Publisher's Summary

They are called designer drugs, and they're worse than lethal--they're legal. A beautiful undercover agent and her partner are brutally murdered in Southern California. A special task force of highly trained police officers go underground to find out why. What they discover is a billion-dollar criminal conspiracy--and an elusive mastermind known as the Alchemist. The Alchemist is a respected chemist who has conjured up a substance worth its weight in gold: a synthetic "designer" drug as potent as cocaine or heroin and twice as dangerous--because its unique chemical formula is perfectly legal! Caught in the crossfire between a desperate Mafia chief and two ruthless drug lords, the task force must step outside the law to crush the impending crime war, risking being lured so far out from behind the protection of their badges that there is no turning back.

Great book good twists

Great book, good characters and an interesting plot. The book may have been written a while back but this all still happens now I guess! the book and plot seem modern until you realise there are no cell phones etc mentioned. RC Bray brilliant as usual with an interesting array of voices. Liked the voice he put on the character Rainbow.

Starts badly and gets worse

What would have made The Alchemist better?

The story promised a high tech chemical underworld story. I gave an old fashioned "American Cop" story. One to leave on the shelf 1/10

Would you ever listen to anything by Ken Goddard again?
