An Empty Coast follows Sonja Kurtz, a former soldier, supposedly retired mercenary who is in Vietnam carrying out a personal revenge mission when her daughter, Emma, sends a call for help. She is on a dig at the edge of Namibia’s Etosha National Park studying archaeology and discovers a body that dates back to the 1980s during to the country’s liberation. The remains, identified as that of Hudson Brand, are a key piece of a puzzle, and set to reveal the location of a modern-day buried treasure. A find people will kill for. Sonja returns to the country of her birth to help Emma, but she’s missing.
Former CIA agent, Hudson Brand, is very much alive and is also drawn back to Namibia to finally solve a decades-old mystery whose clues are entombed in an empty corner of the desert. The novel which consists of a tale of action, adventure and romance, also sets a stunning quest scenario that only Africa can offer.
