    There's a book by B. Thaller called just like that: 'The Dirac Equation'. Read it as a first.

    The Dirac equation is a 1 particle equation. For 2 relativistic particles, the situation is much more complicated.
    Some approximate approaches are Breit equation, the Bethe- Salpeter equation, and the Salpeter equation. You could look them up by using Google.
