Officials counted 2753 dead at the World Trade Center on 9/11. They're wrong. Ted, counted as dead, wasn't there. He missed his appointment that morning to shack-up with his girlfriend du jour. When he calls his business partner Sal to let him know he’s still alive, Sal reminds him of their five million dollar partners insurance and suggests he “stay dead” and “What do we do with the girl?”

Praise for Death Postponed

In this post 9/11 tale of scammers and survivors, the author's deep affection for his flawed characters draws us in and holds us there, wondering: How will this all turn out?  -Kate Flora, award winning author of the Joe Burgess series.

 In Death Postponed, Gustaf Berger weaves a tangled web that ensnares unwary readers and holds them until the very last page.  -Barbara Ross, author of the Maine Clambake Mysteries.

 Delivering twists within twists, this time-hopping caper kept me guessing.  -Ray Daniel, Derringer winner and author of Child Not Found.

A taut, fast-paced ride through the seamy side of life. Berger’s unforgettable cast of characters teem with grit and guile. A compulsively readable tale.  -Arlene Kay, author of Swan Songs.

Death Postponed stars almost likeable con men, a sweet but dangerous villain, and a passionate crusader for justice in an intriguing tale of greed, betrayal, and love.  -Kevin Symmons, author of Chrysalis.    

In this riveting thriller, Mr. Berger spins an engaging and twisty tale of a 9/11 scam with characters I won’t soon forget. It had me spinning until the surprising end.  -Ray Anderson, author of the Karl "Awol" Bergman hiking-thriller series
