  1. Tim Symonds says:

    I would much appreciate a review of my latest Sherlock Holmes novel – based on a real event in Albert Einstein’s life.

    – for all who enjoy the classic Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

    First review:

    Sherlock Holmes And The Mystery of Einstein’s Daughter by Tim Symonds

    In late 1903 Einstein’s daughter ‘Lieserl’ disappears without trace in Serbia aged around 21 months. As Holmes exclaims in the Mystery of Einstein’s Daughter, “the most ruthless effort has been made by public officials, priests, monks, Einstein’s friends, followers, relatives and relatives-by-marriage to seek out and destroy every document with Lieserl’s name on it. The question is – why?”

    ‘Lieserl’s fate shadows the Einstein legend like some unsolved equation’ Scientist Frederic Golden Time Magazine
