New York — “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer’s next novel is a thriller, without vampires.
Little, Brown and Co. announced Tuesday that “The Chemist” will be published Nov. 15. The company says the book features a former government agent living underground and forced to “take one more case to clear her name and save her life.”
“The Chemist” is Meyer’s second book for adults. In 2008, she wrote “The Host.”
Meyer’s “Twilight” books have sold more than 150 million copies and were made into a blockbuster film series starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
In a statement released Tuesday, Meyer called her new book a union of “romantic sensibilities” and her “obsession with Jason Bourne/Aaron Cross.”
