Biddeford, United States - April 16, 2019 /PressCable/ —

The chemist leaves no evidence as he kidnaps his victims. No one has ever seen him, heard his voice, or felt the touch of his hand… and lived to tell the tale.

Janson Mancheski’s heart-pounding crime thriller series, The Chemist Series, relaunches on Amazon on April 30th. Book 1 is The Chemist, book 2 is Trail of Evil, and book 3 is Mask of Bone. Though the books can be read as standalone novels or in any order, it is highly recommended to read them in order for the best reading experience.

This chilling crime series sheds light on sex trafficking which is rampant in the USA, and a homicide investigator’s action-packed search for the meticulous killer, The Chemist.

The Chemist blends into everyday life. Like a chameleon, he arouses no suspicion. He is charming, intelligent, friendly and a sociopath. Having created a liquid sedative/fentanyl cocktail that allows him to kidnap any victim he chooses, day or night, leaving no trace or clues behind, he begins his abduction spree. Thus the problems begin for homicide investigator Cale Van Waring, who heads up the Special Crimes Unit for the Green Bay PD. Three female victims have already vanished, with one headless body recovered from Lake Michigan. There are no suspects, no crime scene, no witnesses.

Now a new missing victim’s MO matches the headless-body case. Theories range from cults to witchcraft covens to a serial killer. Yet with no clues or evidence, Cale must face the hard facts: how do you catch a killer who leaves no trace? How do you stop a clever murderer, who’s intent on committing the perfect crime?

Following a spotty trail, Cale has a theory. But with his boss on his back, and his girlfriend (Maggie) giving him ultimatums, can he stop a cold-blooded killer before he strikes again? Or does the Chemist have a more sinister plot in mind? Cale better figure it out, before another headless body floats up out of the lake.

The Chemist feature film is being optioned by Voyage Media Productions.

NEW YORK — He seemed almost like he was out of Central Casting — tall and patrician, with a cultivated above-the-fray presence. And in fact, former Manhattan District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau inspired some television casting of his own, as the model for the avuncular character of prosecutor Adam Schiff, played by actor Steven Hill on the long-running television series, "Law and Order." "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf called Morgenthau "the greatest district attorney in the history of New York." Morgenthau, who died Sunday at 99, just 10 days before turning 100, spent nearly half his life jailing criminals...
