What was the title of that episode? I know there's a half-hour episode called "The Poisonville Caper," which I presume is adapted from RED HARVEST, and there was two-parter called "The Blood Money Caper" which, of course, derived from the first Op novel, BLOOD MONEY. Also, many of the Op short stories were adapted for the SPADE series, but usually with the original titles either wholly intact (e.g. "Zigzags of Treachery") or easily recognizable (e.g. "The Corkscrew Caper"). What did they call THE DAIN CURSE when they adapted it for radio?
