Publisher's Summary

The most virulent weapon of mass destruction will be unleashed upon the world, but Delta Force veteran Daniel Strong isn't about to let that happen. Recalled from the depths of drug addiction and depression, Danny is the last chance for the CIA to stop an auction in New York where powerful weapons dealers are to bid for the right to proliferate a deadly neurotoxin. The road to finding the auction's location leads directly to the weapon's creator: a devil in Tory Burch flats and heroin addict who has committed the chemical compound to memory. Yet Danny isn't the only one chasing her. He must protect her from a sadistic Palestinian terrorist known only as Sabir, who wants to use the weapon to destroy Israel and will do anything--including torture--to get it. Danny must walk a fine line to control his obsession to resolve a dark secret from his past and his feelings for the chemist that could compromise the operation's objective--before it's too late.

Good thriller. Can use some editing.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listened to the book in small portions at a time, so I was never bored of the book. But not sure what that says about a thriller book. I wish it had a faster pace and better tension buildup. IMO, it lacked edge-of-the-seat urgency to it and thus it was easy to put it down everyday after listening for half hour or one hour.

The story is set in New York and it takes us to several of the landmarks. But those are used just as background props. I wish they were described in more details and could pain a picture of the scene.


Do you think The Chemist needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I think book 2 will start with a different story.


Any additional comments?

I voluntarily received this copy for free from the author / narrator / publisher and am leaving an unbiased review.

Kept my attention!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Chemist to be better than the print version?

I enjoy audio because I can still work and listen at the same time.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chemist?

When Kate gets killed with the chemical. I didn't see that coming.


Which scene was your favorite?

When Brooke tries to open her bank account and it is cancelled!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It is sad that the world is full of greed and lack of caring for others.

Too much language. I don't think it was rated L.
