Fletch, investigative reporter extraordinaire, can't be bothered with deadlines or expense-account budgets when it comes to getting his story.
Working undercover at the beach to dig up a drug-trafficking scheme for his next blockbuster piece, Fletch is invited into a much deeper narrative. Alan Stanwyk, CEO of Collins Aviation and all-around family man, mistakes the reporter for a strung-out vagabond and asks him for a favor: kill him and escape to Brazil with $50,000. Intrigued, Fletch can't help but dig into this suspicious deal he's being offered.
Dodging the shady beach police as his case begins to break open, and with his temperamental editor Clara pushing for his article, he soon discovers that Stanwyk has a lot to hide and this plan is anything but what it seems.

"Narrator Dan John Miller dives into the role of Fletch with gusto. Miller's tone reflects the ace reporter's approach to his undercover disguise as a beach bum while working to ferret out drug sources for a big story. When his beach persona is solicited to carry out a hit job, Fletch accepts the gig, which leads him from his stoned California comrades to luncheons with millionaires at a tennis club and long-distance phone chats with a rural hardware store owner. The latter is one of Miller's best characters; others are fairly tepid, but his social distinctions are nicely done. Miller revels in the sardonic nature of Mcdonald's dark 1970s hero who is struggling with the demands of a cranky editor, newsroom deadlines, addicts, crooks, and cops.
