Product Description

It has been a decade since Alan Langford’s charred remains were discovered in his burnt-out car. His wife Donna was found guilty of conspiracy to murder her husband and served ten years in prison. But just before she is released, Donna receives a nasty shock: an anonymous letter containing a photo of her husband.

The man she hates with every fiber of her being—the man she paid to have murdered—seems very much alive and well. How is it possible that her husband is still alive? Where is he? Who sent the photo, and why?

Detective Inspector Tom Thorne becomes involved in a case where nothing and no one are what they seem. It will take him much further from his London beat than he has ever been before—and closer to a killer who will do anything to protect his new life.


“An intense mystery-thriller. . . . Exciting to the very end, From the Dead is especially recommended for connoisseurs of quality crime writing.”
      —Wisconsin Bookwatch

“Paul Thornley narrates Billingham’s ninth Tom Thorne police procedural with excellent pacing and characterizations.”

“A first-rate British crime writer who is too little known in this country. . . . The police procedural is a deceptively simple genre. . . . The art, of course, lies in the ingenuity of the crime, the depth of the characterizations and the quality of the writing. Billingham excels in all regards. . . . Tom Thorne [is] worth getting to know.”
      —The Washington Post

“A chillingly clever criminal boosts this intelligent procedural.”
      —Publishers Weekly
