Murder? Definitely. Paradise? Hardly. Christopher and Eric embark on a trip to the South of France in search of high crimes amongst the upper classes. Well, these criminals are definitely high on something, that’s for sure. The rest is a masterclass in poor life choices as your hosts serve up MURDER IN PARADISE: Season 1, Episode 6. When hedonistic British aristocrat Anthony-Ashley Cooper goes missing from his Cannes hideaway after a brief and fiery marriage to a woman half his age, the lusty lord becomes the epicenter of an international manhunt that turns up four different versions of every story, all of them blood-soaked. The next time Christopher and Eric take a trip to this tawdry part of the true crime world, they’ll be sure to buy travel insurance.
(If this episode sounds different from our others, that’s because it was recorded remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to be back in our usual studio space as soon as public health advisories allow.)
