Product description

About the Author

Irving Belateche is an author, screenwriter, and adjunct professor at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts. He's written screenplays for Paramount Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Warner Bros., and other studios. He's worked with producers Lawrence Bender (Pulp Fiction), Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm), and Joel Silver (The Matrix) as well as directors Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump) and Roland Emmerich (Independence Day). Belateche adapted the first Hugo award winner, The Demolished Man, by Alfred Bester, for Paramount and producer Robert Evans (Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby). His first novel, "Under An Orange Sun, Some Days Are Blue," a bestseller on Amazon, was based on his journey as a Hollywood screenwriter after the loss of his daughter. It's a deeply moving and inspirational story that offers unique insights on how to face and conquer life's greatest challenges. His second novel "H2O," which was the #1 science fiction novel in Amazon's Kindle store, is a riveting thriller that takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where knowledge has disappeared and curiosity will get you killed. Belateche lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son.

I have great admiration for anyone who can write a good time travel story, and deal realistically with the mind-twisting paradox's involved. To be able to do that and keep it accessible and readable for people who aren't either physics professors or Time Lords, that is extremely impressive. This story achieves that, and what's more it's a well paced, well structured and engrossing read. The author has clearly given a lot of thought to how time travel might work, and the consequences of it. The result is one of the best stories in this genre that I've yet come across.

As the other review says. This book is very well written and the story moves along at a steady (fast) pace throughout. It does not deal in the mechanics of time travel as such. This is a good thing as it leaves more room for the great story. This is the thinking man's Action adventure novel.

The story is written in a curious style. Just when you think you have the measure of it it changes. A little like the result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 9 Mar. 2014
By Jason Grey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow! Just finished it. It's a great ride, full of twists and turns and surprises. It's well written and sweeps you up into the mystery immediately. I also loved that the main character was smart and relentless. I don't want to post any spoilers, but I also thought it had a unique take on time travel. That was refreshing. Definitely a fantastic read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Surprisingly Entertaining Find 24 May 2014
By Parsons Family - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Okay, I will confess. I picked this one up because it was offered at 99 cents. I thought it might be worth trying. What I found was an engaging mix of history, plausible conjecture, and interesting action. I had trouble putting the book down and getting on with my life.

In my greed, looking for cheaper books on Kindle, I have to wade through lots of typos, poor spelling, and horrendous grammar. This book has none of those. It is a tight, well-written book with absolutely no distracting editing errors. The writing style kept me in the story, the characters were interesting and believable, and I found myself enjoying the book more than I ever would have imagined.

If I had any criticism, it would be that I thought it ended a little too abruptly, and would have liked to have known more in the "wrap-up." But, knowing what I know now, if I had it to do all over again, I would buy the book, and I would be willing to pay more than 99 cents.

Any other comments would be "spoilers," and I don't want to do that. If you are reading this, I want you to buy the book. I have never met the author, have no personal interest in publicizing this book, and will get no remuneration from recommending it. I just like sharing something I enjoyed this much.

Great book and great job!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Thriller 15 April 2014
By Martha Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Einstein's Secret is the best thriller to come down the pike in a long, long time. I really enjoyed it. The book delivered on every level. There were so many great twists and turns that I kept thinking the author couldn't top that one and then he did! The book was well written. It was literary, but also easy to read. The story has a great science fiction hook, but it's an incredible thriller at its heart. I highly recommend you check out this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A clever, unique and smartly written thriller 4 May 2014
By Beverly Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I saw the name "Einstein" my curiosity was piqued. The author successfully managed to take one of my favorite topics- history and then mix it nicely in with sci-fiction (time travel).

That was great but then the author goes a step further and adds in mystery. This created an unquestionable home run of a read.

The characters were all very solidly created and the plot was well thought out.

The story was a different one - Jacob had a hunch that Einstein had made a deathbed confession.

This hunch leads to a search and the book unfolds to tell a great story.

The attention to detail and unique plot made Einstein's Secret a fun and fast read with a unique and fresh take on time travel.

The way time travel was used felt so authentic that it turned the book into a realistic thriller with a fast paced energy that wouldn't let up.

I will be recommending this one to several of my friends. I think this is one that may be headed to the best seller list.

Excellent read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing--Loved this book! 2 May 2014
By Andrew Myers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Einstein's Secret was incredibly original and totally captivating. I couldn't put it down. The story is full of surprises and twists that you don't see coming. It reads like a bestselling thriller combined with a literary touch. Jacob Morgan, the main character, is sure Einstein made a deathbed confession, but no one believes him. When he finds proof that he might be right and follows up on it, his entire world is thrown into chaos. A kind of chaos that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Belateche, the author, does an incredible job of making you feel the same loss of control that Jacob feels, so you end up wanting answers as desperately as Jacob does. One of the things that happens about halfway through blew me away. I wasn't expecting it all, but it went perfectly with the story. I think that both science fiction readers and thriller/mystery readers will love this book.
