In this gripping page-turner, 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 U.S. 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 bestselling authors.

Not what you expect, and YES! It’s GOOD!!! DON’T MISS IT! But personal level? Two nitpicks. I will openly admit I approached this book with a lot of scoffing and derision. The author of Twilight…writing a THRILLER? I mocked. A lot. So before I say anything else I can absolutely tell you the book changed my mind I expected to hate it. I have long been a critic of Meyer’s loose writing and weak heroines, so when the “tight thriller” statements started coming out I did laugh, but…that has turned out to be an accurate description of this book, and I absolutely would recommend it to anyone. Read it!!! DON’T MISS THIS BOOK. And for that reason, I would like to start with the things I was impressed with, which was a lot.

Just as great as I expected I am a 68 year old grandma. I have read all of Stephenie Meyer’s books. Every one has been a great read. The Chemist was terrific. I finished the book in two days. If I had not required sleep I would not have put it down. The excitement, action and character development were first class. This is not a teen book. Strictly adult and adult action. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Kick-Butt Lady Chemist – Loved it! Love this book!! Bought as a gift after i have read it previously. Love this book with a strong kick-butt woman as the lead. Great message for female power. Fun exciting new story line. Stephenie Meyer is always surprising me with new topics. Don’t pigeon hole her as the vampire lady because her other books are great! Love this, i hope they make a move one day. Great gift for any smart, independent girl, full of cool chemistry and kick butt action. Great combo of genres geeky/science/action/romance. Loved it!
