It’s 1952: America’s working on the H-bomb and watching I Love Lucy every Monday night…Senator Joe McCarthy’s daughter just got engaged to a Communist spy…and police detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped a body in the Boston Bay. Red Herring is a screwball romantic comedy, a hard-boiled mystery, and a total spoof of film noir movies, the Cold War, and America in the ’50s.

“A fun, engaging farcical romp with a cleverly complex plot and a loving heart”
–Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
