Publisher's Summary

In Not So Dead, our technologist hero and his quirky team achieve immortality by digitizing their personalities. What could go wrong? Clever and ruthless terrorists want it at any cost. A high-stakes cat and mouse game ensues with apocalyptic danger at every turn.

Follow Sam Sunborn as he teams up with a real Einstein to give birth to an invention that could change the lives of everyone on the planet forever. Sam wants to help people through his invention, but lands up having to defend it and his family from the Leopard, a driven and demented terrorist, whose mission is to rein chaos and destruction on the Western World. Using the latest technology and a battle of wills and wits, Sunborn and the Leopard engage in an epic global clash. What disasters befall the innocent in the Leopard's wake? Can Michelle Hadar, a lowly grad student, and Rich Little, a talented Homeland Agent, possibly come to the rescue? Mysteries and surprises abound in this fast-paced thriller.

Charlie's 20 year background in tech, degree in philosophy and love of fast-paced thrillers are the brew that created Not So Dead. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Amy, and has two sons, too far away in California.

the characters all fully developed and detailed

Sam Sunborn is a quirky nerdy techno guy who, along with members of his team, comes up with digitizing personalities of people.  Why?  Well, when we lose a loved one – isn’t it better to have some form of them present than nothing at all?  And what could that hurt anyway?  It would provide thousands of children, parents, friends and more with an everlasting connection to the deceased.  Perfectly harmless and helpful … that is until terrorists become involved.

The Leopard is a terrorist; he’s always one step ahead of Sunborn and the team of US agents representing all the secret agencies.  Sam along with digitalized Frank Einstein and Rich Little of Homeland Security go toe to toe with this dangerous and demented terrorist, fighting to protect the US and their allies.  With help from an unlikely person, Sam and The Leopard come face to face with only one winning.

This was one of those solid thrillers with the characters all fully developed and detailed giving the listener the illusion that everything was transparent … however, the twists and turns in this book will leave you sitting there wondering what the heck just happened!  Then you’re like OMG … no freaking way ….

Charles Levin crafted a unique story that draws in the listeners completely.  Work and bedtime and other activities made stopping the book difficult for me … I wanted to keep listening.  Levin is a storyteller that plays his audience like a violin – he knows just the words to keep you interested and keep the book moving forward at its breakneck pace of action.   I see the potential for more and I hope he doesn’t disappoint.

The narrator, Daniel Greenberg, performed the book very well.  Each of his character voices was unique and specific.  The voice he had for The Leopard was perfect as was the rest but The Leopard’s stands out.  He got the “better than thou” attitude and self-appointed doomsayer perfect!

This is a good book for anyone interested in thrillers, espionage, and sci-fi.  There’s a little bit of everything in this book!
