And the trilogy continued in May and June:
- Theories of Flight (Samuil Petrovitch) by Simon Morden (May 1, 2011) (Recorded Books lists the audiobook as forthcoming September 18)
- Degrees of Freedom (Samuil Petrovitch) by Simon Morden (Jun 1, 2011) (is listed at Recorded Books without a publication date)
Anyway, I was intrigued by the book description way back when:
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.
The audiobook sample audio certainly sounds well done, and am hoping to pick up the first book in audio when I get a chance.
