What happens when world-class science meets creative writing, with a backdrop of infamous European history?
It sounds like an unlikely combination but in the case of Plymouth University Professor Richard Handy, it sparked the basis of his historical fiction novel – a thriller called The Reich Device.
Set between the wars in 1930s Germany, the book’s plot is based around fictitious Professor Gustav Mayer as he makes the monumental discovery of a new technology a century ahead of its time. But his secret is not safe, the world is not safe and the reader watches events unfold as the Nazis rise to power.
Richard will talk about the history of the science and technology behind his recently published novel.
Books for signing will be on sale at this event.
