Simon Morden's Russian ex-pat physicist revolutionary, Samuil Petrovitch's is back ten years after the events of the Metrozone trilogy. His adopted daughter Lucy, now 24 and off in Alaska doing research on aurora physics, suddenly goes missing from the Freezone's pervasive personal computer links. In fact, the whole area around where she was goes dark, and it looks like something really big fell out of the sky just before it happened. Petrovitch, Maddie (his gal/wife) and the rest of Freezone are wild to find Lucy, but the US government is dragging its heels on a search effort. Freezone and the Feds don't get along well, in part because they hacked the US global missile shield back in the day and stole all the nuclear codes. But that was then. Water under the bridge. So what's up with their lame search effort?

From official release/information:

Product Description: Welcome to the Metrozone - post-apocalyptic London of the Future, full of homeless refugees, street gangs, crooked cops and mad cults. Enter Samuil Petrovitch: a Russian émigré with a smart mouth, a dodgy heart and a dodgier past. He's brilliant, selfish, cocky and might just be most unlikely champion a city has ever had. Armed with a genius-level intellect, extensive cybernetic replacements, a built-in AI with god-like capabilities and a plethora of Russian swearwords - he's saved this city from ruin more than once. He's also made a few enemies in the process - Reconstruction America being one of them. So when his adopted daughter Lucy goes missing, he's got a clue who's responsible. And there's no way he can let them get away with it.
