Thomas Edison and The Lazarus Vessel is an action-packed fantasy adventure by David Church. Thomas Edison is dead. But before he died, he invented something that could resurrect the dead. And now, nefarious men want to grab Edison's revolutionary formula for their own sinister schemes. John Dawkins is still grieving the loss of the love of his life, Emily Auburn, when he receives a metaphysical message asking him to find George Gershwin. With the comedian Groucho Marx in tow, John sets off on a dangerous quest that will have him reunite with the resurrected versions of both Edison and Emily. Soon, the little group finds itself embroiled in a seditious conspiracy to end American democracy, backed by a man who would become one of history's most hated figures. Can John and his friends stop the Nazis from taking over?
Thomas Edison and The Lazarus Vessel is, at times, a bizarre but thoroughly entertaining rollercoaster of a ride. David Church puts the reader in the midst of the action from the get-go, and from the first page onward, you find yourself transported to 1930s America on an action-packed journey where you have no idea where you'll end up. The result is pure unadulterated fun. With colorful and vibrant characters and a fast-paced plot, there's not a single dull moment in the entire book. I especially enjoyed the almost cartoonish depiction of Hitler and his underlings. John and his relationship with Emily were another one of the highlights for me. Highly recommended.
