“The Chemist” is Stephenie Meyer’s new book. She used to work for the U.S. Government, an expert in her field. She was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t have a name. Then, when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in one place or uses the same name for long. With her choices being rapidly whittled down she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of… “The Chemist” is available in large print, as a book on CD and in the Virtual Library.
