Fleeting Chance: An Enescu Fleet Mystery

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

Fleet is back, this time for some cards, cruising and criminal investigation. In his fourth adventure, he encounters treachery on and off the high seas. Along the way, he raises the stakes with a little hidden treasure, and goes all in on a mystery that will plumb the depths of his past. Does the best in the game have what it takes—or could he end up a sunken Fleet?
Reviews
Young’s fourth Enescu Fleet mystery (after 2013’s Fleeting Note) is a nice blend of humor and detection, with a clever resolution that may surprise even veteran whodunit readers. “Sort of a modern, bearded Sherlock Holmes with a pronounced Hemingway complex,” Fleet and his loyal sidekick, John Hathaway—who’s about to marry his longtime love interest, Lesley Darlington—are among the passengers on The Stacked Deck, a yacht off the coast of Astorbay, Canada. A late-night poker game turns unexpectedly eventful when the play is interrupted by a cry of "man overboard." Fleet quickly retrieves the fallen passenger, math professor Arnold Bernard, from the cold waters, but when John returns to the parlor to resume the game, he finds that another player, Leslie MacDonald, has been stabbed to death. MacDonald’s death is not the end of the violence, and a disappearance ups the ante for John significantly. Readers who prefer murder puzzles with a light touch will be satisfied. (BookLife)
Kirkus Reviews

“A series that seemingly couldn’t get any better goes a little deeper; with Young at the helm, readers can’t lose.”

Literary R&R

“This is not your typical mystery series.  This is a series of stories about eccentric, likable characters that happens to have a mystery contained inside.”

Readers' Favorite

“[A] sly and classy homage to Agatha Christie, and Sherban Young pulls it off brilliantly.”
