Praise

“It is books like this—light, fast, and funny—that gave paperbacks their good name, which is no revelation to fans of the earlier Fletch novels.” People

“Bright and entertaining…Fletch, as irreverent and smart as ever, is back.” New York Times Book Review

“Good old-fashioned page-turning fun, a flair that has been absent from novels of this sort since the days of vintage James Bond.” Penthouse

“Mcdonald had marvelously seductive fun in puncturing the posturing and pretensions of some media types. Part of the delight in reading the book is to match the characters to bylines or TV faces—a ruthless, back-stabbing press tycoon (approximately stabbed in the back by scissors at a journalism convention), a syndicated columnist who writes snide accusations under the guise of investigative reporting, a tough, earthy woman reporter, a cigar-chewing humorist, a network pontificator who speaks only in polysyllabic words, a television interviewer who has clawed her way to the top.” Washington Post
