This is the second Sonja Kurtz novel. Sonja, who appeared previously in the novel The Delta, is in Vietnam at the start of this gripping adventure on a personal revenge mission. To get to her target, she kidnaps an escort girl called Irina, forcing the young Russian to help her.

Sonja’s mission is successful but, unbeknownst to our heroine; Irina will soon be setting out on her own personal revenge mission - to kill Sonja.  As if that were not enough, Kurtz’s daughter Emma sends her a call for help from Namibia where she is working as a student on an archaeological dig. A body identified as one, Hudson Brand has been found which is going to be the magnet that draws some very unsavoury characters to Namibia as well as Sonja and… Hudson Brand?

Park has written a decent thriller which flags at times but builds up to quite a climax in the final third of the book.  We learn quite a lot about Sonja’s troubled past and why she has become a hard-drinking, psychologically-troubled woman. While clearly the heroine of the book, Hudson Brand and Emma Kurtz both play a very important part in the resolution of the plot. Unfortunately, some of the other characters are rather predictable and two-dimensional, particularly Irina Aleksandrova but this does not detract from the excitement as the race to recover a modern-day treasure lost in the Namibian desert gains pace. A mixture of politics, Namibian history, action, sex and violence, this book certainly delivers a treat to those who love the thriller genre.
