First edition. Signed by the author on a tipped-in page. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. In Stephanie Meyer's first adult thriller a retired female assassin discovers that she has been targeted by her ex-bosses and her only way of getting out may be to go back in. 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. In The Chemist Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set.
