‘FLEETING GLANCE’ by SHERBAN YOUNG

My teaser lines are taken from the 55% page mark of my Kindle copy.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

The rest of the day was something of a blur. I guess anytime you arise five hours early, smack dab in the middle of a living landscape as painted by one of our leading artistic visionaries, you’re wont to feel a shade on the wonky side. I know I did.

As to the murder of Tony Rudd, it was discussed, analyzed and discussed some more, and the upshot was our blackmailer had me and Hutton by the short hairs.

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a kindle download of ‘Fleeting Glance’ was gifted to me free of charge, by its author Sherban Young.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Looking at the cover and title, I wouldn’t say this was my kind of book, but then I gather this is actually mystery fiction… which would definitely make it my kind of book.

    I’m looking forward to your review of this one.

    • Hi Nikki,

      ‘Fleeting Glance’ and its predecessor, ‘Fleeting Memory’ (my review here) …

      https://www.fiction-books.biz/reviews/my-thoughts-about-fleeting-memory-by-sherban-young/

      … are indeed mysteries, however they are mysteries with a difference and classified under the genre of ‘Mystery Caper’.

      These mysteries are definitely given the light-hearted, slightly tongue-in-cheek treatment, full of cliches, innuendo and light banter … all very P.G. Wodehouse in style, but brought bang up to date by Sherban Young.

      Whilst not a genre that I could read on a regular basis, the occasional sojourn into the world of detective ‘Enescu Fleet’, always leaves me smiling.

      I am not done reading this book yet and have no idea what the outcome is going to be … it’s anyone’s guess!!

      Thanks for stopping by, I hope that your first week back at work isn’t too hard going!

    • Hi Valentina,

      I wonder, did you post a review about ‘Fleeting Glance’ on any of the sites, as I would be interested in reading your thoughts about it?

      I was checking Sherban’s author site last night for some information and I happened to notice that the third book in the ‘Enescu Fleet’ series is already out … ‘Fleeting Note’ seems to revolve around a bad case of mistaken identity … more mishaps and mayhem are sure to ensue!

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I appreciate your comments.

    • Hi Naida,

      There are some quite fun scenes in this section of the story, where our intrepid heroes do in fact discover themselves ‘living inside a painting’ ….

      I can imagine that this could be quite an experience and might be good to try! I just need to work out exactly what kind of painting I would like to wake up in …. any ideas?

      Thanks for stopping by, it is good to catch up with you and I hope that you are well.

    • Hi Sandra,

      You can just go along for the ride with this one and have a fun time doing so … However if you really want to know what’s going on and ‘who did what to who and why’, then you’d better pay good attention, or you will get lost pretty quickly.

      The profusion of disparate, hugely eccentric charcaters entering and leaving the frame for an amlost endless array of crimes, is amazing. Add to the mix, two confused, young investigators, who are way out of their depth and some pretty dodgy English accents …

      There is surely going to be one heap of trouble for the wise head and shoulders of semi-retired detective Enescu Fleet to assimilate and make sense of, although right now, he seems to be keeping a very low profile!!

      If you want a fun read to ring the changes to your reading routine, then this is surely it!

      Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.

  • “smack dab in the middle of a living landscape as painted by one of our leading artistic visionaries”

    That sounds promising. Maybe I’ll look into this book 🙂

    I’m reading now a nonfiction book on one of the most famous research participants in neuroscience/psych history – H.M. (Henry Molaison) – a man who, due to botched surgery, lost his ability to form new memories; out of his tragedy, neuroscientists have been able to get a much better understanding of how memory works in the brain.

    • Hi Hila,

      ‘Fleeting Glance’ is an excellent ‘mystery caper’ and knowing which aspects of it to take seriously as clues to the real crime and suspects, is at times quite a challenge. When our hapless detectives found themselves staying in rooms decorated and furnished as scenes from well known paintings, the notion was quite intriguing and now that the true crime is slowly being revealed, I am starting to see the clever way in which the connection is being made.

      I checked out Henry Molaison and I am completely intrigued by what I read, although I am not sure that I could face a whole book about the subject. My husband always says that I tend to live my life with ‘soundbite’ information and I can well see how that might annoy him.

      We watched a very interesting (and short!) television documentary the other evening, which focused on three teenage children with short term memory loss, which is irreversible and incurable … it was heartbreaking and uplifting at one and the same time.

      Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits and comments.
