Peter Leonard’s jaw-dropping VOICES OF THE DEAD introduced us to two mortal enemies: Holocaust survivor Harry Levin and Nazi death angel Ernst Hess. Now, their struggle reaches its dramatic conclusion in Back from the Dead. 

Bahamas, 1971. Ernst Hess, missing and presumed dead, regains consciousness to find himself stuck in a hospital bed on a strange ward in a foreign country. He must do what he needs to do to get his life back and to finish the job he has been doing for decades. 

Harry believes he has already stopped Hess. When he finds out that the war criminal has somehow survived, Harry must do the only thing he can do – kill Hess again – even if it means crossing continents and putting his life and the lives of those that matter to him on the line. 

Action-packed and darkly humorous, BACK FROM THE DEAD is the unforgettable conclusion to a story that launches Peter Leonard into the pantheon of great suspense novelists.


"Elmore Leonard’s son proves himself a chip off the old block – again…. Don’t pick the book up if you have any intention of putting it down before you’ve got to the end.” 
– The Guardian 

“Peter Leonard should be on your must-read list if he is not there already. Back from the Dead, his fifth thriller, continues his upward trajectory and is his best book to date by far.” 
– Bookreporter 

“Enormously satisfying…. Peter Leonard, son of the late Elmore, has inherited his father’s talent for lithe, witty prose and his knack for twisty, propulsive storytelling.” 
– The Independent
