Michael Walters Biography

Michael Walters is the author of the Nergui novels - a series of crime thrillers set in modern-day Mongolia.

Walters first visited Mongolia in the early 1990s, when democracy was just arriving to the country. The dabbling poet and short story writer, who’d been raised in the same mining village as D H Lawrence, and who had made his living in the oil industry, broadcasting, banking, and as an international management consultant in fields ranging from parliaments to law enforcement, suddenly found himself struck by the idea that this fascinating country—in such a complex state of temporal and national limbo—would make an extraordinary setting for a crime thriller. Ten years later he began writing The Shadow Walker, his first novel in a three-book series, featuring the only Mongolian protagonist in crime fiction history.

When not traveling, Walters lives in Manchester with his wife and three children.

The Shadow Walker is his first novel. Two subsequent novels were published in the UK in 2008, The Adversary and The Outcast.
