The Gatewood Caper : Adventures of the Federated Tec episode 2

August 23, 2020

"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 two, "The Gatewood Caper", adapted by Pete Lutz from Hammett's second published story, in 1923. We hope you enjoy it and will join us for future episodes.

ADVENTURES OF THE FEDERATED TEC WAS CONCEIVED BY PETE LUTZ AND DEVELOPED BY PETE LUTZ AND MARK SLADE. "The Gatewood Caper" was dramatized, directed and produced by Pete Lutz. Mixing and post-production was by Daniel French of Fishbonius Sound Design.
