When a retired private investigator agrees to compete on an exciting new game show called Deadly Allusions, he doesn't realize just how deadly it can get. This is FLEETING MEMORY, the unforgettable first novel in the Enescu Fleet series.



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 …

From here, our hero is hurtled along a path of self-discovery. With the help of Enescu Fleet, retired PI, he will delve into an exciting new game show where trivia and murder compete for top billing. Along the way, he will attempt to figure out the dead man's clue—and quite possibly nab a murderer who is too smart for his own good.

FLEETING MEMORY is available in Hardback, Paperback & Kindle.
