Iran leads five Arab armies in a brutal victory over Israel which ceases to exist. Within hours its leaders are rounded up and murdered, the IDF is routed, and the country’s six million Jews concentrated in Tel Aviv which becomes a starving ghetto. While the US and the West sit by, the Moslem armies — taking a page from the Nazi playbook — prepare to kill off the entire population. On the eve of genocide, Ghetto Tel Aviv makes one last attempt to save itself, as an Israeli businessman, a gangster, and a cross-dressing fighter pilot put together a daring plan to counterattack. Will it succeed? The Siege of Tel Aviv is as bizarrely funny as it is fast-paced. In the words of Stephen King: “An irrepressible sense of humor runs through it. It’s not satire I’m talking about — it’s stuff like the cross-dressing pilot (my favorite character) and any number of deliciously absurd situations (the pink jets). It’s the inevitable result of an eye that sees the funny side even in horror. So few writers have that. This novel will cause talk and controversy. Most of all it will be read.”
