Hark! It's the 87th Precinct Podcast Bonus Episode!
Carrying on from our main 2-parter, we examine (as usual) the different editions of the books we have. Chat about Gena Rowlands as Teddy Carella and discuss how we would cast a new 87th Precinct TV series in response to a listener question.
Our next book will be "Killer's Choice".

Ed McBain's The Con Man - Episode Four: Who Wants A Crime? and A cross between Alan Moore and Bob Ross

Hark! It's the 87th Precinct Podcast episode 4  "The Con Man".

Originally a two part episode - now combined into one:

Original Part One Info:
"This time we're looking at the fourth novel (The Con Man - 1957) in the series and also looking at/comparing it to episode one of the 1961 TV series first episode, The Floater, which is adapted from this book.

This episode will be in two parts - next part next week, and some bonus material to follow after that! Hope you enjoy it!"
Original Part Two Info:

"We pick up where we left off in the last podcast, discussing both Ed McBain's 1957 book The Con Man and the first episode of the 87th Precinct TV series, The Floater. Along the way we get massively distracted by classic British police series, The Bill and develop a whole new and entirely implausible way to end the podcast."
