A Next Act-favorite comedy by Michael Hollinger.

It’s 1952 – America’s gonna blow the H-bomb, the voters like Ike and everybody loves Lucy on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Joe McCarthy’s daughter just got engaged to a Russian spy and hard-boiled detective Maggie Pelletier has to figure out what Velveeta cheese and kippers can tell her about the stiff they just fished out of Boston Harbor. Hang onto your fedora: the cops are quick, the jokes are rapid-fire … and the spies are just plain hot, if you catch our drift.

Cez says: “Author Michael Hollinger is a very funny man with a great comedic sense of the film noir spoof, and yet each of his characters has heart, each one confronts obstacles and each one is allowed to win in the end. Tracking down foreign spies has never been this much fun!”
