Fletch' Fortune is MacDonald's tribute to the age-old tradition of hotel murder mystery weekends where a bunch of people at an out-of the-way hotel usually in the Catskills get together, one is murdered, and everyone has a motive and is a suspect. Throw in the CIA, a little blackmail, and a bunch of piranhas known as journalists, and you have a story. Or do you? It is filled with clever, snarky dialogue, but way too much meaningless banter. It's a snoozefest and rather boring. ( )

Review “Bright and entertainingĂ‚Â…. Fletch, as irreverent and smart as ever, is back.” --The New York Times Book Review
“Good old-fashioned page-turning fun, a flair that has been absent from novels of this sort since the days of vintage James Bond.” *--Penthouse
* From the Inside Flap Fletch?s Fortune
He hadn?t been a practicing journalist for years, although people remembered him and he still has a few contacts. And he?s pretty sure he hasn?t paid his dues to the American Journalism Alliance anytime recently. But somebody has.
Fletch?s Fortune
Enjoying himself on the French Riviera, developing a killer tan, and sleeping with the neighbor?s wife, Fletch is feeling pretty flush. But when agents Eggers and Fabens show up with a little more information about Fletch than is comfortable and an invitation to the A.J.A. convention, how could he refuse?
Fletch?s Fortune
So he finds himself enlisted as a spy among his peers. But before he can even set up his surveillance, there?s a murder. And almost everybody?s a suspect. Because a lot of people were employed by Walter March, and most of them had a reason to hate him. ( )
