'Michael Walters's Blog' - The Shadow Walker

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'. The Guardian added that ‘Walters ably brings his uncommon setting to teeming life', while The Sunday Telegraph described the books as ‘an intriguing police procedural, with a formidable sleuth'.

The books focus on Nergui, 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 detective; Radnaa, an elegant female member of the judiciary; and many more...

The website aims to provide an introduction to the books, excerpts and reviews, links to information about Mongolia , and anything else that takes our fancy. And feedback on the books or the site is always very welcome.
