Details: Cool, quirky, and quicker with a quip than a gun – the irrepressible Fletch is back in action. Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the best writers we have”, back-to-back Edgar Award winner Gregory Mcdonald now returns to the mystery series that started it all. As millions of Fletch fans already know, when it comes to crime-solving and wisecracking, Fletch has never been thrown a curve he cannot handle. But now, after nine books in the bestselling series, as well as two feature film adventures, Fletch faces the most difficult challenge of his career. When a young man comes calling under the most irregular of circumstances, even the unflappable Fletch is thrown for a loop. “Like frogs falling from trees in a hard southern rain”, the boy one day appears at Fletch’s barnyard door – and to complicate matters considerably, he’s claiming to be Fletch’s son. Given that the young stranger is sporting prison garb, that there has just been a jailbreak in the vicinity, and that he is traveling in the company of a man who takes pride in spouting unconscionable sentiments of white supremacist hate, Fletch reserves judgment before handing out any cigars. Yet as a reporter who has lived his life by the credo that we are all mysteries awaiting solution, Fletch realizes he has no choice but to sign on for what promises to be the most tumultuous ride of his life. Here is Fletch as you’ve never seen him before – older, wiser, but with his notoriously reckless sense of humor very much intact. Son of Fletch guarantees a new generation of first-rate detection, rollicking wit, and sheer page-turning suspense.
