Final theory : a novel

A Spellbinding Thriller about a Science History Professor on the Run for his Life and an Unpublished Einstein Theory that Could Change the World Debut novelist Mark Alpert brings one of the most explosive books of 2008, seamlessly weaving current issues of science, history, and politics with white-knuckle chases. David Swift, a professor at Columbia University, is called to the hospital to comfort his mentor, a physicist who's been brutally tortured. Before dying, the old man wheezes "Einheitliche Feldtheorie." The Theory of Everything. The Destroyer of Worlds. Could this be Einstein's proposed Unified Theory--a set of equations that combines the physics of galaxies with the laws of atoms' Einstein never succeeded in discovering it. Or did he' Within hours of hearing his mentor's last words, David is running for his life. The FBI and a ruthless mercenary are vying to get their hands on the long-hidden theory. Teaming up with his old girlfriend, a brilliant Princeton scientist, David frantically works out Einstein's final theory to reveal the staggering scope of its consequences. With publishers around the world snapping up rights in twenty-two countries, the book has already become a global phenomenon, and the dynamic characters and gripping plot will keep readers compulsively turning the pages until the very end.

  • "Een wetenschapper wordt opgejaagd door een groep terroristen omdat hij in het bezit is van een document waarin Einstein een theorie uiteenzet die kan leiden tot wapens die reizen met de snelheid van het licht."
  • ""Atemlose Spannung, überraschende Wendungen und eine faszinierende Theorie." Tess Gerritsen David Swift, Professor an der Universität von Columbia, wird zu seinem ehemaligen Mentor, dem Physiker Hans Kleinmann, gerufen. Der alte Mann ist brutal überfallen worden und kämpft nun im Krankenhaus um sein Leben. Als Swift an sein Bett tritt, flüstert Kleinmann ihm eine kryptische Zahlenfolge sowie zwei Wörter auf Deutsch ins Ohr: "Einheitliche Feldtheorie" - dann stirbt er. Swift glaubt, dass sein alter Lehrer, der vor fünfzig Jahren Assistent von Albert Einstein war, halluziniert hat. Zeit seines Lebens hat Einstein nach der einheitlichen Feldtheorie gesucht, einer Universalformel, die sämtliche Naturkräfte erklären könnte - allerdings auch die Entwicklung schrecklicher neuer Waffen ermöglichen würde. Einsteins Forschung auf diesem Gebiet blieb vergeblich - oder doch nicht? Kurz darauf merkt Swift, dass er verfolgt wird. Und er ahnt nun, dass die Zahlen, die Kleinmann ihm nannte, tatsächlich Hinweise auf die Einstein'sche Weltformel sind. Dank der Hilfe der gutaussehenden Physikerin Monique Reynolds gelingt es Swift zunächst, seine Verfolger abzuhängen. Aber nicht nur das FBI, sondern auch ein russischer Söldner, dessen Auftraggeber sich nicht zu erkennen geben, will die Formel mit aller Macht in seinen Besitz bringen. Und dazu ist ihm jedes Mittel recht ... Mark Alpert studierte Astrophysik und Literatur. Hauptberuflich arbeitet er als Redakteur des populären Wissenschaftsmagazins "Scientific American", wo er seinen Lesern komplizierte wissenschaftliche Theorien einfach und verständlich darstellt. Mit seinem ersten Wissenschafts-Thriller, "Die Würfel Gottes", feierte er ein grandioses Debüt. Mark Alpert lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen Kindern in Manhattan."
