This is the second book in a police procedural series set in Mongolia, which is unusual enough to start off with.
"They are out on the steppe, miles from home. Miles from anywhere.
It is late afternoon, early spring. The immense sky is clear, just a few wisps of cloud against the rich blue. Everything - even the snow tipped mountains that surround them - is dwarfed by comparison."
For more than twenty years a hidden hand has ruled the backstreets of Ulan Baatar, but now Muunokhoi, the once untouchable head of 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.
