Summary

Winner of the Edgar Award for Best First Novel

A Booklist Pick of Upcoming Titles on Audio

Fletch, investigative reporter extraordinaire, can’t be bothered with deadlines or expense-account budgets when it comes to getting his story.

Working undercover at the beach to dig up a drug-trafficking scheme for his next blockbuster piece, Fletch is invited into a much deeper narrative. Alan Stanwyk, CEO of Collins Aviation and all-around family man, mistakes the reporter for a strung-out vagabond and asks him for a favor: kill him and escape to Brazil with $50,000. Intrigued, Fletch can’t help but dig into this suspicious deal he’s being offered.

Dodging the shady beach police as his case begins to break open, and with his temperamental editor Clara pushing for his article, he soon discovers that Stanwyk has a lot to hide and this plan is anything but what it seems.

Review Quotes

“I couldn’t stop at 101 words. I couldn’t stop at one page. I had to reread the whole book. And then the next and then the next. And I don’t think I’ll be the only one who still finds that old hook as sharp as ever. The movie may have stunk, but the sentiment holds true: Fletch lives.”

Mystery Scene

“Gregory Mcdonald’s Fletch novels are the pinnacle of California sunshine noir—twisty, smart-alecky, and very, very human. I. M. Fletcher is a ‘detective’ in a world that’s determined to drown him in its petty mysteries. Fletch is the tanned, not-as-amoral cousin of Highsmith’s Tom Ripley, and one of the great literary creations.”

Patton Oswalt

“A top-rate thriller told in stripped-down language that races to a climax.”
