As a fledgling reporter, Fletch is doing more flailing than anything else. That, and floating around from department to department, trying to figure out where he fits in. His managing editor's got him pegged for the society pages, but the kind of society Fletch gets involved with is anything but polite.

His first big interview, a millionaire lawyer with a crooked streak and an itch to give away some of his ill-gotten gains, ends up dead in the News-Tribune's parking lot before Fletch can ask question number one. So Fletch ends up going after the murderer instead, and ends up learning a thing or two about crime and punishment.

At the same time, he's supposed to be covering (or maybe uncovering) a health spa that caters to all of its clients' needs, and he gets hired as a very personal trainer. Never mind that he's supposed to be getting married at the end of the week; Fletch has a few other engagements to take care of first.

Listener Opinions

    " Another smart funny mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan | 12/2/2013

    " It's the first Fletch book chronolically (although written many years later). It tells the story of how Flecth became an investigative reporter. Fun and fast with all the humor, wit, and wonderful things that makes Fletch Fletch! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 11/29/2013

    " I have to track down the rest of these... just fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 11/27/2013

    " Fun, because I like them mysteries. But scattered, not very compelling, and the dialogue, rather than walking that fence of clever-but-real like in the first book, was pretty overwrought. Doesn't mean I won't read the rest of 'em, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 11/20/2013

    " In my opinion, the best of the bunch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 tony | 10/30/2013

    " this book made me want to become a reporter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Brien | 9/22/2013

    " This book is a joyride through a newspaper (remember those?) where a young journalist breaks his way into the big time by solving a murder, exposing corruption, and incidentally writing a news article or two. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 10/24/2012

    " There were a couple of laughs-outloud but by and large I prefer Flynn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pulpbomb | 11/26/2010

    " I love Gregory McDonald & the Fletch series. I'm currently rereading them in order as I read them all willy nilly as I could find them in used book stores the first time around. Funny funny funny. I love the way he turns a phrase. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/30/2010

    " Solid, witty, slight and slim. Standard and enjoyable McDonald. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bradley | 8/23/2009

    " This was pretty alright - funny, noirish, 90% dialog. I have a suspicious that I will like the first Fletch book more. This book has made me want to read the first Fletch book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 8/13/2008

    " Four stars is a little generous but three stars would have been parsimonious to a greater degree, so. The Fletch series is somewhat formulaic but it's a good, entertaining formula so I'm not complaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Stribley | 4/30/2008

    " Good, clean fun. Not too much thinking required. But more than I remembered from reading my first Fletch novel years ago. Maybe stuff went over my head then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mr. Steve | 10/19/2007

    " Fletch mysteries are funny and actually very surprising. This is one of the weaker ones I have read. It is the story of how Fletch got started -his "first" mystery if you will. Definitely not his best work, but I enjoyed in anyhow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terryann Saint | 9/4/2007

    " My cover is different, red paperback by Warner books. Copyright 1985. Pretty sure that does NOT afect the quality of the writing, which is excellent. "
