The Case of Einstein's Violin

William L. Sullivan's light-hearted mystery novel is just the book to take on vacation. In the story, an Oregon woman inherits Albert Einstein's violin case, sells it on eBay, and suddenly finds herself dodging international spies.  A tip that her long-dead father may be alive sends her racing through Europe to discover her family's past -- and a lost formula for quantum gravity.

You'll learn a bit about Einstein along the way because the physics concepts in the book have been vetted by Sullivan's son, an astrophysicist with a PhD from CalTech.  You'll also follow the characters on a travel adventure from the Greek islands and the Italian Alps to the small town in Germany where Einstein was born.
