In the latest mystery from the creator of Fletch, sexy Skylar clears a broad path from Tennessee to Boston.
Skylar Whitfield, twenty-year-old southern hunk, can't help it if he oozes charm and testosterone. He's been doing it all his life in Greendowns County, Tennessee, natural-like. But when he goes to Boston to study the trumpet, those Yankees don't know how to take him. They all start dreaming and fantasizing and giving Skylar more attention than they're inclined to give anyone.
Skylar takes all the fuss in stride -- until some pretty valuable jewels disappear, and folks point the finger at him. Then, when an upper-crust thirteen-year-old girl turns up dead on a riverbank, a crime with heinous undertones, it's Skylar's turn to get serious. He acts quickly, apprehends the tony killer, and proves that beneath the laid back southern cool he's got smarts and mettle to boot.

In Fletch, Gregory Mcdonald created a signature character whose roguish charm and renegade sleuthing delighted a generation of readers. Over the past twenty years the Fletch books earned Mcdonald two Edgar Awards, spawned the popular motion pictures Fletch and Fletch Lives starring Chevy Chase, and established Mcdonald as a writer of humorous suspense. For the nineties, Gregory Mcdonald produced a welcome successor to Fletch in charismatic young Skylar Whitfield, first introduced in Skylar.
Now, with Skylar in Yankeeland, Mcdonald continues the exploits of the dashing charmer Publishers Weekly has called "a country-boy folk hero who mixes Robin Hood's populism with randy sexuality and backwoods smarts." This time, twenty-year-old Southern hunk Skylar Whitfield leaves his beloved Tennessee home to study the trumpet in Boston. His blue-blooded Yankee relatives give him a very cold shoulder, dismissing him as a naive rube and turning up their patrician noses at his fun-loving antics. That is, until precious gems disappear and Skylar captures their undivided attention -- as the prime suspect in the heist. A smart and sawy thriller, Skylar in Yankeeland will satisfy stalwart Fletch fans while also luring a young new audience.About the Author:
