The most virulent weapon of mass destruction will be unleashed upon the world, but Delta Force veteran Daniel Strong isn’t about to let that happen. Recalled from the depths of drug addiction and depression, Danny is the last chance for the CIA to stop an auction in New York where powerful weapons dealers are to bid for the right to proliferate a deadly neurotoxin. The road to finding the auction’s location leads directly to the weapon’s creator: a devil in Tory Burch flats and heroin addict who has committed the chemical compound to memory. Yet Danny isn’t the only one chasing her. He must protect her from a sadistic Palestinian terrorist known only as Sabir, who wants to use the weapon to destroy Israel and will do anything–including torture–to get it. Danny must walk a fine line to control his obsession to resolve a dark secret from his past and his feelings for the chemist that could compromise the operation’s objective–before it’s too late.
The Chemist is a thrilling, exciting novel that captivated me from the very beginning. Never once did I get bored reading this book, I found it to be enjoyable the whole way through and this is thanks to the novels riveting plot, wonderfully created characters who are believable and exceptional writing, all thanks to the novels wonderful author Alan J. Field.
The Chemist focused on the protagonist of the novel who is a chemist who is addicted to drugs. The drug-addicted chemist has created a deadly neurotoxin which threatens humanity if it falls into terrorist hands. This is where we meet an ex-CIA agent, Daniel Strong. Strong himself is a former drug addict and so he sympathizes with the chemist’s drug addiction and soon he is tasked with helping to protect her as well as to prevent the deadly neurotoxin to be released into the hands of deadly terrorists who intend to use the toxin for harm.
What follows is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that will shock, enthrall and entertain you the whole way through! I found this book to be incredibly enjoyable, it was a lot of fun actually and made for a quick, fun, easy read that encompasses everything I love about thrillers. It has espionage, special operations, and many action-packed scenes that played out like a movie in my head. I adored the plot twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat, this is how a thriller should be! The plot should be unpredictable, frightening, thrilling and The Chemist certainly is all these things and so much more. I have to say also that the psychology aspect in this novel was brilliant. I have studied forensic psychology and I adored the hints at this within the book. Forensic psychology is the psychology of the mind, people get it confused with forensics but rather it is criminal profiling, it the study of humans and their crimes, why they do what they do, what motivated them and this book talks about motivation a little and it made for a fascinating read!
