Bahamas, 1971, and Ernst Hess, missing presumed dead, regains consciousness to find himself stuck in a hospital bed on a strange ward in a foreign country...

Back from the Dead pitches us and the gang - Harry, Cordell, Colette and Joyce - back into a desperate fight to the death, which moves from the Bahamas to Florida, and from Germany to the South of France, as their worst fear comes back to haunt them.

Whip-smart, action packed and darkly funny, the second part of Peter Leonard's glorious two-hander packs some serious punch.
