ChemistBestselling author of the Twilight saga, Stephenie Meyer, will release her first thriller, The Chemist, on November 15, 2016.

Of the book, Stephenie Meyer said:

The Chemist is the love child created from the union of my romantic sensibilities and my obsession with Jason Bourne/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.”

What we know about the book so far:

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 in-formation 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 her-self 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.

Stephenie MeyerEditMeyer is best known for her young adult Twilight series which centred around vampire Edward Cullen and his love interest Bella Swan, a human. They were later turned into films, grossing $1.4 billion in North America alone. The bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey series began as Twilight fan fiction.

Last year Meyer published Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, a special 10th Anniversary edition. Here she swapped the genders of the Edward and Bella after criticism that her original female protagonist was too meek.

The Chemist will be Meyer’s second adult novel; The Host was her first, an alien-invasion story. Nine million copies of this book sold in comparison to the 155 million of the Twilight saga.
