Stephenie Meyer has announced that she is launching a new series that has a Bourne Series feel to it. She is also launching a new website. Check out the details below.
Reagan Arthur, senior vice president and publisher of Little, Brown and Company, announced today the publication of THE CHEMIST, mega-bestselling author Stephenie Meyer’s first thriller. The worldwide English-language release of the book is set for November 15, 2016.
Stephenie Meyer said: “THE CHEMIST is the love child created from the union of my romantic sensibilities and my obsession with Jason Bourne and Aaron Cross. I very much enjoyed spending time with a different kind of action hero, one whose primary weapon isn’t a gun or a knife or bulging muscles, but rather her brain.”
Reagan Arthur said: “Stephenie Meyer’s considerable storytelling talents have made her one of the most beloved, bestselling authors in the world. Those talents are on full display in THE CHEMIST, and we are over the moon that she’s returned to the world of adult fiction with this exciting, edge-of-your-seat thriller.”
About the book:
In this gripping page-turner, 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 U.S. 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.
