Revenge of the Elders of Zion by Dan Sofer is one of the tallest tales you will ever read. The Elders of Zion are back. You must have heard of the most infamous secret society; David Zelig has, and he desperately wants to be a part of them. There’s a problem with this – the society doesn’t and never has existed. What’s a man to do? A young Jewish man, David lost his inheritance when an anti-Semite swindled him out of it. Desperate for revenge, he and two friends create their own secret society. It doesn’t take long before the three friends are caught up in espionage and unbelievable conspiracies, crossing paths with all kinds of government agencies and other so-called secret societies. Time is running out for David and his friends and he may have to face up to an impossible truth – has David managed to trigger one the worst anti-Semitic attacks in American history? And do the Elders of Zion exist or not?

Revenge of the Elders of Zion by Dan Sofer is an entertaining story. It may come across to some people as filled with hatred, but it must be remembered it is a tall tale and it is a dark comedy. It was very well-written and if dark humor is your thing you will find it amusing, in fact downright funny in places. The plot is unique and full of twists and turns that will lead you down numerous rabbit holes and out the other side into a weird and wonderful world, filled with secret societies and conspiracy theories. Don’t blink or you will lose track of what is going on! It is humorous but it is intense at the same time, with some well-rounded characters and plenty of action. If you are a fan of dark humor, you will thoroughly enjoy this; it is a way of looking at the world without taking it too seriously and we all need a bit of humor in our lives right now.
