London, 1949. One foggy night, Rosie Lane sees her son Brian on the banks of the Thames. Only he died four months earlier; and when she comes near him, he crumbles into dust. An incident strikingly similar to Kathy’s own encounter with Göring in Namibia. Pushing on with her investigation, the young British agent will have to contend with bloodcurdling phenomena – monstrous insects, accelerated aging – as much as the hostility of local Nazi sympathisers.

Chicago, 1948. Martin Jones, insignificant pastor of the small Church of the Sons of Ezekiel, is visited by someone who calls himself a messenger of God and performs a miracle. The small-time preacher soon becomes the charismatic leader of millions of faithful. May 1949, Namibia. Kathy Austin is in a coma. But as the MI5 agent sent to bring her back to England has an unfortunate encounter, she too receives a rather ... miraculous visit.
I am a big fan of Leo and what he has put together in the past.  Namibia is no exception. The story with all of its twists and turns, the art -again the locations and the colour techniques used- along with the various craft and creatures not to mention aliens. This is developing into a cross between  Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
I almost expect Professor Bernard Quatermass to walk in at some point!
Recommended.
