Continuing with the work of E.J. Simon, I got pulled into the third novel in the series, which moves into some meatier material and a number of great twists to add plot depth. Building off the cliffhangers from the second novel, Simon forges ahead and shows that he’s able to pen a great thriller that strings the reader along. Recommended for those who liked the first two novels, which are important to understand the nuances found herein.

Michael Nicholas has surely taken on more than he can chew

I have been reading this book off and on for a week, and can not get interested in the story. I am making myself read it, so I am not going to finish, not now anyway. I thank the author and publisher for the opportunity to read it.

So, psycho Sindy Steele is back and she’s kidnapped Michael’s daughter, Sofia. The man called upon to rescue her has his own agenda. And Monsignor Kurt Schlegelberger senses the time has come to unleash the Free Forces Party, a group of Neo-Nazi’s bent on world domination. Can Michael and AI-Alex save the day?

Michael is a good man. A hiccup here or there, but basically a good man. But what of Alex. Now an artificial intelligence in a special computer, he can help in ways no human can. But, does

I instantly was hooked when I read the first book. I am happy to report that the books do get better and better. By this third book I had really established a relationship with the characters. There is a brief synopsis at the beginning of this book, so that if you are just discovering this series for the first time, you have an idea of what this series is about. However, I really recommend that you start with the first book, Death Never Sleeps. If you read the books in order, you will really app ...more

     Technology permeates our society and dictates how we socialize, work, and experience life.

     What if we were able to harness technology so that death logs out?

     Michael Nichols has talked to his brother, Alex, every day for two years since he was murdered. This AI-Alex has all of Alex’s memories, mannerisms, and persona that Michael recognizes as his brother. But is this being with a conscious the real Alex? Or is it just a sophisticated program running on a machine?

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I can not exactly say that I loved this book, but I did not dislike it either. I would recommend it to someone who really likes thrillers combine with technology and conspiracy. One thing that I absolutely loved is E.J. Simon writing style, he manages to capture your attention from page one til the last one.
I will be reading more books by E.J. Simons.

Death Logs Out Continues a Series--but, Works as a Stand Alone Novel Too. I received a paperback copy of Death Logs Out--and had access to digital versions of the two earlier novels in the series. While I think I would have had a stronger attachment to the characters and maybe would have found them more believable had I read the other books in the series--I am not sure of that. The author's writing style keeps readers learning details on a need-to-know basis. The characters interact quickly and ...more

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I read the first two books in this series, Death Never Sleeps and Death Logs In, and I was looking forward to reading Death Logs Out. It didn't disappoint; in fact, this is the best book in the series so far.x

With Alex receiving a computer upgrade, he is able to help Michael navigate murky waters.

Death Logs Out is the third book in the Michael Nicholas series, however it can easily stand alone. This technological thriller explores religion, afterlife, artificial intelligence, and the Nazi control. It is action-packed from beginning to end! The possibilities of AI and government control are very real, which made the suspense all the more alarming.

The villains in this story are high ranking members of the Vatican. With wide publicity of the AI advancements, religion and the value of morali
Coralee Hicks
Simon writes such clever satires. Part of the fun is guessing who his villains are based on. From the beginning, religion was a dark theme that ran through the series. The corruption of priests, both in the Greek Orthodoxy and in the Roman Church added gravitas along with the humor. Now in the Vatican there is a Cardinal Schlegelberger. As usual, Simon's names also have hidden meanings. Schlegelberger's name contains the root word flail -to beat or flog.

The story of Michael and Alex Nichols continues. I thought the first book was okay, the second one was better and this one was back to being okay. The things that AI can do is very interesting but the rest of the book was just people going after Michael like the other two books have been about. Somehow in this book it focuses on the Vatican and Nazi's which I think was a little much. I think I found it hard to relate to these characters because they were flying off to Europe every other day and ...more

Just as I finished this book I realized I had read the series out of order and that what I thought were books of different perspective were actually pieces of a puzzle put together in order. I was the one out of order. Still, it was fun reading them the way I did also.

This one starts with Michaels daughter being kidnapped. Michael and Samantha really are jet-setters, traveling to Europe at a moments notice.

That a person needs a scorecard to tell the players actually is a good idea for this serie

Death Logs Out is the third book in the Michael Nicholas book series and cannot be read has a standalone. This series gets better with each book as the characters evolve and the story line gets better. The story grows darker and more intense as new characters are introduced. The themes continue to grow in depth and become more complex with each page you read. There were several other things that I loved about this book that are sure to surprise you but I will leave that for you to discover. A pe ...more

If you have not read my reviews of the first two books of the series I recommend you check them out first as this review may contain spoilers for the first two books in the series. Death Logs Out by E.J. Simon was an exciting ending to an exciting series that had me feeling sad at the ending of just a great series of books. After reading all three books this one turned out to be my favorite because of its fast pace nature and the way in which Alex and Michael interacted in the face of such a maj ...more

I had a hard time getting into this book. The first two books in the series held my interest much more. I like the concept of the technology in this story but I almost felt like the author was trying a little too hard to stretch the story into a trilogy, but it is a good book.
