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.

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 getting involved with her. Now, the equation of Petrovitch’s life is looking increasingly complex.

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

Quotes & Awards

  • “Speeds along with energetic panache.”

    Times (London)

  • “Morden has a natural talent for a plot that keeps the reader guessing.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “A fast-paced thriller…an absorbing read.”

    Telegraph (London)

  • “Morden keeps up a breathless breakneck pace that doesn’t sacrifice character depth or intelligence…The Samuel Petrovich Trilogy promises to be a fast-paced thrill ride for the cynical urban space cowboy in all of us.”


  • “An engrossing, if occasionally goofy, adventure…Samuli’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

  • “Small, immoral, likably unlikable, Petrovich steps fully formed onto the neon-slick streets of London as if on the run from a classic anime.”

    Jon Courtenay Grimwood, author of the Arabesk trilogy
  • Winner of the 2012 Philip K. Dick Award

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Arthur | 2/19/2014

    " Good fun post-apocalyptic sci-fi, which won me over in the end, but I found the author's style very pulpy, like he was going for sci-fi Chandler but didn't quite make it. "

    " I tried a sample of this on my Kindle on Sunday....fast forward to 3am and I finished this and immediately bought the second. I am not a "hard" scifi person but I LOVED this book. Dystopian future, brilliant yet flawed hero, gun toting nuns, AI...it has it all. My only complaint is that while the world building was decent I wanted to know more about how they got to this place and the author doled it out slowly and in little bits. Better than a huge infodump but I wish a little more detail about the state of the world had been included in this first book. It turns out that the author created the bones of the world in a series of short stories available on his website...when I finish the third in the trilogy I may go back and read those. "

    " The main character is a little too smart, and everyone seems to swoon for him for some reason, but the story builds nicely, the characters are interesting, and the enemy is quite terrifying. "

    " I love this book even though i didn't understand what the russian words and japanese words meant but i can care less. I would recommend my friends to read it. I have the two other books from the triology and i can't wait to attack them lol. I don't like to give spoilers I suggest you read the book :) "
