Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316125180, Mass Market Paperback)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.

Samuil Petrovitch is an anti-social Russian ‚emigr‚e in the overcrowded, decaying urban jungle of the London Metrozone. Going against his customary principle of "don't get involved," Petrovitch surprises himself one day by performing an uncharacteristically kind act, which results in his being propelled into a world of rival gang lords, exiled yakuza, crooked cops, crazed prophets, and gun-toting warrior nuns.
