"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."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Fletch comic mystery series has had it humorous highlights over the years, based on the life of journalist and one time political media adviser, but here McDonald passes the baton to Fletch's son, who naturally is named "Jack", to continue on the now uninspiring Fletch series.

Besides Fletch meeting his long lost son, "Son of Fletch" covers their infiltration of a white supremacist group in Alabama, who, as you can imagine, are depicted as the dregs of humanity (as they should), a reflection back to an earlier Fletch adventure in Brazil, and the mystery of who exactly this young man claiming to be Fletch's son actually is.

"Son of Fletch" is only for the McDonald completests amongst you. ( )

From Publishers Weekly Despite a couple of shaky plot turns, readers will gladly succumb to McDonald's laconic wit and smooth pacing in this 10th entry in the Fletch series. Ex-reporter Irwin Maurice Fletcher--just Fletch, please--is in semi-retirement in Tennessee where, after three marriages, he has settled in with Carrie, a plainspoken "Southern country woman." One dark and stormy night (yes!), Fletch's heretofore unknown son, Jack, arrives, accompanied by a South African killer, a kidnapper and a drug dealer who escaped from federal prison with him. Beguiled by 20-ish Jack, Fletch is soon effectively in charge of getting the escapees away from the cops and in to Alabama where a group of white supremacists have encamped to await their leader, the killer. Although in looks and manners, Jack surely has not fallen far from the paternal tree, Fletch still seeks proof of their relationship, but is soon more worried about the dangers awaiting the young man in the camp. Fletch wins the day in great style as the supremacists, cartoonish screw-ups barely capable of organizing a beer blast, mainly self-destruct. Fletch, Carrie and the enterprising Jack, however, are all fully dimensioned characters who rate readers' attention and applause. Mystery Guild alternate.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews Back for his first adventure since Fletch Too (1986), the irrepressible reporter/detective comes home with his latest squeeze, Carrie, to his Tennessee homestead to find four escaped convicts in residence--one of them identifying himself as Jack Fletch Faoni, Fletch's long-lost--well, unsuspected--son. It would be too easy to just turn these guys in, so Fletch gives Jack a loaded gun, plays along with him, and lands up to his neck in an Alabama camp of white- supremacist crazies. But wait! Is Jack really Fletch, Jr.? A few of Fletch's trademark phone calls reveal that no Jack Faoni has ever served time in the federal pen, and that Crystal Faoni's son is spending the summer in Greece.... More boisterous high jinks than mystery, like a class reunion of stand-up guys resting on their rsum‚s. Even so: welcome back, Fletch. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
