From official release/information:
In Equations of Life, a tour de force of a thriller, Samuil Petrovitch, a displaced Russian, is caught in a struggle between the police and two criminal groups trying to kill him. Set in post Armageddon London, Petrovitch saves the daughter of a Japanese crime boss from kidnapping by a rival gang of Russians and ends with a contract on his head.
Product Description: 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.
