Overview

The greatest treasures from the ancient world have been brought together in one place-a magnificent floating exhibition aboard a luxury cruise liner-and the wealthy, powerful and famous have come to bask in the glow of ancient riches. Unfortunately, someone is about to crash the party in a big way. When Nick Kismet foils an attempted pirate takeover of the cruise ship and rescues the lovely Elisabeth Neuell-a former Hollywood starlet living the fairy-tale dream of royalty-little does he suspect that he has been drawn into a dangerous game controlled by diabolical occult scholar Dr. John Leeds...a game where the prize is an ancient source of mystical power, and where the stakes are the fate of the world. Joined by Al Higgins-the former Gurkha who once followed him into Hell-and Higgins' daughter Annie Crane, Kismet begins a desperate race to find the source of immortality and keep it from falling into the wrong hands. Surviving Leeds' web of intrigue and betrayal will put Kismet's courage and luck to the ultimate test. But fortune favors the bold!

Fortune Favors is the third in the Nick Kismet series by Sean Ellis. Nick works for the United Nations to protect cultural artifacts. On this trip he is sent to a floating museum to protect artifacts that were collected by a world leader that are now up for auction. His job, to make sure any stolen artifacts that turn up there get returned to their rightful owners. The action starts just after Nick arrives and doesn’t stop. The ship is immediately boarded by pirates. Nick sneaks aboard their boat and finds himself rescuing a celebrity. When he returns to the ship he starts to investigate what the pirates were after. In the course of his investigations he runs into an unusual man, Dr. John Leeds, who is looking for…the Fountain of Youth. He believes there are clues on one of the artifacts being auctioned off. It appears Nick’s old nemesis, Prometheus, is also involved in some way. From this point forward it’s Nick against Leeds trying to get to the supposed fountain before the other. Leeds is excellent at convincing people to help him. With lots of adventure, mythos about the fountain, and action this book will keep you reading and entertained. I recommend it for adult readers.
