This volume of McDonald's Fletch series is a humorous look at the Hollywood movie industry and the nature of stardom even though it all takes place on the Florida coast. Features are an on-screen murder taking place with all camera ras rolling, a stealthy getaway by Fletch with a picnic basket and the chief suspect super-sexy movie Star Moxie, a funhouse filled with Hollywood crazies like an altered version of a murder mystery weekend in the Catskills, rioting locals, race horses, and Cuba. The opening scene was perfect as was the closing, but the middle seemed to drag with a whole lot of chitter chatter. A fairly decent read that fits in well in the Fletch universe, but it almost lost me wading through the middle ( )

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 anyoneĂ‚Â’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, O.L., 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 HollywoodĂ‚Â’s elite, Fletch is increasingly amazed at how ruthless the movie business can be. ( )
