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.
