READ AN EXTRACT FROM EQUATIONS OF LIFE

About the Book:

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.

Reviews:

‘Small, immoral, likeably unlikeable, Petrovitch steps fully formed onto the neon slick streets of London as if on the run from a classic anime’ Jon Courtenay Grimwood

‘A fast-paced thriller … an absorbing read’ Telegraph

‘Engrossing … Samuil’s mix of action and research makes him a fresh and engaging character, and the escalating scale of danger and violence moves the plot along briskly.’ Publishers Weekly

‘A heart-stopping onslaught of science and action for much of its perfectly judged duration, paced like a runaway train, and Morden handles the fireworks with a steady hand … truly exhilarating stuff’ The Speculative Scotsman

‘An exciting futuristic science fiction starring an antihero who knows the Equations of Life logically mean stay out of everyone else s life; yet he begins emotionally to comprehend that may be life bit that is not living … Samuil and the cast make for wonderfully dark future’ Alternative Worlds
