Season 14 EP 1: The Continental Op stars in Part one of "Red Harvest"




Our first stop in Season 14 is a little 'burg called Personville up in Montana, as seedy and corrupt as they come. We'll be meeting up with our buddy, we just call him the Continental Op- no need for first names. 
So, join us as we dive into hardboiled fiction by starting with Dashiell Hammett's "Red Harvest" also known as "The Cleansing of Poisonville". There's a real rogue's gallery of heels for the Op to contend with and plenty of action and corruption for us to wade through. It's a heck of a way to kick off a new season!
