Description

“A top-rate thriller told in stripped-down language that races to a climax.” Washington Post

Winner of the Edgar Award for Best First Novel
A Booklist Pick of Upcoming Titles on Audio

Book one in the bestselling mystery series that brought to life an iconic literary antihero of subversion and schemes

Fletch, investigative reporter extraordinaire, can’t be bothered with deadlines or expense-account budgets when it comes to getting his story.

Working undercover at the beach to dig up a drug-trafficking scheme for his next blockbuster piece, Fletch is invited into a much deeper narrative. Alan Stanwyk, CEO of Collins Aviation and all-around family man, mistakes the reporter for a strung-out vagabond and asks him for a favor: kill him and escape to Brazil with $50,000. Intrigued, Fletch can’t help but dig into this suspicious deal he’s being offered.

Dodging the shady beach police as his case begins to break open, and with his temperamental editor Clara pushing for his article, he soon discovers that Stanwyk has a lot to hide and this plan is anything but what it seems.

Praise

“A top-rate thriller told in stripped-down language that races to a climax.” Washington Post

“I couldn’t stop at one page. I had to reread the whole book…I don’t think I’ll be the only one who still finds that old hook as sharp as ever.” Mystery Scene

“Narrator Dan John Miller dives into the role of Fletch with gusto. Miller’s tone reflects the ace reporter’s approach to his undercover disguise as a beach bum while working to ferret out drug sources for a big story.” AudioFile
