a 47 yr old mystery at Carnival in Brazil
  ritaer | Mar 23, 2020 |
Carioca Fletch takes Fletch and deposits him in Rio in the middle of Carnival week. Part travelogue, part mystery, part comedy, the story has Fletch accused of murder and followed halfway around the world by a bereaved widow, sealed in a coffin, possessed by the spirit of a man who died forty years ago, burying bodies at sea, beaten to an inch of his life, confused, dismayed, a stranger in a strange land.

This isn't a plot-driven story as much as it's a series of glimpses of a few days in Rio and various odd events. It doesn't have the format or structure of a traditional novel. Don't read this expecting a story that slowly builds to a climax. It's more like watching an ever-changing parade. ( )

Some good carnival scenes, but Fletch's sardonic view of the world doesn't play as well when he's the privileged outsider, rather than the underprivileged outsider. ( )

OK - but not great. Fletch is in Brazil and has no job but does have a girlfriend. He gets embroiled in solving a murder 47 years in the past when he is mistaken for the dead man by his widow. Hijinx galore around Carnival with Fletch getting no sleep for 3 days and nearly killed by his former murderer. Enjoyable, but not fantastic. ( )

Review "Mcdonald is so smart, terse and witty that he is an outright pleasure to read. I'm going back now and read all the Fletch books in order." --Peter Straub From the Inside Flap Carioca Fletch
Fletch?s trip to Brazil wasn?t exactly planned. But it?s Carnival time in Rio and he has plenty of money, thanks to a little arrangement made stateside. And it took him no time to hook up with the luscious Laura Soares. Fletch is beginning to relax, just a little.
