Jonothan Cullinane's debut novel Red Herring is set in the midst of the bitter 1951 waterfront dispute and the global Red Menace hysteria.   The thriller brings together a private detective, Johnny Molloy, an ambitious journalist and some shady politicians and unionists.

As he tells Lynn Freeman, some of Jonothan's characters are historical figures, others are fiction.

Red Herring is published by Harper Collins.
