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 bestselling authors.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Engrossing…A terrific ride…Consistently fast-paced fun.”

    USA Today

  • “It’s nice to see a heroine whose greatest asset is her brain, one who can fell brawny hit men with tiny syringes and weaponized jewelry. Meyer is still a skilled pace-setter, and The Chemist‘s 518-pages fly by.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “A thriller about a kick-ass scientist and ex-government agent on the run.”

    Cosmopolitan

  • "[Meyer has] an unusual ability to turn genres inside out…[and] love gives the adventure meaning, rather than just being a subplot off to the side.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Here, an exciting heroine (see: female Jason Bourne) knows too much, is a threat, and has one last chance to clear her name.”

    Marie Claire

  • “Archer’s urgent tone keeps listeners on high alert, and torture scenes have near physical impact. In Archer’s narration, Alex’s clipped tone and practical personality mix realistically with her nascent feelings of hope and wonder. And 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. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
