Holed up in a small, cell-like office in the Flatiron Building, editor Charlie Spicer has been churning out one true crime book after another for over 30 years. He's quick to point out he's not the Marquis de Sade; his personal life is entirely separate from the macabre stories he peddles. He's just got a good eye for a gruesome yarn, and Spicer is finally taking his true crime expertise to a world where the genre thrives: podcasts.
Enter "Case Closed," a new show from Macmillan Podcasts, hosted by Charlie Spicer. In Season 1, we learn about a Georgia man who is shot in broad daylight in the parking lot of his son's nursery. A minivan pulls up, fires four times, and peels off. Who killed Rusty Sneiderman? Is the prosecution on to something when their search brings them to the doorstep of Rusty's wife Andrea and her boss Hemy? Is $2 million in life insurance enough to turn a wife against her husband?
Based on the book Crazy For You by Associated Press reporter Michael Fleeman, Season 1 of "Case Closed" explores the dark underbelly of fidelity and desire.
