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,
Republican General Dwight Eisenhower, then president of Columbia University and formerly supreme allied commander
in World War II, and Democrat Adlai Stevenson, governor of Illinois,
are on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy's on Monday nights. Meanwhile,
Senator Joe McCarthy's daughter just got 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.
A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.
