A commercial airliner departing Moscow is missing over France. Two days later, with world tensions at an all-time high, that same plane is headed for the White House.
Soon after, following a mysterious breach of the launch codes, US nuclear missiles aimed at Russia are poised for attack. A reciprocal attack is readied by Russia's president, Vladimir Putin. The world is on the edge of a nuclear apocalypse.
Since his murder in a Queens restaurant, Alex Nicholas has been living a virtual life in cyberspace. Suddenly he finds himself on the big screen in the White House's underground bunker, facing the President of the United States. He may be the only one who can save the world from mutual mass destruction. But to do so, he will have to allow himself to be "deleted" - this time permanently.
This latest addition to the Michael & Alex Nicholas series - which also includes Death Never Sleeps, Death Logs In, and Death Logs Out - features all the mystery, artificial intelligence, humor, food, and travel that fans have come to expect, but with even more twists and turns. Buckle up!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
My first Simon novel but will not be my last! This novel has a unique, fast paced, gripping plot line. The characters are chiseled with depth and detail and the story gripped me from the start. I was taken on a whirl wind of ups and downs, ins and outs as I followed the uniqueness of this political thriller. Think Artificial Intellegence meets White House Down with the instensity, the twists and turns and the jaw dropping moments. Definitely a book I will read again and again! I am looking forward to going back and reading the other books in this series, especially if they are as much of a rollercoaster ride as this one was. If you love suspense, twists, edge of your seat moments and characters that will make you a part of their lives, mixed in with some humor, then you’ll love this 4 star read! Well done, Simon! Well done!

About E.J. Simon

E.J. Simon was born in New York City and grew up in Queens. His parents were both from Greece, his father became a successful furrier on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue in the 1950’s when mink coats were fashionable. online essay editing

His mother grew up in Durham, North Carolina and his annual travels back to Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, North Carolina to visit his mother’s family led to his love of the South.

As a young boy, his passions were reading, history and baseball, not necessarily in that order.

He graduated with a BA in Journalism (before switching majors from History to English to Political Science and maybe others) from the University of South Carolina. He remembers spending more time reading what he wanted, working in a local restaurant and playing baseball more than he can recall being in class. He later earned an MA in Communications fun persuasive speech from Fairfield University where the Jesuits were stricter about attendance. He has also attended the University of North Carolina and the Graduate School of the New School for Social Research in New York.

After many years in corporate leadership positions, including CEO roles in two major companies, he followed his passion and began to write. His first novel, Death Never Sleeps, was a Kindle best-seller. He has continued to author books in the series, now including Death Logs In and, to be released in July by Endeavour Media (UK), Death Logs Out. He is completing the fourth novel in the series, Death in the Cloud.

E.J. is currently enjoying his role as Vice President of Business Development for Coldwell Banker, Howard Perry & Walston in Raleigh.

After spending most of his life in New York City and Westport, Connecticut, Simon and his wife, Andrea, have moved to Cary, North Carolina and are enjoying southern living, the theatre, music, cooking, dining out and building their photography collection. He still is an avid New York Yankees fan but also now follows the Durham Bulls.
