English Book Collectors (Classic Reprint): William Younger Fletcher
In Fletch´s Moxie, the prolific Gregory Mcdonald tests his incomparable investigative journalist once again with a caper that is as perfectly plotted as Fletch is brilliant. It seems just about everyone in Hollywood had a reason to want Steve Peterman dead. But how someone managed to put a knife in his back on a live broadcast without being seen is anyone´s guess. Unfortunately for Fletch, his girlfriend, Moxie Mooney, a huge star at the box office, is also the number-one suspect. With the police asking way too many questions, Fletch whisks Moxie and her drunken father off to Key West for a little privacy. But before he can even check out the beach, the rest of the suspects decide to check in. Now, in a house full of Hollywood´s elite, Fletch is increasingly amazed at how ruthless the movie business can be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan John Miller.

After a few delays and without the benefit of a rehearsal, it looks like Fletch is finally getting hitched. It´s a small affair - just a few friends, the bride´s parents, the groom´s mother, and, just maybe, his father. Except Fletch´s father is supposed to be dead.But somebody delivered the letter, signed ´´Fletch Senior´´ and containing an invitation (and a pair of plane tickets) to visit the old man in Nairobi for the honeymoon. Never mind Fletch and his bride were planning a ski trip to Colorado.No sooner does the couple land in Africa then the search for Fletch´s father begins. There´s a murder at the airport, reports of the old man´s incarceration, and the hospitality (and evasiveness) offered by Pop´s best friend, who flies them across the continent, just a step or two behind - or maybe ahead of - the old rascal. 1.

As a fledgling reporter, Fletch is doing more flailing than anything else. That and floating around from department to department trying to figure out where he fits. His managing editor´s got him pegged for the society pages, but the kind of society Fletch gets involved with is anything but polite.His first big interview, a millionaire lawyer with a crooked streak and an itch to give away some of his ill-gotten gains, ends up dead in the News-Tribune´s parking lot before Fletch can ask question number one. So Fletch goes after the murderer instead and ends up learning a thing or two about crime and punishment.At the same time, he´s supposed to be covering (or maybe uncovering) a health spa that caters to all its clients´ needs and gets hired as a very personal trainer. Never mind that he´s supposed to be getting married at the end of the week; Fletch has a few other engagements to take care of first. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan John Miller.

Fletch´s trip to Brazil wasn´t exactly planned. But it´s Carnival time in Rio, and he has plenty of money, thanks to a little arrangement he made stateside. It took him no time to hook up with the luscious Laura Soares. Fletch is beginning to relax, just a little.But between the American widow who seems to be following Fletch and the Brazilian widow who´s fingered Fletch as her long-dead husband, he suddenly doesn´t have much time to enjoy the present or even get a wink of sleep.A 30-year-old unsolved murder, a more recent suicide, an inconvenient heart attack - somehow Fletch is connected to all of them, and one of those connections might just shorten his own life. From Rio to Bahia and back again at the height of Carnival, Fletch has to keep moving or get stopped cold. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan John Miller.

Confess, FletchThe flight from Rome had been pleasant enough, even if the business he was on wasn´t exactly. His Italian fiancee´s father had been kidnapped and presumably murdered, and Fletch is on the trail of a stolen art collection that is her only patrimony. But when he arrives in his apartment to find a dead body, things start to get complicated.Confess, FletchInspector Flynn found him a little glib for someone who seemed to be the only likely suspect in a pretty clear case of homicide. He wasn´t exactly uncooperative, but it wasn´t like he was entirely forthcoming either. And Flynn wasn´t entirely convinced that the 19th-century Western artist Edgar Arthur Tharp really occupied most of Fletch´s thoughts.Confess, FletchWith the police on his tail and a few other things to do beside prove his own innocence, Fletch makes himself at home in Boston, renting a van, painting it black, and breaking into a private art gallery - that is, when he´s not ´´entertaining´´ his future mother-in-law and visiting with the good Inspector Flynn and his family. 1.

A girl jumped off the motel´s roof. Five minutes ago.´´Give it to me straight. Does the girl have anything to do with us? I mean, with the campaign? The presidential candidate?´´It´s your job, Fletch, to make damned sure she didn´t.When Fletch arrives as the new press representative for Governor Caxton Wheeler´s presidential campaign, he isn´t sure which mystery to solve first - what his new job actually is, or why the campaign has been leaving dead women in its tracks.He finds himself on the other side of the press, a human shield, deflecting the same questions he is asking himself. Are the murders just coincidence, or is a coldhearted killer looking for a job in the White House?When the campaign shifts into high gear, Fletch´s skills are working overtime in a desperate bid of his own to find the killer and to make sure the governor doesn´t lose any more votes. 1.

When Fletch learns there are four ex-cons on the loose in his part of the county, little does he suspect that one of the scruffy and very dangerous men will claim to be the son he never knew - a son about whom he was never even told, in fact. But when a muddy and bedraggled young man accosts him in his study, it doesn´t take our wily reporter and investigator long to surmise this kid might well be his son. When Fletch meets the kid´s compatriots, he wonders how either of them is going to get out of this situation unscathed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan John Miller.

Eager to get back out on the streets, he quickly compiles what he thinks is a well-executed article, complete with quotes from the chairman of the board´s recent memos. But when he fails to do his due diligence when researching the company and its associates, he finds himself in hot water...and now out of a job. The chairman has been dead for more than a year.Realizing his mistake, he visits the widow, Bradley, to make amends - and to ask a few simple questions. But her strange demeanor and puzzling answers leave Fletch perplexed. He can´t help but wonder: Why would a dead man still be writing memos to his associates? Is he even dead?With his interest now thoroughly piqued, fueled by his desire to get the real story and take back his job, Fletch puts his reporting skills to work as he dives into the mystery surrounding the Bradleys´ past. 1.
