Offering up brisk, tightly written plots and a stellar cast of characters both new and old, Confess, Fletch finds our incorrigible protagonist back in deep waters once again. Fletch, now newly engaged and happily living out his days in Italy, finds himself embroiled in yet another scandal. His soon-to-be father-in-law has been kidnapped and is now presumed dead, and the priceless collection of rare art that belongs to his fiancee's family has been stolen. Ever the investigative reporter, he receives a tip about the missing art that lands him in Boston, where he walks right into a murder scene in his apartment. What clearly looks like a setup to the unfazed Fletch looks quite different to the detective assigned to the case, Mr. Francis Xavier Flynn. But even if the case is seemingly cut-and-dry, Flynn is reluctant to arrest the only suspect that stands before him. Now under the detective's watchful eye, Fletch must try to clear his name and search for the missing paintings, all while his gorgeous future mother-in-law works to persuade him for help the best way she knows how-seduction.… (més)

In Confess, Fletch, the second book of the series, McDonald offers us another taste of a reworking of a classic pulp theme. As many pulp novels begin, this book begins with the main character discovering a beautiful naked woman in his rental, dead. Normally, in a pulp, you'd have the main character hiding the corpse and furiously covering his tracks and fleeing into the night because he knows that all the evidence points to him. The story has femme fatales, murder, kidnapping, lushes, seductions, international intrigue, and all kinds of fascinating characters.

What turns that classic set-up on its head, however, is that Fletch isn't too concerned. with being charged with murder. He has other things on his mind like stolen paintings, a countess who wants to seduce him, his fiancé in Italy, and other things. So we have his calm conversations with Inspector Flynn and the cat and mouse game they play with each other as Fletch calmly goes about his business. This is not an action-packed story. There aren't car chases and gunfights. It's a much more subtle story. But it's really good and a real satisfying read. ( )

Great book! Great travel read. Detective stories or romance are big sellers in airports. I've been meaning to read this for some time. This is an original paperback copy from 1976. Excellent terse writing. Fletcher is an ex-marine, former reporter, current art critic, and engaged to be married until he lands in Boston's Logan airport to find a deceased person in his rented apartment. I first enjoyed the Chevy Chase movie where Fletch appears there more as a reporter than a person doing pseudo-police work. Surprised how good as well as funny this was. This is not the movie on which the book is based on. The movie is from the original Fletch book. ( )

Review Has all the zest, humor and spare lean prose of its forerunner: it has a beautifully complex plot which leaves you squirming at the final sentence and a set of slippery characters who never turn out to be just exactly what they seem. Confess, Fletch is as stimulent slipped into your nightcap that will have you up to dawn no matter what you think you have to do tomorrow.” --Joe Gores From the Inside Flap Confess, Fletch
The flight from Rome had been pleasant enough, even if the business he was on wasn?t exactly. His Italian fianc?e?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 nineteenth-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. ( )
