Publisher's Summary

In this gripping thriller, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.

She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.

Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.

In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's best-selling authors.

What the Critics Say

"Even with Archer's outstanding portrayal of Alex, secondary characters Kevin and Val still steal all their scenes, thanks to Archer's memorable voices. Pack your go bag and enter Meyer's breathless romantic suspense." (AudioFile)

    "This woman can write!!!!"

    I was hooked on Twilight (the saga) and still listen to it occasionally; likewise with The Host. I've read everything she's written and only (really) disliked her role-reversed version of Twilight. I (really) enjoyed the partial draft of Midnight Sun and still pray she will finish it. It's been so long since she's published something new that I had my doubts that she could maintain what I consider high-quality storytelling. Well, I wonder no longer.

    I now declare Ms. Meyer's foray into the suspense/thriller genre a major success. Her writing style changes to match what she's writing about. Also, just in case you are wondering, she can write the drama with hard-hitting prose and still not use vulgar rhetoric or other four-letter words to make her point.

    I really liked most of the characters, especially our heroine who didn't need protection but rather had all the street smarts to keep others in her orbit protected, well, most of them.

    I'll be listening to this one at least two more times. I highly recommend this book and this author. Don't think for one minute that any of Twilight or The Host appears in this intense novel. Check it out for yourself.

    "Stephenie Meyer has done it again!!!"

    Loved the book. excellent read.
    the part that got me was when one of them got captured and what took plqce after.
    Steph has captured me with this book the same way she did with Twilight and The Host.
    keep them coming Steph.

    "Solid science/spy/political thriller!"

    Great premise! A scientist (let's call her Alex) developing interrogation drugs, techniques and procedures gets burned by her agency and goes on the lamb, only to be recruited for one more job. Things go mostly okay until she realizes the man she is interrogating isn't who they said he was. Mayhem and physical injuries follow cause an unlikely trio seeking justice against their leaders with their own interests above their responsibilities and in furtherance of a secret political agenda. Sign on with an agency with no name and cheer for Alex and her new "partners."

    "Outstanding!!!"

    I am not a fan of the twilight series--but I loved the Host--one of my top 10 of all time. The Chemist was not what I expected--it was so much better. I will revisit this book. I found myself willing to give up some sleep to listen to a bit more. I love my sleep so that's a high compliment. I highly recommend. Einstein is my favorite character.

    "Another great book from Stephenie Meyer"

    I've read all of Stephenie Meyer's works and it's been wonderful to see her talent grow over the years. The Chemist was excellently written with well developed characters and a rivoting plot. I couldn't put it down, listening on Audible while I was working and then reading through the night to finish.

    "First off. I adore Mrs Meyers"

    I quickly and excitingly purchased this book. It had S. Meyers name on it. I absolutely love ALL her writing. All before this book. The audio performance was awesome. But nothing could help the very poor story, Shallow characters, unrealistic approach to love at first glance and failed attempt at action. If this becomes a series. O help us. I like spy and conspiracy and sexual tension. But this book seems rushed at best. Not a good one.
