Synopsis:
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.

My Thoughts and Opinion:
WOW!!! Peter Leonard did not disappoint for this anxiously awaited sequel!!!

I was first introduced to this author in January, 2012 when I read and reviewed  Voices of the Dead and became a fan of his work.  Even though it has been a year, within the first few paragraphs, I was drawn back in and buckled up for another fast paced thrill ride.

In Voices of the Dead, Nazi war criminal, Ernst Hess, was shot three times by Holocaust survivor and victim of Hess’, Harry Levin, who believes the shots were fatal.  But were they?  Thus begins Back From The Dead.  And this time, Hess is back with vengeance leaving innocent bodies in his wake, without a thought.  However, Harry Levin is just as determined to hunt him down and make him pay for his sins.

Leonard doesn’t miss a beat. The same white knuckle read he takes his readers on in Voices of the Dead is as equally suspenseful and action packed in Back From The Dead.  Once again, the pages kept turning because I could not put this novel down.  I found myself trying to read faster to keep up with the action.  The characters come to life. Peter Leonard’s writing is nothing short of amazing.  The only negative is that now I have to anxiously await his next novel.  Highly recommend both Back From The Dead and Voices of the Dead!!!!  You won’t be disappointed!!
