In this installment of the popular Fletch series, Mcdonald brings to life the vibrant, provocative culture and indomitable spirit of Brazil. After escaping to South America on a questionable “arrangement,” Fletch has all but settled in to his new life of never-ending vacation, shacking up with the young and beautiful Laura Soares, enjoying the expansive Copacabana Beach, making new friends from all walks of life, and preparing for the most exciting time of the year in Rio de Janeiro: Carnival! But right before the festivities begin, an old woman off the street tells Fletch that he’s the reincarnation of her husband and implores him to solve the mystery of his death. Caught between the rhythmic chaos of Carnival and this past-life murder, Fletch starts to lose more than just sleep as he pokes around through favelas and sambas through nightclubs searching for answers.
