The Einstein Prophecy by Robert Masello

Book Cover ImageThe 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 1944, 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.
