Where does life end, and death begin?
Brothers, Alex and Michael, weren’t particularly close in terms of their careers in their later years. But when Alex is murdered, Michael finds it necessary to keep Alex’s business running, at least for the foreseeable future.
With very little knowledge about what Alex actually did for a living, little does he envisage the level of complication this entails. Working closely with his cousins, Fat and Skinny Lester, Michael starts to get a sense of what needs doing … in whatever way Alex would have dealt with things.
But, when Alex’s current wife, and his two ex-wives, surface and start to dish out demands, Michael finds himself going deeper and deeper into Alex’s personal space. All his ex-wives knew there was money left hidden … but only Alex knew of its exact location.
When Russell, an old friend of Michael’s, and Alex’s most trusted person, offers to help Michael find the money, Michael feels he can start closing up on Alex’s loose ends and move on with his own, increasingly complicated life.
Until … Russell is brutally murdered …
Someone else is after Alex’s money … and it’s not a friendly person.
But is Alex really dead? Or is he as dead as he has prepared himself to be?
Michael is beyond confused … is he imaging the conversations he’s having with Alex? But Alex was shot dead in his own restaurant, one filled with policemen. Surely, Alex is dead?
Whichever way Michael tries to rationalize things in his head, Alex’s support is beyond what he needs. Finding himself face to face with a crook, Sharkey, one who has no qualms about killing people, one Alex was in debt to, Michael takes on Alex’s advice … dead or not!
As the number of deaths rise, Michael and his wife, Samantha, are left on their toes. Would they ever feel safe again? Is anyone safe? And how far did Alex go with his new venture?

Death Never Sleeps is the first installment from the Michael Nicholas series by E J Simon. In the beginning, a reader is introduced to the rich and powerful bookie from Queens, New York, Alex Nicholas. He is involved in some illegal dealings that leads to his murder. He leaves behind a son, widow, two ex wives, numerous mistresses and a brother, Michael. Unlike his brother, Michael lives his life right with his beautiful wife, Samantha. Somehow, Michael reluctantly gets sucked into the mystery of who murdered Alex. As he starts to investigate what happened that led up to his brother's demise, he discovers a unique laptop belonging to Alex. When he logs into it, Alex appears onscreen. That is when the story gets quite wild and crazy that he would have never ever in his life predicted.
I have mixed feelings about Death Never Sleeps. It is definitely not my normal read. I am not that big of a sci fi fan. But yet the mystery and suspense had kept my attention and kept me intrigued. What in the world could possibly happen next? I just could not help but to keep turning the pages to see. I wanted more, but yet still have that feeling this book is completely weird. The ending left off with such a huge cliffhanger. It can not end like that! So, here I am scrambling to get my hands on the next installment of the series.
I keep back an forth of how I want to rate Death Never Sleeps. Between three and four stars. So, I am going with three and a half stars.
I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
