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?

A bit diddly-do

Did Bob have a good birthday? How delicate is he feeling during this episode? And did Adam enjoy his first trip to the pub in months?
To find out the answers, listen to the latest episode of Partners in Crime with Robert Daws and Adam Croft.
Our hosts have an argument about the controversial last episode in the series of Line of Duty (see the notes below on how to avoid the spoilers), Bob talks about new American crime drama Mare of Easttown and Adam takes us through the winners of the 2021 Edgar Allan Poe Awards.
Bob recommends an Amanda Lees book, while thanks to a helpful podcast listener, Adam now knows what a water cooler looks like.
