About the Author
Gregory Mcdonald (1937-2008) insisted that he was educated while earning his way through Harvard by creating and running an international yacht troubleshooting business. A former Boston Globe reporter, he won two Edgar Allan Poe Awards for his writing as well as numerous awards for humanitarian work.
"Formalism matters in the mystery novel. Breaking rules and flying in the face of convention can have its rewards, but most avid readers of crime will tell you that nothing satisfies like that tale that falls within the well-marked boundaries of its genre. Confess, Fletch, Gregory McDonald's second novel featuring the intrepid wiseass Irwin Maurice Fletcher, is a mystery that takes its cues from the golden age of detective fiction: it features a naked corpse in a locked room, a disparate list of morally challenged suspects, and even introduces an eccentric police detective, an enormous Irish cop with a penchant for chamomile tea and Bach. That he balances these elements within the framework of a Fletch novel shows how good McDonald, who died earlier this year, was when he on the top of his game. Among McDonald's books, Confess, Fletch is second only to its predecessor Fletch, and fans of traditional mysteries might easily find it to be the best."-- "Pop Matters"
