When Fletch's newfound son, Jack, decides to help a former lover in distress, his kindness brings him trouble. Shana Staufel is about to marry the son of a multimillionaire, the eccentric inventor of the perfect mirror. But her prenuptial bliss is marred by fears that someone is trying to kill Chester Radliegh, her fiance's father. Jack agrees to go undercover to investigate and is drawn into a bizarre and increasingly deadly family drama.
Jack's arrival is marked with an explosion in the research lab which instantly kills a scientist. Obviously the intended victim, Chester Radliegh is in serious danger. What Jack doesn't know is that the explosion is only the beginning of a killer's quest to murder the inventor. As things heat up, Jack learns there are more suspects than guests at the Radliegh estate. He also knows that if he isn't careful, he could be the next "accidental" fatality.
As he runs out of solutions, Jack is left with one alternative. But "Dad," his last, best hope, is busy trying to help his son's mother recover from diet madness. With some misgivings, Fletch interrupts his worthy endeavor to help Jack out of another predicament, thrusting the duo back into action.

There. Now I've finished the eleven Fletch's. Note to self: just because the first two in a series are brilliant doesn't mean the next nine will be. Love how they are non-sequential and dialogue driven, but the suspension of disbelief was burdensome. Read full review

About the author (1994)

Gregory Mcdonald was educated at Harvard University and, at the same time, started up an international yacht trouble-shooting business to help pay his way through college. In 1964, Mcdonald was hired at the Boston Globe. In his seven years with them, he worked as a writer for the Sunday Magazine, a critic, the Arts and Humanities Editor, a critic-at-large columnist and a member of the Editorial Board. He was hired by publisher Davis Taylor to make the Globe more competitive. With Mcdonald, the readership soared but advertisers pulled out, in part because he wrote openly against the Vietnam War, one of the first journalists ever to do so, and for arguing for Civil, Women's and Gay Rights. It was said that a group of fellow employees beat him up in the Globe parking lot for the stance he took in a controversial time period. Mcdonald has written many mysteries including the Fletch, Flynn, Son of Fletch and Skylar series. Some of the titles included in those series are Exits and Entrances, A World Too Wide, and Safekeeping. His novel The Brave was elected Trophees 813 Best Foreign Novel 1997 in France. Mcdonald has twice been the winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award, a recipient of humanitarian and peoples rights awards and is the past president of the Mystery Writers of America. He was suffering from cancer when he died on September 7, 2008 at the age of 71.
