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?

Christmas Special AKA Squeeze it in

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 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.
