This 4th is probably my favorite Fletch novel, so far. Fletch is up to his usual antics, of course. However, in this installment, the focus mostly remains on the mystery that has directly affected him. When assigned to do a story on a small company, Fletch quoted the president, whose recent memos he had been shown. Once the article is published, though, Fletch is fired because that man has been dead for 6 to 12 months. As a journalist, Fletch can't stand that the evidence doesn't add up to what he knows to be true and so sets out to find the truth. I really enjoyed it. ( )

Fletch drove home in the dark, but the lights in his apartments were on and Moxie came to the door as soon as she heard his key in the lock. She was wearing an apron and nothing else.
"Gee," Fletch said. "Just like a wife." ( )

't is feest waar men Fletch leest.
U weet het inmiddels wel: ik ben behoorlijk verknocht aan de non-chalante reporter van The News Tribune die constant in de clinch ligt met zijn meerderen (ditmaal hoort daar ontslag bij) en zich met zijn vlotte babbel in elke situatie overeind weet te houden.

Deze episode leest erg vlot, kent een strakke opbouw en een goed uitgewerkte plot. Die plot zal bij verschijning (zo'n 40 jaar geleden) wel wat heftiger aangekomen zijn dan bij de modale lezer van vandaag, maar dat doet het boek niets tekort.

Dikke vriendjes, die Fletch en ik. (Al weet ik niet of mijn dochter daarmee thuis moet komen ( )
