“A girl jumped off the motel’s roof. Five minutes ago.”

"Give it to me straight. Does the girl have anything to do with us? I mean, with the campaign? The presidential candidate?"

"It's your job, Fletch, to make damned sure she didn't."

FLETCH and the Man Who
When Fletch arrives as the new press representative for Governor Caxton Wheeler’s presidential campaign, he isn’t sure which mystery to solve first: what his new job actually is or why the campaign has been leaving dead women in its tracks.

FLETCH and the Man Who
He finds himself on the other side of the press, a human shield deflecting the questions he is asking himself. Are the murders just coincidence, or is a cold-hearted killer looking for a job in the White House?

FLETCH and the Man Who
When the campaign shifts into high gear, Fletch’s skills are working overtime in a desperate bid of his own to find the killer and to make sure the governor doesn’t lose any more votes.

Technology is forming a nervous system beneath the skin of Mother Earth. And you and I know that to avoid

After the Spiersville visit, it was discovered that someone had broken a window of the press bus with a rock. During the hour-long ride to Farmingdale, Fletch played poker with Bill Dieckmann, Roy Filby, and Tony Rice. He won twenty-seven dollars. In the corridor of the Farmingdale hotel, the doors to an elevator were open. Hanrahan was in the elevator. He either smiled or grimaced at Fletch.

In this particular instance, so obviously stupid—” “First, she’s convinced she can get away with anything. Whatever happens, it’s someone else’s fault. Second: vanity. Wouldn’t you love to appear among your old cronies, your peers, and play tennis with them as the wife of a presidential candidate?” “The way I play tennis—” “Listen—” “Wait a minute. Wasn’t she also raising money for the

Maybe I just do that to authority. Any authority. Maybe I just get near authority and unconsciously start planting bombs. Your dad is one authority I like. I don’t want to destroy him.” “Oedipus. Is that it?” “Maybe. I’m a born-and-bred wise guy. I’ve never done well with

Have to take your chances.” “Where’s Public Auditorium?” “Up eight blocks.” The young man waved north. “Over three blocks.” He waved east. “You need a taxi.” “Thanks.” Fletch hit the revolving door so hard it spun him into the street.
