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 student, a secretary, 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...

Reviews for Mr Einstein's Secretary

This novel is Lessons in Chemistry meets Matthew Reilly set in World War II. It's an historical fiction spy thriller epic, with some romance elements, centered around the life of fictional Hanna Fischer. This is Matthew's most ambitious novel to date - 'an epic' in every sense. After Matthew's massive 2022 - with the release of his global no.1 Netflix film INTERCEPTOR and the superhero novella COBALT BLUE - he is back with his first full-length novel since THE ONE IMPOSSIBLE LABYRINTH, and his first non-Jack West adult novel since THE GREAT ZOO OF CHINA. Matthew has a great history of breakout standalone hit novels, including GREAT ZOO and THE TOURNAMENT (the closest comparison title to this book).
