9780099415923: The Sun Chemist

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.
