"Adventures of the Federated Tec"! A series of 8 initial episodes of 7 dramatized stories featuring Dashiell Hammett's nameless detective. We call him the Federated Tec, but you probably know him as something else. We've chosen Hammett's first few stories that have moved into the public domain, and have done our best to stay true to the originals -- and why not? The originals are just fine, as far as we're concerned.
So here is episode five, "Bodies Piled Up", adapted by Pete Lutz from Hammett's fifth published Op story, in 1923. We hope you enjoy it and will join us for future episodes.
