9780099535799: Einstein Girl

At the heart of truth lies madness... Two months before Hitler's rise to power, a beautiful young woman is found naked and near death in the woods outside Berlin. When she finally wakes from her coma, she can remember nothing, not even her name. The only clue to her identity is a handbill found nearby, advertising a public lecture by Albert Einstein: 'On the Present State of Quantum Theory'. Psychiatrist Martin Kirsch takes the case, little suspecting that this will be his last. As he searches for the truth about 'the Einstien Girl', professional fascination turns to reckless love. His investigations lead him to a remote corner of Siberia via a psychiatric hospital in Zurich. There the inheritor of Einstein's genius - his youngest son, Eduard - is writing a book that will destroy his illustrious father and, in the process, change the world.

Review:

"A serious, well-informed and interesting thriller about the private life and family of an undoubted genius. Excellent period setting in Berlin in 1932 and numerous psychological insights... highly recommended" -- Jessica Mann * Literary Review * "A stylish thriller... Strands of history and imagination are beautifully woven together" * The Times * "A first-rate historical thriller, set in the early 1930s and inspired by correspondence between Einstein and his first wife... Sington's grasp of period detail is awesome...and his writing has a rich, lustrous quality...This is a serious novel with plenty to say about the unhappy affinity between genius and madness" -- John O'Connell * The Guardian * "Intriguing novel... atmospheric thriller" * Irish Independent * "Sington creates a sense of unease from the first page" -- Alastair Mabbott * Herald *
