The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As a former nerdy ex-science/biology/chemistry teacher, it’s always fun to read about the underdog who ultimately breaks up the plot to overthrow the government! This story will keep you guessing and turning pages as our heroine, Alex, switches from one pseudonym to the next, hides under the radar or disappears when the hunters get too close, only to reappear in their backyards. As always in good thriller fiction, there is the unlikely alliance, in this case, in which Alex teams up with the ever nerdy science teacher Daniel and his…(oops, don’t give it away)… who’s an ex-CIA guy! The fun part of all of this is how a nerdy professional government interrogator manages to survive numerous attempts on her life, set booby traps, sleep in a gas mask, and carry an array of deadly syringes, rings, and earrings without killing either herself or her few friends as she goes after the bad guys. This is not the usual shoot-em-up run through the hail of bullets kind of novel. Our young lady is smart, deadly and focused on her one task of remaining alive long enough to get back at the people who are betraying our government. Author Meyer has done an outstanding job of writing, researching her subject’s weapons and the various methodologies behind getting the truth out of someone through psychological and chemical means rather than the old brute force we so often see and hear about in fiction and real life. A masterful piece of work!
