Infusing elements of dark reality into this richly detailed, comical series, Mcdonald's first volume, Flynn, delves deeper into the curious character first introduced in the bestselling Fletch seriesFrancis Xavier Flynn.

Early one morning as Boston's only investigator is returning home from solving another peculiar case, he has the displeasure of witnessing a spectacularly horrible show outside his front door: a massive aircraft, carrying over one hundred souls, exploding in midair over the harbor. Almost immediately, the Human Surplus League takes credit for the heinous act of terrorism. But "Reluctant Flynn" isn't so easily convinced, unlike his partner and governmental counterparts.

Now finding himself at the whim of the tedious and ill-mannered FBI agents as they follow bunk leads and question all the wrong suspects, he decides to do his own digging, employing family and encountering new friends and old acquaintances along the way. As the truth begins to trickle forth, Flynn finds himself staring down a much bigger—and much deadlier—problem.

This is certainly no great work of literature, but it is very enjoyable "brain candy" when you need to relax and vegetate.

Having greatly enjoyed "Confess, Fletch" many times over (my favorite book!) I eagerly anticipated reading about Flynn without competition from Irwin Maurice Fletcher. Here, we see that while he is beloved by his family and his dwarfen covert spy network boss, he is obeyed and detested at the same time by his police lackey Grover (assumed to be assigned to Flynn to keep Grover out of the department's hair), somewhat liked and tolerated by the police captain and commissioner (if it weren't for Flynn's impressive arrest record, this would probably not be so), and despised by the Federal men who blindly go by the book to find the people who blew up an airliner. The book does drag at times. McDonald's gift for witty dialogue is sometimes interrupted by lengthy descriptive paragraphs. However, this is an enjoyable read that is funnier than other Flynn offerings that came later (The Buck Passes Flynn was actually a bit disturbing at times)
