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!


This book is such a wild ride! And also reminds me why I’m not a huge fan of A.I., but that’s a whole other psychological development that I don’t need to get into. But if you like thrillers, twists and turns, and enemies hidden around every corner then this is the book for you! It really surprised me with how invested in the story I became and it’s one of those books that will be on your mind in the background until you get the chance to continue reading it.

I think what really made me enjoy this story the most was the characters. I always say I’m a world-building type of reader but when there are some well written characters I can’t help but to fall for the book. And what I love the most are believable characters, and our mcs definitely fit into that category! But even outside of the characters this book contains a really crazy, and oddly realistic, story in it! And when I say there are twists and turns I mean it, so buckle up when you dive into this one!

I’ve been trying to expand what I read this year and this is one of those books that my previously (*cough* still *cough*) fantasy obsessed brain would probably skip over. But I’m so glad I gave this book a chance because it’s not only a good reprieve from fantasy, it’s just a really entertaining book!
