Ed McBain's The Con Man - Episode Four, Bonus Episode: The Three Main Fluids

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, Part One: Who Wants A Crime?

Hark! It's the 87th Precinct podcast episode 4 - PART ONE - The Con Man!
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!
