REVENANT: French. Present participle of revenir, to return; to return home; to return from the dead; a ghost a spirit.
REVENANT is an epic adventure story - a stirring tale of sudden flight, mysterious vanishings and unforeseen reunions. It travels from 19th Century Europe in the midst of the industrial revolution to America at the brink of World War I; from the splendor of imperial Berlin to the desolate slums of London; from Warsaw in the throes of bloody insurrection to an impoverished Polish village in the grip of a pogrom.
REVENANT is a vivid portrayal of the odyssey of the naive young son of an international banking family who is seduced into abandoning his privileged life to join a cell of anarchists in London. He had never anticipated the danger and dread that follows him as he embarks on a career as a violent revolutionary, political assassin, and finally, as a desperate fugitive.
A suspenseful adventure story, REVENANT captures the human drama of momentous world events. It is also a novel of ideas: of conflict between ambition and self-sacrifice, between a passion for the moral and the just, and an abhorrence of the violence perpetrated to obtain it.
