Hating what she did gave her the power to do it best
Imagine: an agent, employed by the United States government, brimming with its darkest possible secrets. Her department’s work is so sensitive, so clandestine, it bears no name. Known to almost only herself, she is the top expert in a very specialised field.
Imagine that they have decided that she - and everything she knows - is a liability.
The only other person she trusted is dead. Now their attention has turned to her: rarely staying in the same place, or using the same name for long, she knows that her time is running out. When her former handler offers a means of escape, she cannot possibly know that what she learns only makes her situation yet more dangerous. And when she finds herself falling for a man whose very presence makes that risk a certainty, she understands that their salvation are the very skills only she can control.
After a writing hiatus of some six years, the global phenomenon that is Stephanie Meyer returns with her utterly compelling new thriller The Chemist.
From the imagination that sculpted the universe of Twilight and introduced the spellbinding concept that was The Host, Stephanie Meyer now presents her first adult novel proper – the chilling and all-too possible world of The Chemist.
