Shelfari edited the description of The Sun Chemist Saturday, October 31, 2009.
'Beyond question the book of the year' - "Spectator". Chaim Weizmann was a great man, one of the founders of modern Israel. He was also a chemist of international repute. His work in the thirties led him to a cheap way of synthesising oil. But politics took over and it seemed Weizmann had died without passing on his revolutionary knowledge. In the oil-starved seventies, it falls to Igor Druyanov to reconstruct that magic formula. And the chase is on, for the news will overturn the Middle East ...Tense, intelligent and stylish, "The Sun Chemist" is gripping spy thriller from a true master of the genre.
