      Author: EJ Simon
      Genres: Thriller, Mystery, Death, Adventure,
      Series: Michael Nicholas #3
      Publisher: Endeavour Media
      Publish Date: 201-07-13 (303 Pages, Paperback)
      Disclaimer: I received a free Advance Reader Copy from the author/Publisher for an honest review. I also got it though IReadBookTours.
      Description: 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…

      Buy the Book:



      Do we ever really know what really happens after death? Did Alex really die or is he still alive somewhere? The author put us in to story as Michael is wondering about this as he find out that his brother Alex as somehow getting in touch with several of his ex-wives.

      Sofia is reached out by her uncle but doe not really know for sure. Then she is kidnapped? Will she survive or is this a mad woman going to get her revenge on Michael? Michael goes to his buddy a retired policeman. Whatever happens when they recruit a friend to save Sofia? There seem to be more going on that someone once Sindy Steel gone?

      What does the Vatican want? There seems to be more of terrifying going on? Who is the Free Force Party? Kurt seem to want more power then what he got. We got back to learn some history about the Nazi occupation. There are more action and twist as you turn the page.

      The author takes you for a ride of a lifetime. Learn a bit about the Vatican church. You also get to tour a bit of Paris. What will happen to Michael as he goes to hunt down the bad guys that murdered his to brothers. Alex is mentioned and talked to though out the book. What is AI? Is it real?

      What does John Goldstin want with Michael? I know that once you start reading this book you will not want to put it down. It action packed. I do wish to that parent are aware that his is book has a lot of deaths in it. I would suggest this to be for children of ages 16 + with Mature in it. Please know this is only what i suggest and the parents have the right to allow there children to read it if choose to or not.

      I thought this book acted like a lot of my real world that going on around me. Though not at lot but you might remember 9/11 and think of how real that might be if or what really happen to Malaysia plane that when down over the ocean. I know that fact or there but they may not be real in the story but sure feel that way when reading the book. Thank to the author I have enjoyed these books. I can not wait for more.

          In Memory Of - My Precious Loving Baby Boy Pumpkin

          Pumpkin
              My Precious Loving Baby Boy Pumpkin

          Patches and Pumpkin
          May 2006
          Me holding Patches
          and Pumpkin
          Pumpkin was my baby boy. Though he was a cat. I loved him and his brother Patches. I got them both together from a friend. I thank that friend for allowing me to take them both. We could not let one stay and the other not. So we keep them both.

          Oh how I am glad we did. This brother and Pumpkin were a team and fun to watch. As kittens one was independent and the other was gentle and loved to be cuddled. Can you guess which was which. We named them Patches and the other Pumpkin. There names came from one being Orange and white and the other black and white with Patches. So, That is how they become to named. They came to me in May of 2006.

          To Pumpkin, who this is to be about. I have memories of him. He was so sweet and loving. He sleep with me at night and he did up until month before he passed away. He was still wanted me to pet him and we wanted more when I went and found and pet him.

          Pumpkin
          Christmas 2014
          One other thing about Pumpkin is that he meow at me when he was hungry or when he was ready to go up to bed. It was funny but loving. He come find me and want me to go to bed and meow until either I took him up to bed or told him head on up and I be up.

          Another memory I have of him is wanting to be petted while I was reading a book. Even if I was in bed and reading he swat at me playfully to pet him. He did this to me every night at least except for when he was hurting and the last month of before he passed away.

          Pumpkin playing with Icicle


          I know my pumpkin also loved to play with birds. If a bird end up in the house or in the basement of the house, the bird was alive and he still be playing with it. He was really gentle but playful and funny to watch. He was even like this after losing a leg and before say a month before he passed.

          Me Holding Pumpkin
          December 2017
          He was loving and so sweet and will be missed. Those are the memories I will hold and remember and still do. I miss my baby boy Pumpkin and will love him. I understand why he was to go and wanted him not to suffer so when he passed on August 5, 2018. It was relief for me. I will miss him and love and still and will always will.


          He was 12 years and few months old. Rest in Peace my baby boy. He passed away around 3:30 am on August 5, 2018. His brother Patches is still around. Check out my In Memory of Pumpkin or This one
          Pumpkin and Icicle
          RIP Pumpkin
          Born: May 2006
