The Adversary

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


For more than twenty years a hidden hand has ruled the backstreets of Ulan Baatar, but now Muunokhoi, the once untouchable head of the Mongolia's largest and most powerful criminal empire, has finally been caught.
It should be the Serious Crime Team's finest hour. But nothing is ever that simple in the new Mongolia.
When Muunokhoi's trial starts to collapse, Nergui and Doripalam - the ex-head of the Team and his one-time protégé - are forced to acknowledge that something rotten lies at the heart of the organization they have dedicated their lives to. With the crime lord's acquittal impending, and his revenge a cold certainty, Nergui and Doripalam are not even sure they can trust each other.

From Publishers Weekly

26 January 2009 – Nergui, the former head of the Mongolian Serious Crime Team, and his successor and prot g , Doripalam, take on Muunokhoi, Mongolia s top crime boss, in Walters s nifty follow-up to The Shadow Walker (2008). The vacuum left by the breakup of the Soviet Union created an opportunity that Muunokhoi was quick to exploit, and since then he s become so powerful that he s virtually untouchable. Nergui and Doripalam, who face an uphill battle to reform Ulan Baatar s corrupt and inept police force, are embarrassed when faked police evidence ruins their case against the gangster in the courtroom. A race for long-hidden (and perhaps nonexistent) evidence that might incriminate Muunokhoi leads to kidnappings and murder. Nicely plotted with interesting secondary characters, this mystery is also notable for glimpses of the turmoil the ancient Mongolian nation is undergoing in its transformation to a modern democracy.
