We proudly present episode four, “The Black Hat that Wasn’t There”, adapted by Mark Slade from Dashiell Hammett’s fourth published Op story, “IT”, in 1923. We hope you enjoy it and will join us for future episodes. 

A businessman hires the Tec to locate his missing partner, who seems to have absconded with some very valuable bonds. Throw in a double love-triangle and you’ve got fireworks galore, and a very surprising conclusion!
