Editorial Reviews


"In Simon's thriller, a corporate CEO takes over a gambling and loan-sharking operation from his murdered brother. His widow needs Michael's expertise to help find a few million dollars that Alex has stashed while a thug named Sharkey, demands his payment boasting about how he could kill Michael. However, Michael finds answers by using technology that Alex left behind: an artificial intelligence, patterned after his brother's image and personality. The story takes nerve-wracking turns . . . A fine technological thriller that only gets better as it goes along. "

From the Back Cover

"A story of murder, betrayal and love with twists and turns that as a professional detective even I didn't expect . . . A Must Read! E.J. Simon is the real deal." - VITO COLUCCI, JR. author of the true crime book, Rogue Town, A City Under the Stranglehold of Organized Crime 
"This reader 
white-knuckled her way from start to finish. Simon is a master at the game of suspense. A page-turner at its best that left me begging for more." - JUDITH MARKS-WHITE, author of Seducing Harry and Bachelor Degree 
"DEATH NEVER SLEEPS . . . will make you ponder the 
technology suturing our lives. You will also question where life ends, and where death begins." - MARK RUBINSTEIN, author of Mad Dog House and Love Gone Mad 

The problem with Alex Nicholas is that he won't stay dead. 

Alex Nicholas was the consummate Queens bookie: fast cars and even faster women, and friends in all the wrong places. As an illegal sports betting and loan shark king in New York City, Alex was 
fearless-until the night his luck ran out and someone leveled the silver barrel of an automatic on him and pulled the trigger. 
Michael Nicholas was everything his brother Alex was not: a powerful, married straight-arrow corporate CEO living the American Dream. Their 
two worlds collide when Michael discovers his brother's secret laptop. 
As Michael crosses the globe to find his brother's murder, can he avoid his brother's fate? And can the information contained in the laptop help Alex reach out to help Michael- 
from beyond the grave?
