This week I am spotlighting Death Never Sleeps by E. J. Simon. This was an unsolicited review book that sounded good. Here is the description of this July 19 release:
DO THE DEAD HAVE SMARTPHONES?Beginning:
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.
Alex Nichols had often wondered what the last moments of his life would feel like.Friday 56:
As Michael groped in the sudden darkness to find his cell, the stranger's voice let out a piercing, horrific laugh. It reverberated through the room.
