Crime Friction

Synopsis

Crime Friction is chance to hear what writers talk about when they’re not trying to sell you anything. Pull up a chair at the bar, listener, and hear what authors really think. Are they sick of hearing about Chandler? Do they think peanuts are overrated? Who would win in a fight between the legume and the comic strip? Are they still really cut up that Dr Samuel Beckett never made it home? Plus, sometimes there's a dog.
