After two years of his brother's death, Michael is still struggling to come to terms over his brother's death. It is hard for him to grasp the fact that he communicates with his brother through a computer. While Michael continues to grow his brother's business and bring his brother's murderer to justice, he finds himself being in danger. With Alex receiving a computer upgrade, he is able to help Michael navigate murky waters.
This is the third book in the series and it could be read as a standalone. However, for character and story development I would recommend reading all three novels. After reading the entire series, I felt like the story was stilted and dragged on. Most of the plots were a bit far fetch and to be honest, I lost interest in the novel. For example, Michael claims his wife, Samantha is the love of his life. Yet, he barely spends time with her and cheats on her. He even continuously cares about a woman who has tried to murder his daughter, his wife, and even himself. I felt like after reading the other two books, the story felt repetitive and boring. I enjoyed the first two books and was really looking forward to reading this novel.

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.
