Welcome to my stop on the Death in the Cloud blog tour sponsored by Suzy Approved Book Tours! Thank you to Suzy for the invitation!
About the Book:
A commercial airliner departing Moscow is missing over France. Two days later, with world tensions at an all-time high, that same plane is headed for the White House.
Soon after, following a mysterious breach of the launch codes, US nuclear missiles aimed at Russia are poised for attack. A reciprocal attack is readied by Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin. The world is on the edge of a nuclear apocalypse.
Since his murder in a Queens restaurant, Alex Nicholas has been living a virtual life in cyberspace. Suddenly he finds himself on the big screen in the White House’s underground bunker, facing the President of the United States. He may be the only one who can save the world from mutual mass destruction. But to do so, he will have to allow himself to be “deleted” – this time permanently.
This latest addition to the Michael & Alex Nicholas series – which also includes Death Never Sleeps, Death Logs In, and Death Logs Out – features all the mystery, artificial intelligence, humor, food, and travel that fans have come to expect, but with even more twists and turns. Buckle up!
Death in the Cloud is a unique read and so entertaining! It’s a bit of a departure for me genre-wise, and I enjoyed the change of pace.
The story is action-packed, and I think it would make a fun movie or TV series. I didn’t realize this was the fourth book in a series; however, it completely stands on its own.
If you enjoy artificial intelligence, humor, food references, with mystery and action, definitely check out Death in the Cloud!
I received a gifted copy. All opinions are my own.
About the Author:
E. J. Simon was born in New York City and grew up in Queens. His parents were both from Greece, his father became a successful furrier on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue in the 1950’s when mink coats were fashionable.
His mother grew up in Durham, NC and his annual travels back to Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, NC to visit his mother’s family led to his love of the South.
As a young boy, his passions were reading, history and baseball, not necessarily in that order.
He graduated with a BA in Journalism (before switching majors from History to English to Political Science and maybe others) from the University of South Carolina. He remembers spending more time reading what he wanted, working in a local restaurant and playing baseball more than he can recall being in class. He later earned an MA in Communications from Fairfield University where the Jesuits were stricter about attendance. He has also attended the University of North Carolina and the Graduate School of the New School for Social Research in New York.
After many years in corporate leadership positions, including CEO roles in two major companies, he followed his passion and began to write. His first novel, Death Never Sleeps
was a Kindle best-seller. He has continued to author books in the series, now including Death Logs In and, to be released in July by Endeavour Media (UK), Death Logs Out. He is completing the fourth novel in the series, Death in the Cloud.
EJ is currently enjoying his role as Vice President of Business Development for Coldwell Banker, Howard Perry & Walston in Raleigh
After spending most of his life in New York City and Westport, Connecticut, Simon and his wife, Andrea, have moved to Cary, North Carolina and are enjoying southern living, the theatre, music, cooking, dining out and building their photography collection. He still is an avid New York Yankees fan but also now follows the Durham Bulls.
