Back cover copy

Princeton, New Jersey, 1951: As a CIA operative watches from the shadows, two old men--Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion and world-renowned scientist Albert Einstein--enter Einstein's home to speak privately about nuclear weapons and the existence of God.

Present Day Cairo, Egypt: Over lunch in the Muslim quarter, world-famous cryptanalyst Thomas Noronha is hired by a beautiful dark-haired woman, Ariana Pakravan, to decipher a cryptogram hidden in a recently discovered secret document under heavy security in Tehran. A manuscript penned by Albert Einstein, it is titled Die Gottesformel: The God Formula.

So begins a remarkable adventure that spans the world, as Thomas and Ariana pursue the dangerous truth behind an incredible document. The Einstein Enigma is a breathtaking fusion of science, thriller, and religion, a mind-bending trip to the source of time, the essence of the universe, and the meaning of life itself.
