Publisher Comments:

?A crime debut that evokes modern Mongolia with vividness and flair?a robust and entertaining first novel.?( The Age)

As winter falls upon the streets of Ulan Bataar, Mongolia, a serial killer is just getting warmed up. When the mutilated body of a fourth victim is found in one of the city?s most expensive hotels, Nergui, the former head of the Serious Crimes squad, is no closer to catching the killer and will accept any help he can get.

Drew McLeish, a senior British CID officer and no stranger to the savage side of human nature, is sent out to lend his expertise to the investigation. From the abandoned factories of the city?s decaying suburbs to the icy expanse of the barren steppes, Nergui and McLeish follow a trail of the dead.

Review:

"Set in Mongolia, Walters's riveting first novel opens with a slew of murders investigated by a local policeman, Nergui, and a visiting British police inspector, Drew McLeish. The bloody nature of the murders makes them suspect a serial killer, but when a member of Nergui's staff joins the list of victims, the case becomes more complex. Traveling to a tourist camp during the investigation into the dead cop's background, the two detectives are confronted with a double murder. Suddenly, political or business motivations for the carnage come to the fore. A kidnapping starts the clock ticking toward a thrilling conclusion in a spooky abandoned factory. Throughout, the mysterious Nergui, who has a possible spy background, and the stoic McLeish make for a potent and exciting team. The evocative descriptions of modern Mongolia create a unique backdrop for a suspenseful mystery full of misdirection and terror." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A serial killer is loose in Ulan Bataar, Mongolia, and Nergui, the former head of the Serious Crimes squad, is no closer to catching the killer and will accept any help he can get. Drew McLeish, a senior British CID officer, is sent out to aid in the investigation.

Synopsis:

A victim is found with no hands and no head, dumped in an unlit side street. This kind of crime is unheard of to authorities of Ulan Baatar, Mongolia. But it's not the last, and the Serious Crimes Team is no closer to catching the killer. That's why senior British investigating officer Drew McLeish is called in. Give thousand miles from home, McLeish may be a stranger to Ulan Baatar, but not to the savage side of human nature.
