Inhaltsangabe: A rogue and a rascal--the trumpet playing, lady-killing toast of Greendowns County, Tennessee--Skylar Whitfields talented lips have won him the affection of many a local belle. Now theyve won him a scholarship to a prestigious Northern music school--which is what brings young Skylar into the home of his snooty Boston Brahmin relatives, where he is decidedly not welcome. Perhaps their disdain has something to do with the disappearance of five million dollar-worth of family gembobs on the very night he arrives. Or his amorous effect on some of the Beantown females, whose explicit fantasies could have dire consequences for the visiting country cousin. And of course, theres the murder that Skylar seems involved in up to his Dixie neck. . .
Vom Verlag: 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.
