Publisher Description

Winner of the 2012 Philip K. Dick Award

Samuil Petrovitch is a survivor.

He survived the nuclear fallout in St. Petersburg and hid in the London Metrozone - the last city in England. He's lived this long because he's a man of rules and logic.

For example, getting involved = a bad idea.

But when he stumbles into a kidnapping in progress, he acts without even thinking. Before he can stop himself, he's saved the daughter of the most dangerous man in London.

And clearly saving the girl = getting involved.

Now, the equation of Petrovitch's life is looking increasingly complex.

Russian mobsters + Yakuza + something called the New Machine Jihad = one dead Petrovitch.

But Petrovitch has a plan - he always has a plan - he's just not sure it's a good one.

Occasionally brilliant

While the majority of the book feels like it was written using sentences learned from action thrillers, there are some really nice moments mixed in. I found some of the transitions to be confusing. The plot itself doesn't feel like it begins moving until the last third of the book. Also, it seems like the author wanted his characters to be younger than he was able to write them. Otherwise, this book feels like an action movie--if you don't think about it too hard, you can have a good time.
