A heart-stopping adventure ... A chilling Nazi legacy in today’s Southern Africa.
A month after the end of World War II, a U-boat with a mysterious cargo founders off South West Africa’s treacherous Skeleton Coast. Two German Officers reach the surface and battle their way to the shore, but the bloody struggle that follows leaves one man murdered and the other facing a perilous journey across the terrible, burning sands...

A simple salvage operation rapidly escalates into an international manhunt, with much more than sunken treasure at stake...
