    Best-selling author Simon Morden draws upon his expertise as a bona fide rocket scientist to deliver mindbending science fiction. In Theories of Flight, Petrovich is the guardian of several secrets. For starters, he knows how to make anti-gravity. And if that’s not impressive enough, he also knows which secret server farm hides a sentient computer program - the same one that nearly wiped out the Metrozone. Now someone wants to kill Petrovich - and doesn’t seem to care what is destroyed in the process.

    Simon Morden scored hits with the first two volumes of his acclaimed Samuil Petrovitch series. The final book in the trilogy, Degrees of Freedom finds Petrovitch still trying to make his way in the post-apocalyptic nightmare world he calls home. His girl has left him—though he’s sure she still loves him. The New Machine Jihad is calling out to him—even though he destroyed it once already. And the Armageddonists are hell-bent on blowing the world up—again. It seems everyone wants something from Petrovitch, but all he wants is his freedom.
