A string of renowned scientists have been found dead of lethal poisoning. The FBI has just one suspect, the brilliant toxicologist Dr. Christine Palmer. The doctor has an eccentric personality and classified access to the world’s most deadly experimental neurotoxins, but the FBI has no proof.

When the latest death occurs at a top-secret research facility near Santa Fe, forensic psychologist Dr. Sylvia Strange and her associate, counterterrorism expert Edmond Sweetheart are called in to link Palmer to the crime.

But Sylvia has doubts when she encounters the compelling doctor. And when it appears that her partner is withholding vital information from her, Sylvia no longer knows who to trust.  Is Christine palmer the narcissistic and ruthless killer the FBI suspects? Or is there another killer on the loose?

VALERIE PLAME WILSON, former CIA covert operative on the “Vanessa Pierson Espionage Series” books, BLOWBACK & BURNED and Sarah:
“My co-author is the wonderful and talented Sarah Lovett, successful author of the thriller series featuring Dr. Sylvia Strange. She has been a delight to work with and I feel fortunate to call her a friend.”
"I was lucky enough to spend a few days with a fairly new friend. Dr. Sylvia Strange - the protagonist in Sarah Lovett's novels.
Dark Alchemy is the author's fifth episode featuring the profiler Dr. Strange. I had already read the first two and then skipped to this one, but should have just kept going in sequence to keep up with the doings of the wonderful characters in this series.

Dr. Strange and her sometimes sidekick Sweetheart (yes, that's his name) team together this time to profile a serial murderer - one who is using neurotoxins. The technical jargon is too much for me to understand but is necessary to slide one into the story. This one, like Lovett's others, is tightly written with characters that could be your next door neighbors. The suspense is almost too much and kept me up late at night to discover the culprit.

Travel with Sylvia (I can call her that now that I know her so well) from New Mexico to London and back into a world of subterfuge, death, traitors and spies. I can't think of a better way to spend my time."
