Young Irwin Maurice Fletcher, a.k.a. Fletch, the eager and inventive new reporter for the News-Tribune, is having a hard time finding his place at the newspaper. After a few “mishaps” writing questionable headlines and creatively worded obituaries, Managing Editor Frank Jaffe appoints Fletch to the society pages, where he’s assigned to cover a generous yet surprising donation to an art museum from a high-powered defense attorney.

But before he can secure an interview, the attorney is shot dead in the newspaper’s parking lot, no witnesses in sight. To Fletch’s chagrin, the story is reassigned to the boorish lead investigative reporter Biff Wilson, and he’s placed on a seemingly unrelated story, some society pages fluff piece about an all-women-trainers health club that’s rumored to offer a lot of “extras.”

Undeterred by Biff’s threatening nature and determined to dig up the dirt on both stories, Fletch collects a cast of engaging characters and strings together the scandalous clues that lead to an eventful and unexpected conclusion.

  • Fletch Won is a contender for best in the series.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • Mcdonald delivers Fletch’s sleuthings through snappy dialogue-vignettes, some of them featuring likably eccentric foils for Fletch’s own smart-alecky repartee…Bright and fast and sassy.”

    " 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 | 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 | 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. | 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 | 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. "
