Confess, Fletch (1976) by Gregory McDonald
This is the second book written about Irwin Maurice "Fletch" Fletcher. The events take place after Fletch (1974) but not directly. Fletchs adventures in Brazil wouldnt be written until Carioca Fletch (1984). Fletch is now an art critic living in Cagna, Italy and engaged to be married (again). His fiancÚ is the daughter of an Italian Count who has been kidnapped and murdered recently. Fletch is dispatched to by her to Boston to recover painting which were stolen from the family a number of years ago. Upon arriving in Boston he discovers a naked female dead in the apartment he is borrowing. With police on his back hounding him to confess, Fletch must discover the real murderer while trying to locate his fiancÚs familys painting. Compounding matters is the fact that the inspector assigned to the murder, Francis Xavier Flynn, is Fletchs intellectual equal. The ending is a doozy.
Easily the second best Fletch novel. The story runs fast and furiously and the exchanges between Fletch and Flynn are great. Flynn is one of the only characters in the Fletch novels that is as witty as Fletch is and the resulting dialogue is hilarious. The twist ending will throw you for a loop no matter how prepared you are. You may find yourself reading the last couple chapters over again just to make what you read is really on paper. A perfect sequel to perfect beginning.
