Chasing Mercury is a Romance-Suspense-Saga about “love in the time of mercury poisoning.” A Black ballerina and a whistleblower Powwow dancer meet in the Montreal Airport. They are both scheduled to perform in Berlin. During a long lay over in Zurich, he stuns her by depositing many hundreds of thousands of dollars into his Swiss bank account, to which he adds her name with no true explanation. Then he disappears. Is she an accomplice or is this just love in the time of mercury poisoning?
Chasing Mercury is a soaring cross cultural, international romance were the lovers and their families struggle for human and environmental rights against seemingly insurmountable odds. The novel honors the 2017 ratification of the United Nations Minamata Convention on Mercury. Chasing Mercury is the first of a series of three books.
Chasing Mercury by September Williams is an interesting yet environmental tale. Romance, mystery, and intrigue are woven onto these pages. Both protagonists share some commonalities but there’s still that gapping hole where trust seems to sink away…
September Williams can indeed write well. The story caught my attention and held it until the end. I was left wondering what’s next in this series. Poor, underprivileged, and a minority, these characters make the pages turn. Leading from sweet to dangerous situations, readers like myself will be hooked. Overall, it was very good.
