Juliana Fortis is dead; at least, that’s what she wants the people searching for her to think. She spends her days making wide circles around her routines to throw off trackers, and she spends her nights sleeping in a gas mask just in case an intruder sets off one of her booby traps. She plans for any and every outcome of a given situation: that is the only way to keep breathing when you’re being hunted.
What Juliana (or Alex, for now) doesn’t plan for, however, is the email from her governmental ex-employer that changes everything. Her old boss, the very man that wants her dead, offers Alex a deal: if she will use her very special skill set one more time to help prevent a worldwide catastrophe, the agency will stop looking for her.
Alex tentatively embarks on her new assignment, but learns quickly that not everything is what it seems. In the midst of the most dangerous mission of her life, she finds herself falling for the man she is supposed to stop, and no amount of planning could have prepared her for the events that follow.
Meyer has come through once again with a story so captivating that you won’t want to put it down. Lovers of espionage and romance alike will tear through the pages of The Chemist.
