Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Mongolia is in a state of change from communism to capitalism, an interesting backdrop to a book of European/Russian politics and the chaotic market forces that spawn crime. It is a race-against-time tale, an easy read and the start of a new crime series.

Similar this month: Peter Temple.
Comparison: Barbara Nadel, Donna Leon, Qiu Xiaolong.

Synopsis

The Shadow Walker by Michael Walters

Set in a country struggling to come to terms with the legacy of its past and the promise of its future, The Shadow Walker is a gripping thriller that introduces Inspector Nergui of the Mongolian Serious Crime squad.

As winter’s first snows fall on Ulaan Bataar, the mutilated body of a British geologist is found in the city’s most expensive hotel, apparently the fourth victim of a serial killer. With political pressure to solve the crimes mounting, Nergui, ex-head of the Serious Crime squad, is ordered back to his former role, building an uneasy working relationship with his successor and protégé, Doripalam, and with Drew McLeish, a senior British CID officer sent out to support the investigation.

But the murders continue – leading the officers through the disused factories of the decaying city, out on to the steppes among nomadic herdsmen and illegal gold prospectors, and down into the barren landscapes of the Gobi. And then McLeish himself is kidnapped...
