From the Editor

Hitler stole it. The Office of Strategic Services recovered it. The Pentagon thinks it’s powerful enough to enlist some of the top professors at Princeton to study it. And every encounter seems to lead to someone’s death. The relic in question, a mysterious ossuary containing strange artifacts and human skeletal remains, could spell an end to World War II…or the beginning of something far worse.

The startling premise of Robert Masello’s new supernatural thriller had me hooked from the get-go. As a devotee of Albert Einstein—one of the twentieth century’s greatest thinkers and most outspoken humanists—I went into my first reading of this chilling, fast-paced tale with every reason to like it. Turns out there were many more reasons than I’d imagined.

Masello is an award-winning journalist, television writer, and author of both novels and nonfiction, with a particular talent for historical thrillers. (His next book is a hugely ambitious reimagining of the lives of Robert Louis Stevenson and Jack the Ripper.) In The Einstein Prophecy, he delivers not only a boldly original take on Einstein’s wartime service during his tenure at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton but also a vivid, immersive depiction of this historical setting, seasoned with an engaging romance between the beautiful, headstrong Egyptian scholar Simone Rashid and army lieutenant Lucas Athan, wounded by war in more ways than one.

In a year that marks the one hundredth anniversary of Einstein’s groundbreaking theory of general relativity, what better way to celebrate than with a summertime thriller that races at a blistering pace to a provocative conclusion?

- Jason Kirk, Editor


Product description

Product Description

As war rages in 1944, young army lieutenant Lucas Athan recovers a sarcophagus excavated from an Egyptian tomb. Shipped to Princeton University for study, the box contains mysteries that only Lucas, aided by brilliant archaeologist Simone Rashid, can unlock.

These mysteries may, in fact, defy—or fulfill—the dire prophecies of Albert Einstein himself.

Struggling to decipher the sarcophagus’s strange contents, Lucas and Simone unwittingly release forces for both good and unmitigated evil. The fate of the world hangs not only on Professor Einstein’s secret research but also on Lucas’s ability to defeat an unholy adversary more powerful than anything he ever imagined.

From the mind of bestselling author and award-winning journalist Robert Masello comes a thrilling, page-turning adventure where modern science and primordial supernatural powers collide.

The Einstein Prophecy by Robert Masello is an absorbing and entertaining supernatural historical mystery thriller with elements of horror, occult and a delightful dose of romance. Full of suspense, this is one story that is designed to hook you from the first page as the award-winning journalist-author has crafted an entertaining story that is both chilling and thrilling.

Set during the Second World War in 1994, the story revolves around the discovery of a mysterious relic, an ancient Egyptian ossuary, in Germany by American soldier Lt. Lucas Athan. Thought to be stolen by Hitler, the relic containing unexplained items and human skeletal remains was brought to Princeton, New Jersey, where it was thoroughly studied. And there seems to be unexplained deaths connected with the mysterious ossuary. Egyptian scholar Simone Rashid, who along with her father first unearthed the relic, joined Lucas in Princeton where Albert Einstein was also working in the same campus on a secret project. And they must solve the mystery before it is too late.

The Einstein Prophecy by Robert Masello promises a lot of excitement and thrill but as the story unfolds, some of the early expectation gave way to a sense of predictability and though the story moved along at a swift speed, there seems to be stunted progression in how it moves forward, and at one point it seems to be breaking apart at the seams. There are various threads in the story but all tied up in the end. The romance between Lucas Athan and Simone Rashid added a delightful flavour to the story. Like the unexplained mystery which resulted in several deaths, The Einstein Prophecy ended up coming short of expectation though it is still an enjoyable and engaging supernatural thriller.

I found this story had some interesting concepts. It was, at times, thought provoking. There were qiute a few threads to chase down,. Everything from theology to philosophy, and physics to morals and ethics, myths and legends, gets a look in too.
All in all, The Einstein Prophecy, is an enjoyable read. Especially if you like historical fiction.

By the time I was a third of the way through I found myself quite disappointed. Whilst it was reasonably well written, the plot was far fetched and just too hard for me to believe.

I had to force myself to finish this book, it just dragged on - and painfully so. A very disappointing read.

Too many parallel plots - to much unbelievable violence - the author's preoccupation with sexual violence verges on pornographic - "heros" are far below role model standard - unbelievable phone conversation with Stephen Hawking! - not an author I will seek to read again.

It was fine, reasonably enjoyable. But I found the writing to be somewhat naive and the storytelling less believable. But if you are just looking for something easy to read to pass the time and are into thrillers, you'll probably find some enjoyment in this. I guess it was just a bit too far fetched for me to get behind - and I'm someone who likes Sci Fi and Fantasy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It took me back to a horrendous time in history and even though it had impossible fantastical things happening, it is so well written that I believed every word. Marvelous characters, especially Einstein.

What a journey that Robert Masello takes you in this book.
I particularly loved his writings on the personal life of Albert Einstein. I can just imagine that this is what he was like.
I didn't feel that the author went over the top in his version of the race to invent the atomic bomb, but oh, the ramifications of it all are horrifying to me. Have we let out the demons that can destroy us?
This book has made me think about a lot of things that affect our lives, and isn't that all you want from a book. :)
