I love the Fletch books, what a great series. The writing is very witty and dialog driven. A good, shut your brain off and enjoy type of book.

The early Fletcher books were more interesting and funny. This book, as with the other Fletcher books, was entertaining but only mildly so.
Dreladred
This book is not much of a mystery story-- the plot is almost predictable. I read it but was not impressed by this FLetch !
Ann
Excellent, product as described, delivered as promised.

Love the Fletch/Flynn Series. I read these when I was much younger - I purchased them for my son.

Fletch as a wealthy person seems inconsistent with previous experiences. Nevertheless, if there had been an explanation of where the money came from it would have helped. Maybe I missed it in a prior book but I think I've read them all.

As described
Fletch's Fortune has a great high concept plot, which is really saying something for Fletch novels which all seem to have a high concept start from a sprinting position. It also allows for a fairly closed setting and lots of satire. The fact that Fletch is somehow both journalist and not journalist allows for some interesting dynamics.

For a parlor-type mystery, there were almost too many characters/suspects, but given the potential size of the conference, I'll let Mcdonald take a flier on it as he did an excellent job fleshing out each of the characters to make them unique enough to stand on their own without giving up too much. I also suspect that he may have thought of cute little character descriptions over one afternoon and then assigned them to people as they appeared--some of them are really delicious particularly:
"The man’s shoulders were little more than outriggers for his ears."

One of my favorite constructs in this book that sets it apart from others in the series were the conference session titles being used deliciously as chapter openers. Many of them provide some hilarious counterpoint to the plot and certainly add to the humor of the overall piece.

Another interesting turn was the romantic portion of the plot in which one of Fletch's unfortunate choices of pseudonym finally gets him into trouble, though not in the way in which one might otherwise suppose. The sub-plot with Freddie was hilarious and tense without actually coming to a final head. (Writing this after I've now read "Fletch and the Man Who" makes me even more glad that it didn't. Their relationship is like the unrequited Sam/Rebecca pairing in the NBC television series "Cheers", which this book preceded by several years.)

The humor at Crystal's expense was all great if perhaps maybe even too much, though it was done with enough warmth that it's obvious that Fletch is doing his part in the nicest way. (Now that I'm in the midst of "Son of Fletch", it's interesting to think back on his relationship with Crystal.)

This book read very quickly and was well plotted though the ending was perhaps all too quick. I would have preferred a slower unfolding in the third act. At least in this one, we get the payoff in the end of seeing some of Fletch's machinations coming to a head all at once--something we didn't get to see in "Fletch" when he set both of his ex-wives up to unwittingly move in together with each other while thinking that they were getting back together with him.

This is sure to rank at the top of my favorite Fletch novels by the time I'm done with the series.
