Confess, Fletch - Gregory McDonald What a fun ride this was.

Confess, Fletch is number two in the Fletch series and he's getting married. Again. Even after all the alimony problems he had in Fletch. Duh, it's Fletch, he won't learn.

He's been living in Italy but flew to Boston to try to locate his fiancee's stolen inheritance, priceless pieces of art including a Picasso and Degas sculpture.

Apparently he's no longer a working stiff, investigative reporter for the Chicago Times. But it's Fletch and he just can't give it up, investigating especially when he's the number one suspect. But he can't find the priceless art if he's in jail, so trying to find the real murderer and the art work at the same time...and then women, his downfall.

Chevy Chase played Fletch in the movie and here are some lines from the movie I thought you would like...the lines are much like lines in the book, too.

Fletch: It was something your wife said while we were in bed together. She said we had the same build. From the waist up I imagine.

Gail You ordered lunch to my room.
Fletch: Well, I knew that's where my mouth would be.

Chevy Chase as Fletch is the Movie with the same title

This series is such a fun ride...easy reading; fun characters, well-drawn, too; sharply developed storyline which unfolds like the pages of the book; and quick and witty lines.

When I got towards the end, I laughed out loud. Last time I remember doing that was an early Elvis Cole. This was just a fun ride from the first page to the last page.

Thanks to my Goodreads friend and author Harv Griffin who shared with me his TwitterArt and how I looked when I laughed at final resolution. It was just a lot of fun to read, like the first book.

My happy face!

I'm not even counting the number of times I used 'fun' in this short review, but dammit, it was...fun, that is
