you can decide?
 
They do manage to get some crime fiction in too. Adam reveals who the latest famous author is to sign up for subscription newsletter platform Substack, Adrian has some exciting news about Agatha Christie's Miss Marple series and we hear all about the online BAD Sydney crime writing festival.
 
Adam deliberates about how to send his son to school with many items when he isn't allowed a rucksack, while Adrian shows off his accent of the week, and yes, that's what the title is all about. Not what you were thinking.

Great big whoppers

In episode 149 of Partners in Crime there is no Bob. He's away filming, so Adrian Hobart joins Adam for this podcast, and most likely the rest of September. Adrian tries to not let the side down by getting in his own name-drops, which includes the time he gave Ian Rankin a mug.

There's also a bit of crime fiction stuff. Adam talks about some big names missing out on the shortlist for the McIlvanney Prize, we hear how a former MP turned crime writer is loving literary events and Adrian gives us a little insight into the discussions that go on between publishers and writers. That last one is a lot more interesting than I've made it sound.
 
Viewers on Patreon can see Adrian's fancy studio that made Adam very jealous, while our guest host continues to impress by showing off his range of accents, including some of The Beatles. He can't do Ringo though.

Dropping babies

In this week's episode our hosts revert back to the traditional format of starting with some weather chat, which obviously includes some moaning about the British summer. The pair also go through some poor excuses for missing podcasts, and even blame me for last week. Ok I'll give them that one, it was my fault.

Also in the podcast, Adam has a look at some crime fiction titles added to streaming service Britbox, Bob talks about a new crime drama premiering on Alibi this week and there's a discussion about the theatre industry slowly getting back on it's feet.
 
Bob wonders if Patreon members would like to see his six-pack, while Adam reveals he only washes once a year. Eww.

Back end of a camel

In this week's episode we hear how one of our hosts made their theatre debut as a camel's backside, Adam attempts to remember how many years he's been married and Bob tells us he spent most of last week in a luxury hotel.

Adam reveals the winner of the Theakston Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year, Bob talks about a French-Belgian supernatural thriller TV show and we hear about the new book from Stephen King.
 
Bob does the unthinkable and talks about another podcast, while Adam is already counting down the days until the end of the school holidays.

A nice Bic biro in green

 

In this week's podcast our hosts discuss the fact both have been pinged, how many antihistamines Bob has taken today and Adam reveals his new technique on how to spot an idiot.

If that all sounds fascinating, then you should listen to the latest episode of Partners in Crime with Adam Croft and Robert Daws.
Bob recommends a Lisa Stone audiobook, Adam reveals which legendary writer is the focus of this year's Montblanc Writers Edition pen and we hear that a blockbusting tv crime drama is coming to an end.
The pair have a semi-serious chat about wearing masks, they have a bit of a moan about it being too hot and Adam horrifies Bob by telling him he's about to take his clothes off.

Hotdogs and comté

Is Bob a psychopath? Who is texting him during the podcast? And are our hosts any good at football punditry?
 
If you'd like to find out, listen to the latest episode of Partners in Crime with Adam Croft and Robert Daws. 
 
Bob chats about two new true crime documentaries, Adam goes through the shortlist for this year's Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the Year and we hear Antonio Banderas will be returning to television to play an Italian crime reporter in The Monster of Florence.
 
Adam has a look at a Bloomberg article which talks about how Netflix's Lupin pulled off the perfect heist (link below), while the pair discuss suitable middle-class snacks and drinks to have while watching football.
