Columbia University professor David Swift is called to the hospital to comfort his mentor, a physicist who’s been brutally attacked. With his last words, the dying man gives his former pupil a seemingly random string of numbers that could hold the key to Einstein’s last and greatest secret: Einheitliche Feldtheorie. The Theory of Everything. Einstein’s theory—a set of equations that could explain all the forces of nature—would have revolutionized our understanding of the universe. But Einstein never discovered it … or did he?

Within hours, David is arrested by the FBI and taken to a secret interrogation center. But the FBI isn’t the only faction pursuing Einstein’s long-hidden theory. A Russian mercenary wants David to talk, and he’ll do whatever it takes. On the run for his life, David teams up with an old girlfriend, a brilliant Princeton scientist, and frantically tries to piece together Einstein’s final theory to reveal its staggering consequences.We used E=mc2 to build the atom bomb …What could we do with the key to creation?

    Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Einstein would have loved this book. It’s a great thriller, it has a sure feel for politics, and the science is both fun and solid. He always dreamed that he would discover a unified theory that explained all of nature’s forces. Now this book makes that quest come alive.” 

    Walter Isaacson, New York Times bestselling author of Einstein

  • “Anyone who reads the first few pages will be hooked…It’s a smart, suspenseful page-turner—perfect beach reading for the physics geek who likes a dose of action with their equations.” 

    New Scientist

  • “The relentless action, including one giant twist and plenty of smaller ones, builds to a pulse-pounding conclusion.”

    " The story is based on Einstein having formulated the unifying theorem, but then was frightened by its implications. He did not publish, but did share parts of it with some young understudies. 40 or so years later, there is some leaking of the esistance of the theory and there is a rush to capture. Some flavors of the TV show 24 are in the plot line. Alpert is a staff writer for Scientific American. The plot line is good, but as a writer he needs to work on the dialog. "

    " My first by this author. His first book too. I would read him again. Sometimes a little too technical, but suspensful till almost the end with a few curves in there. Of course, the good guy purvails and the bad guys get their just do. "

    " I'd rate it 3.5 if I could. It's not bad, but it has the feel of a first novel where he pushed a little too hard in parts. "
