YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE?
He lost everything. His wife. His job. His clothes. Oh, and his life.
When he wakes up, naked and alone, in the Mount of Olives Cemetery, Moshe Karlin finds that the afterlife is not what he had expected.
The doomsday prophecies of the Hebrew Bible are coming true, but why does everyone seem to want him dead?
He’ll have to work very hard to win back his old life… and his wife. Along the way, he’ll make some new friends and dangerous enemies, and discover that perhaps his first life wasn’t so perfect after all. But there’s more.
Just when he thought his life was over, Destiny has more in store for him than he could ever imagine: the shocking secret to peace in the Middle East and the end of History…
Wow. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book but the description sounded interesting so I thought I’d give it a try. I loved it. Once I started reading I couldn’t stop. A man wakes up in a cemetery and finds out that he died two years ago. Why is he back? What’s he going to do now? This book explores the Jewish religion, but at its core it’s a story about people. That’s what kept me reading. The pace was good and kept moving right alone, and the twists kept coming. I was satisfied with the ending but I can’t wait to read the next book. I want to find out more.

HE DEFEATED DEATH. WILL HE BEAT BUREAUCRACY?

THE JEWISH MESSIAH IS HERE. HE DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE…

In the midst of it all, one chronic latecomer is on everyone's mind—the Messiah!
This continues the story from book 1. All of the characters from the first book are back. The resurrected are dealing with the realities of having a second life. The Dry Bones Society is dealing with new resurrected. Moshe ends up getting involved in politics in order to stand up for the rights of the resurrected. Another one I couldn't put down. Can't wait to see where things go in the next book.

THE EXPLOSIVE FINALE TO AN AWARD-WINNING SERIES
|An exciting and satisfying ending to the Dry Bones Society trilogy. I'm going to be vague to avoid giving away any plot points. Jumping between several plot lines and characters, there was not a dull moment in this book. You definitely need to start from book one to get to know all of the characters and what is going on. This book is full of twists and moments that I had no idea how things were going to work out. Kept me guessing to the very end. A very satisfying conclusion. I highly recommend this trilogy.|
