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.
I am always up for a good mystery/thriller and this definitely did not disappoint.
It was an up to date, more modern mystery that involved technology in quite an intriguing manner.
We start with a character Alex, who only has one fear – death.
I can totally relate to that topic, but what he does to calm that fear is beyond anything I could think of on my own and is definitely odd (and a little scary) in its own right.
The main character, Alex’s brother Michael, gets sucked into a life quite different from his own but finds he enjoys it (and I have to admit, it does sounds kind of fun!)
Everything about this book has you on edge from beginning to end.
I have to admit, one of the better real mysteries/suspense stories I have read.
