KIRKUS REVIEW

 Back for his first adventure since Fletch Too (1986), the irrepressible reporter/detective comes home with his latest squeeze, Carrie, to his Tennessee homestead to find four escaped convicts in residence--one of them identifying himself as Jack Fletch Faoni, Fletch's long-lost--well, unsuspected--son. It would be too easy to just turn these guys in, so Fletch gives Jack a loaded gun, plays along with him, and lands up to his neck in an Alabama camp of white- supremacist crazies. But wait! Is Jack really Fletch, Jr.? A few of Fletch's trademark phone calls reveal that no Jack Faoni has ever served time in the federal pen, and that Crystal Faoni's son is spending the summer in Greece.... More boisterous high jinks than mystery, like a class reunion of stand-up guys resting on their rÇsumÇs. Even so: welcome back, Fletch.
