When Craig Dirgo teamed up with grandmaster of adventure Clive Cussler, the result was the sensational #1 bestseller The Sea Hunters. Their next blockbuster was the New York Times bestseller, Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt Revealed. Now, Dirgo makes his fiction debut with this brilliantly conceived tale that buries the atomic age and spawns a new superweapon as earth-shattering as it is ingenious.
Albert Einstein referred to it as the Unified Field Theory. It was his obsession, more important than Relativity and more difficult to prove. But on August 2, 1945, he did just that. Days later, the bombs dropped. Einstein knew what would happen if his Unified Field Theory was combined with his Theory of Relativity -- and the consequences were too horrifying to contemplate. In despair, the physicist decided that the Unified Field Theory must never be shared. He would carry this secret to the grave. And for half a century, the devastating truth remained buried.
Sometimes John Taft wished the world was as simple as it had been in the 1940s. Yet the last days of the millennium proved to be a very different place. Allegiances changed daily, and an antiterrorist operative like Taft had to do everything he could to keep his sights on the correct targets. Even if he was one of the best.
But nothing has prepared Taft for his next assignment. While unnatural disasters threaten the world's oil supplies and the Middle East teeters on the brink of war, the Chinese have made a chilling discovery. Somehow, they have unearthed the dormant formula devised by the 20th century's most brilliant mind. On the eve of the People's Republic's 50th anniversary, the imperialistic nation is on the threshold of unraveling the mystery of Einstein's fabled Unified Field Theory, and will soon possess a weapon more devastating than any nuclear arsenal. And unless something is done very soon, what's left of the United States will be on the bottom rung of a new world order.
Worldwide in its scope, frightening in its impact, and thrilling to the last page, The Einstein Papers marks the fiction debut of Craig Dirgo, a writer with many weapons at his command: the realism of Clancy, the slam-bang action of Cussler, and the lightning talent to deliver an epic thriller that is all his own. The Einstein Papers will blow you away.
Über den Autor: Craig Dirgo is the best-selling author of The Einstein Papers, The Tesla Documents, and Gunnison Grit. He also co-authored several books with the masterful Clive Cussler including The Sea Hunters I and II, Golden Buddha and Sacred Stone - all New York Times best sellers. One of six children of an Air Force Colonel, Dirgo grew up on air bases in the United States and England before finally settling in Colorado. A part-time job washing and waxing classic cars led to meeting Clive Cussler, acclaimed author and founder of NUMA National Underwater and Marine Agency, a non-profit historical research foundation. When an opportunity arose to co-author a book about NUMA, Cussler asked Dirgo to take on the task. The result was the New York Times best seller, The Sea Hunters. This was followed by Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt Revealed and The Sea Hunters II. While working with Cussler, Dirgo also began writing on his own and soon thereafter published his first John Taft adventure, The Einstein Papers. Taking some time away from ocean adventures and writing, Dirgo formed several small businesses, moved back to the mountains he loves and concentrated on skiing and hiking. In 2010-11, he skied 115 days thus achieving a lifelong goal of skiing more than 100 days in a season. In 2012 Dirgo published his first eBook novel, Gunnison Grit, a work of historical fiction set in Gunnison County, Colorado. He followed this work with re-issues in electronic format of The Einstein Papers and The Tesla Documents (originally published in paperback under the title Tremor.) Dirgo has several new projects on the drawing board, including a new John Taft action/adventure. Dirgo lives in The Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
