Fletch and the Widow Bradley When Fletch finds a wallet with $10,000 in cash inside, he doesn’t realize it’s the last piece of good luck he’s going to see for a while. Because when he calls in to the News-Tribune, he discovers a story he’s written is causing quite a sensation, and not the good kind. He might just be out of a job permanently.

Fletch and the Widow Bradley Fletch may have more questions than answers on his hands, but he knows he’s a pretty good reporter, and if he’s going to get his reputation back, not to mention his job, he’s going to have to get to the bottom of more than one mystery.… (mer)

is Bradley dead, no he's a woman
  ritaer | Apr 10, 2020 |
Chronologically, Fletch and the Widow Bradley precedes the original Fletch books although the author assumes you'll be clever enough to figure it out. Indeed, here, Fletch actually cares about losing his job. He has yet to acquire his villa on the Italian Riviera. Also of note is that, despite the appearance of Moxie in this story, there is no real connection with "Fletch's Moxie" which takes place chronologically years later after Moxie becomes a star.

This story takes us on a journey into the art of reporting and the difficulties one might encounter when one quotes recent memos of a long-dead CEO. Perhaps that small faux pas might piss the hell out of your publisher. But a good reporter is like a bulldog once he gets his teeth into something and that's just what is pulled off in this book. The pace might be a bit languid for someone used to lots of action, but what makes this one really work is that McDonald keeps a steady pace throughout as well as a singleminded focus. The one real tangent - Fletch's life as a sort of Mother Teresa type of Good Samaritan is a good foil against the main plot. ( )

Very enjoyable, but light reading. Like all Fletch books I've read so far - some very funny, quirky bits tucked in alongside a decent investigation mystery. Fletch is fired from the paper for reporting on a business story and quoting the CEO who had been dead for over one year. But was he dead? or had he been murdered? Fletch tries to get his job back by getting to the bottom of the mystery. Wrapped up nicely and even though the book is over 30 years old (1981) - it isn't overly dated - which says quite a bit about the writing. ( )

From Library Journal This duo represent the 1981 and 1985 installments, respectively, in the author's ongoing Fletch series, which now includes nine novels. The former finds reporter/ investigator Fletch in trouble with his editor after quoting a business mogul who apparently is dead, but if he has shuffled off his mortal coil, who then is signing his name to rather large checks? In the latter volume, Fletch investigates the very complete services provided to clients at a luxurious spa. The murder of a millionaire he is supposed to interview turns his attentions elsewhere. But are the two connected?

I liked it more than three stars but less than four. Good not great addition to the series. ( )
