On a dark night in Lusaka, Zambia, an adolescent girl is brutally assaulted. In shock, she cannot speak. Her identity is a mystery. Where did she come from? Was the attack a random street crime or a premeditated act? The girl’s case is taken up by Zoe Fleming, a human rights lawyer working in Africa. A betrayal in her own past gives the girl’s plight a special resonance for Zoe, and she is determined to find the perpetrator and seek justice. Also investigating on behalf of the Zambian police is Joseph Kabuta. At first reluctant to work together, they team up. Yet their progress is thwarted at every turn and it soon becomes clear that their opponents are every bit as powerful and determined as they are corrupt.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A hauntingly good read. The Garden of Burning Sand is a powerful and moving novel about rape and corruption in the country of Zambia. This fast-paced, engaging story is told through the eyes of an American human rights lawyer working in the country, and the details on every page make it deserving of readers’ complete attention. This one’s an absolute must-read.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

  • “By setting this story against the backdrop of Zambia’s rocky presidential election, Addison ratchets up the tension and makes the already-palpable threat of violence against Zoe and her cohorts more real.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Addison delivers another compelling novel exposing human rights violations…A sense of urgency will keep readers engrossed, and, despite the tragedy depicted, they will also find comforting themes connected to love and family. Fans of Addison’s first novel and readers who enjoy socially conscious fiction will want this.”

    Library Journal

  • “Addison’s second novel is both an affecting tale of a tragically abused girl and a convincing plea for humanitarian support in Africa.”
