Is Alex Nicholas really dead?
Two years since the brutal shooting of Alex Nicholas, a gambling underworld boss in Queens, NYC. But his brother, Michael, a respected CEO, struggles with a secret: his murdered brother has been communicating with him via his laptop using AI. This AI-Alex can foresee dangers in Michael’s path, and appears to be trying to help him – even controlling machinery and electronics via WiFi. Meanwhile, trouble is stirring in the historic capital cities of Rome, Berlin and Paris. Inside the Vatican, Monsignor Kurt Schlegelberger has designs to build his power and prepare for the sudden ascension of the Free Forces Party, a throw-back to the Nazis.
Schlegelberger will stop at nothing, but first he must deal with a new threat: someone appears to know the true story behind a series of murders in the US, committed by clergy to cover their tracks of child abuse within the Church. Alex’s re-appearance puts Schlegelberger’s plans in jeopardy. Dead or alive, the way to finish off Alex for good can only be to get to his close family, namely his brother Michael…
This fast-paced third instalment of E.J. Simon’s Death series will keep readers guessing to the very end.

Death Logs Out is the third installment from E J Simon’s Michael Nicholas series. The reader continues to follow Michael Nicholas world and newly found life of danger and intrigue. It has now been two years since his brother, Alex Nicholas, was murdered. Alex continues to contact Michael by virtual means.
Death Logs Out involves many settings throughout the world including the United States, but Rome, Italy, Paris, France, Berlin, Germany and The Vatican. This book has much more suspense and mystery than the first two in Michael Nicholas series. There is corruption, Nazis, and the Pope entwined the story. Which made it a roller coasting riding thriller. I think this one is probably my favorite of the series to date.
The mystery of Alex Nicholas’s murder and his ability to still contact Michael continues to intrigue. It seems as though Alex did not make as many appearances in this book like he did in the others. However, there was more questions whether or not he was actually dead. I liked that suspense trying and hoping this mystery would be solved.
Death Logs Out gets a four and a half stars from me. I hope this is not the end of the Michael Nicholas series. I feel as though this series could go on and on for many more books. I would definitely be interested in continuing on. I enjoy getting to know Michael, Alex and the others that they have been involved with over the last three books.
Recommended for those who enjoy creepy, unpredictable thrillers. I have already told my neighbor about it and she plans to pick up a copy for herself.
I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
