Publisher's Summary

Confess, Fletch

The 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, Fletch

Inspector 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, Fletch

With 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.

Excellent

As good as the first book (which was similar to one of the movies). This one is nothing like either movie.

The only downside to this book is it doesn’t address what happened after the previous book. There’s one sentence and that’s it to explain a year or two of time and questions. Then it’s straight onto a new mystery.

Another pitfall to the book is there’s a lot of names and at some points I got confused who the hell was being talked about.

Overall though it’s still a great book and a good read. I recommend it. Best listen to the first book first though.

A Great Fletch!

Loved the first one and the follow up is as good if not better. No wonder the first two won back to back Edgars. Fast paced and all the twists and turns you expect. Cool plot, great characters and the writing is everything you expect from McDonald. Narration is fantastic! You will enjoy this book!

Fletch and Flynn together

One of my favorite Fletch books. The story is good, but his interactions with Flynn is the best part. So happy the series is on audio, just hope they release the Flynn series too.

Macdonald is a master, still miss Gardner

I loved this series back when it was read by Grover Gardner. Miller does MacDonald’s wit and panache justice, But Gardner puts everything he reads over and above. I’ll still listen to Miller read MacDonald, but I’ll continue to miss the Fletch voice I remember.

Very dated

I loved these books when they first came out. And now I didn’t like this one at all. And I couldn’t figure out why but I think that a lot of stuff in it is very dated. I was not wild about this. I would not waste a credit for sure

Frustrating to listen to

Can't stand the Flynn character, very annoying. I don't think I will be listening to Flynn books. I had previously read several Fletch books, years ago. Thought I would listen to them again. This was one I hadn't read. I am glad I didn't waste a credit on it.

Fletch AND Flynn

This should be really good, a meeting up of both FX Flynn and IM Fletcher, but unfortunately Dan John Miller is not as good at Flynn's voice and accent as is Donald Corren. He makes Flynn sound much shorter and weaker, and not nearly so charming. His voices for both Fletch and the Countess are excellent though.

Both Fletch and Flynn are superb at gathering intelligence and wrapping it all up together with a neat bow by the end, but Fletch nearly blew it here. The actual culprit was a letdown, and the ending a bit anticlimactic.

I would love more Flynn books with more of the delightful Donald Corren.

Excellent

This one started out with a bang. I loved the characters and the humor of it all. Sorry but I liked the guy that has read the other books. Miller was very good but I guess I was just used to the other reader. Stupid of me forgetting his name . Really an excellent book.

Great twists

Not as amusing as the first in series but great plot leaving plenty of mystery.
