Princeton, New Jersey-1951. Just off a small street, an unidentified
man stands hidden, carefully monitoring an unfolding scene. A
police-escorted motorcade stops at a small, unremarkable house while an
old man with a shock of white hair jumps out of the lead car. As he
ambles up the walkway, another man around the same age, also sporting
wild white hair, descends from the porch and warmly greets him. The
observer lurking in the shadows is from the CIA; fellow operatives are
also close by, recording the conversation taking place inside the house
between newly arrived Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion and his
host, the world-renowned scientist Albert Einstein. The subject of their
conversation: nuclear weapons and the existence of God.
Egypt—today. World-famous cryptanalyst Thomas Noronha is waiting on the
front steps of the Egyptian Museum when an attractive, dark-haired
woman approaches and invites him to lunch in the Muslim quarter. Her
name is Ariana Pakravan. Over the course of their lunch she hires Thomas
to decipher a cryptogram hidden in a secret document that has recently
been discovered and is under heavy security in Tehran. Penned by Albert
Einstein, the manuscript's title is, simply, Die Gottesformel: The God Formula.
Thus begins a story of love and treason, a fast-paced adventure that
takes Thomas and Ariana on a breathtaking pursuit from Cairo to Lhasa,
from Princeton to Tehran, from Coimbra to Shigatse. Along the way, The Einstein Enigma
offers up a mystic fusion of science and religion, a meeting of
Einstein and God in an unforgettable spiritual search, and a
mind-bending trip to the source of time, the essence of the universe,
and the meaning of life.
