Fletch by Gregory McDonald

The first of nine novels in the Fletch series and a winner of the Edgar Allan Poe award for the best mystery novel of 1974, Fletch is as fun as a detective novel can be! Though the story is pure grit and gravel, McDonald writes with a lighthearted pen and sense of witty irony that moves the story along at a brisk pace. I.M. Fletcher is an investigative reporter looking into widespread drug dealing at a local beach. While posing as a beach bum, he is approached by a wealthy businessman who asks Fletch to murder him for $50,000. As Fletch looks into this bizarre request, webs are woven, shadows get long and deceit abounds. This novel was also made into a popular movie starring Chevy Chase in 1985.
