About this show

Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. It's 1952: America's on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower's on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy's on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy's daughter was just engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the harbor - or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. Michael Hollinger's Red Herring is a blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.
