Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Fleeting Memory, an An Enescu Fleet Mystery, is written by Sherban Young. The story opens when a young man wakes up in a cabin. He hears someone knocking at the door, and he sees a young woman looking confused. She has no idea who she is and, when the young man tries to introduce himself, he realizes that he also has no idea who he is. She gets alarmed and runs out into the night. The young man looks around the cabin, not sure of anything as the place is totally unfamiliar to him. Then a little dog appears in his cabin and proceeds to relieve herself on the carpet. As the young man wonders if she could possibly be his pet, a robust and rather imposing older gentleman enters the scene in search of Pixie, the Pomeranian, and he introduces himself as a retired private investigator, named Enescu Fleet. EF, as he prefers to be called, will help the young man, a prospect he views with some trepidation.   Sherban Young's Fleeting Memory is marvelous and great fun, and, yes, there's a challenging and enjoyable mystery as well. Enescu Fleet is larger-than-life, and he sweeps the reader into his entourage as easily as he does the amnesiac young man. Fleeting Memory is smart, funny, and easy to get caught up in. There are all the elements in the classic mystery novel: red herrings, missing bodies, and even a classic roundup of all the suspects. I enjoyed every minute I spent reading Fleeting Memory and have since become a die-hard Enescu Fleet fan. Fleeting Memory is highly recommended.

Listed as a humorous cozy mystery, it is simply that. Take the title of the book and the genre being a mystery, again I say it is simply that. Having forgotten his name and names of others, he begins to solve the mystery of the dead body. It took a little while for this style to grow on me and understand what was going on and to like it. I liked how Hathaway ventures along solving the crime, but really has help from Enescu Fleet. Laughter and adventure along the way, meeting many characters that are just as crazy and zany as Hathaway and Fleet. Being separated a short while, Hathaway thought he had things figured out, or at least who he was and why he was in the middle of a murder investigation, until he hooks up with Fleet again and wait...maybe he wasn’t remembering. Very different than any other book I have read recently, mystery or otherwise. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to others looking for something refreshing and new in a mystery, not a typical read. Thanks Mr. Young for some fun!

The answer lies with Keats… With these cryptic last words, the man sprawled out on the floor of the rustic cabin expires—murdered. What could he have meant? Why Keats? Which answer? (For that matter, what was the question?) All this and more passes through the mind of the young householder who discovers the body. If only he knew the guy’s name. Or anybody’s name. Including his own… My Review: As I started reading Fleeting Memory, I was unsure what to expect.   I am not a huge mystery fan and never figure out the clue in any of the books I read.   I still didn’t get any of the clues, but I did enjoy reading Sherban Young’s novel. While reading I found myself chuckling at many of the comments or situations the character found themselves in.  It almost felt like I was watching a play.  Seeing all the odd characters from the story come on and off the stage in the various acts. I would definitely consider this a light-hearted mystery.  The witty writing and humorous plot make this an easy and entertaining read.

There's nothing like a great mystery to keep you guessing and I enjoyed reading every moment. The main character is rudely awaken by a banging on his door where he meets a dishy blonde with mesmerizing green eyes who seems to have misplaced her identity and upon trying to introduce himself, he discovers he can't remember who he is either. Then there's the mystery of the dying man cabin mumbling that the answer lies with Keats who is there one minute and gone the next. Retired Private Detective Enescu Fleet sets out to help the main character recall his identity, find connection between him and the hot blonde he can't stop thinking about and discover the identity of the killer before they strike again. But can the main character really trust anyone with a killer on the loose? Quick witted writing and an amusing plot providing a humorous reading adventure you won't want to miss.

This is one funny book. It was hard to go a page without finding something to snicker about. It's a mystery, reminiscent of Agatha Christie, with amusing characters and an interesting storyline. The plot begins quickly, throwing the reader along with the protagonist into the fray without any type of warning. We are just as confused as he is, wondering what is going on as much as he does. The tone is light all the way through the novel, making it a refreshing read that is hard to put down. There are moments that will make you laugh out loud with the silliness of the situation, but you will keep turning the pages, wanting more. The mystery progresses, without even our notice, until the answers are revealed. The characters are unique, with many curious and unique things about them. The protagonist is hilarious in his blind following of Fleet, a detective he happens to meet in his confused wanderings. We root for him, but secretly hope something even nuttier happens to him. This is a great book for all mystery lovers, but really, it's a good choice for anyone who want a lighter read and a good laugh, all at the same time.
