Matthew Reilly is the internationally bestselling author of the Scarecrow series, the Jack West series and numerous standalone novels. You can also meet him on the podcast. We have three copies of his latest book Mr Einstein’s Secretary to give away. It’s a gripping story that follows a young woman swept through some of history's most perilous eras. Here’s the blurb:
All Hanna Fischer ever wanted to do was to study physics under the great Albert Einstein.
But when, as a teenager in 1919, her life is suddenly turned upside-down, she is catapulted into a new and extraordinary life – as a secretary, a scientist, a sister and a spy.
From racist gangs in Berlin to gangsters in New York City, Nazis in the 1930s and Hitler's inner circle during the Second World War, Hanna will encounter some of history's greatest minds and most terrible moments, all while desperately trying to stay alive.
She is a most unique secretary and she will work for many bosses – from shrewd businessmen to vile Nazis, to the greatest boss of them all, Mr Albert Einstein…
Spanning forty years, this is the thrilling tale of a young woman propelled through history's most dangerous times. But read it carefully, because all may not be as it seems…
