Product Description


This is British sci-fi at its hard-boiled best, and it's worth reading just for the irascible Petrovitch: a diplomat lacking diplomacy, who delights in confronting the idiocy of the world around him (GUARDIAN)

Great dialogue, great characters, great settings - this takes post-apocalyptic worlds to a new height, with sensational results. Absolutely riveting! (BOOKS MONTHLY)

Filled to the brim with cybernetic enhancements to his body and sporting an artificial-intelligence companion who's with him wherever he goes, Petrovitch is as snarky, impulsive, and coarse as ever. He's also a genius who can manipulate computer systems without being anywhere near them and can access the most secret of top-secret files without moving a muscle.

But can he find his missing daughter before something horrible happens to her? Morden has built a fully realized, believable, postapocalyptic world and populated it with full-bodied characters. Sure, Petrovitch is a bit (well, a lot, actually) over-the-top, but so what? He's also completely engaging and so compelling you don't dare look away from him, for fear you might miss something.


I just slammed through it, and it's a blast (SFREVU)

Completely enveloping and thoroughly absorbing . . . Morden is a master storyteller (INTERZONE)

Book Description

An action-packed new science fiction thriller set in the world of the Philip K. Dick Award-winning Samuil Petrovitch novels

About the Author

Dr Simon Morden is a bona fide rocket scientist, having degrees in geology and planetary geophysics, and is one of the few people who can truthfully claim to have held a chunk of Mars in his hands. Simon Morden lives in Gateshead with a fierce lawyer, two unruly children and a couple of miniature panthers.
