Death Never Sleeps by E.J. Simon

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.

This book had it all; mystery, suspense and best of all, incredulity. The story itself was simple; brother takes over dead brother’s business. But how we get to the end is an interesting ride. Each chapter was a mini cliff hanger. But the answer was not immediately answered in the next chapter(s).

 So you had to keep reading just to find out what happened in the prior chapters. This is the first time I had read or heard of the author’s concept of life after death. It definitely opens the door to some very interesting possibilities. I look forward to Simon’s next book. Highly recommend!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
