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 realises 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 specialised skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's best-selling authors.

So hard to put down a compelling read

What made the experience of listening to The Chemist the most enjoyable?

It was not only unexpected but totally original. I got into each character, no exceptions, and kept thinking this cannot get any more interesting or surprising and it did.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously I suppose the female chemist and her role was so compelling and she had it so together, was competent, quick thinking and skilled.

What about Ellen Archer’s performance did you like?

I reckon he did a great job, never lost my interest for one moment

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have loved to but actually it was nice to look forward to and oh did I feel empty when I had finished.

Any additional comments?

Held my attention and amazing characters

Any additional comments?

I loved this book. I am Stephenie Meyer fan and my favourite book is the Host. I was expecting this book to be the 2nd in the series (the seeker) but i'm not disappointed as this is a great book.

This book has no supernatural element to it but has three great characters that I couldn't get enough of. The lead role is female and she is a strong character who can look after her self from the very start of the book! There are so many great scenes where she kicks ass of strong male characters which is fab. There is of course a love story of course but it isn't the main focus of the story :)

I love the way Stephanie writes as the story flows well, very catchy and characters you feel for very quickly. Give it a go!

Twilight all grown up and really worth the read

I loved this audio it was well written and read. I am a massive fan of the twilight saga and simply read this book due to that but the Chemist is so much more than I expected and the suspense is so good at times its painful.

Great story but too much romance interfering.

Great storyline but too much time in the romance. When you buy one of these suspense thriller stories you tend not to look for too much romance. It kept stopping the flow of the story and I got bored. Take out the boring bed scenes and this would have been awesome.
