Description

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE?
Readers' Favorite Book Awards silver medal winner.

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. But he's not going to take his death lying down. He'll win back his life - and his wife - if it's the last thing he does.

But destiny has other plans for him: the secret to peace in the Middle East and the long-awaited Messiah.

Meanwhile, other changes are afoot in the Holy Land. A reluctant prophet prepares to deliver a message of redemption - and the end of life as we know it - when a freak accident changes the course of history.

A "MUST-READ" END TIMES ADVENTURE.

If you enjoy mystery and humor, engaging characters and non-stop surprises, then you will love this "heartwarming" and "highly original" tale of hope and second chances that will make you laugh and cry as the pages fly by.

NOTE: All three novels in the series are now available:

Review quote

"An engaging page-turner. Highly recommended." - Association of Jewish Libraries

"...a unique intriguing, and entertaining story. I really like the way Dan Sofer describes his flawed characters who also seem complex and complicated... the individuals, family, community, Jewish traditions, friends and hope. I also enjoyed the satire of their adventures. I would highly recommend this entertaining book and hope to read more in this series." - Linda's Book Obsession

"Excuse my staggering there just now. I admit I'm a bit wobbly and out of whack after reading Dan Sofer's book. Truly, I don't recall ever having a reading experience like this one, which opens with a dead guy finding himself naked on the Mount of Olives... Will he be able to get his life back? Every hour of every day brings turns and twists. It's hard to put the book down in anticipation of what happens next to Moshe Karlin and his unexpected 'soulmates'... The results are fascinating. If you aren't already running to get a copy of this extraordinary reading experience, then I have done you an injustice. But I'm still not giving the plot away. No more spoilers. You've got to read it to see for yourself." - ESRA Magazine

"Grabbing you from the very first page, An Unexpected Afterlife takes you in unexpected directions, combining a page-turning mystery with a discussion of one of the fundamental beliefs of Judaism." - Ellis Shuman, author of Valley of Thracians

"Dan Sofer's book is an unexpected mind-opener...The book also offers more than a little teaching, a surprising amount of wit, and a good-sized cast of strong supporting characters. This highly original novel is likely to be controversial in the best of ways: provoking thought and discussion." - The Federation Star
