Michael Walters

Michael Walters is the author of the Nergui novels - a series of crime thrillers set in modern-day Mongolia, described by Maxim Jakubowski in The Guardian as

'a worthy new series in the making'.

The first in the series, The Shadow Walker , was described in The Independent as

compulsive reading...the descriptions of Mongolia are richly enjoyable'.

Paul Blezard, OneWord Radio, described the books as

'Like Inspector Morse re-written by John Le Carré and set in Mongolia' -

The Guardian added that

'Walters ably brings his uncommon setting to teeming life',

while The Sunday Telegraph described The Shadow Walker as

'an intriguing police procedural, with a formidable sleuth'.

The books focus on Neugui, a senior official at the Ministry of Security and Doripalam, the head of the Mongolian Serious Crimes Team. These two central characters are surrounded by a diverse and growing cast of supporting players - Drew McLeish, a CID officer seconded from the UK; Tunjin, an aging, overweight and alcoholic detecive; Radnaa, an elegant female member of the judiciary; and many more...
