Red Herring: a diverting of attention from the main subject by introducing some irrelevant topic. The publisher's description claims that "there is buried in each story a diversion - let us simply call it a red herring - which Archer challenges his readers to uncover." While I failed to see the "red herrings" in these short stories, nevertheless I think they are the best tales among the eight or so short story collections from this superb storyteller.
