Pg. 69: Michael Walters' "The Adversary"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: The Adversary by Michael Walters.

About the book, from the publisher:
In Ulan Bataar, the head of Mongolia's largest and most powerful crime empire is finally about to get his comeuppance. But it seems that the wealthy Muunokhoi has friends in high places.

When Muunokhoi's trial begins to fall apart, Nergui, the former head of the Serious Crime team, and Doripalam, his replacement and onetime protégé, are forced to look internally to find out who in the justice system has submitted to the lure of the crime lord's power—only to realize that Muunokhoi's deadly influence is much stronger than either of them could have envisioned...

The Independent described The Shadow Walker, the first book in the Nergui series, as "compulsive reading...[and] the descriptions of Mongolia are richly enjoyable."
