From the Dead: A Tom Thorne Novel

In the ninth Tom Thorne novel, a man long thought killed by his long-suffering wife, turns up alive. And other people begin to turn up dead.

A decade ago, 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 sentenced to 10 years in prison. But before she is released, Donna receives a nasty shock: an anonymous letter containing a photo of her husband. The man she hates with every fibre of her being --- the man she paid to have murdered --- seems very much alive and well. But how is it possible that her husband is still alive? Where is he? Who sent the photo, and why?
