Praise for Mercury's Rise... "Mercury is poison, but Inez
Stannert's latest adventure is pure gold." -Sarah Smith
Agatha-winning author of The Other Side of Dark It's 1880, and Inez
Stannert is traveling to the fashionable summer retreat of Manitou
for a reunion with her son, now a toddler in the care of her
sister. Suddenly a fellow passenger, Edward Pace, grows faint,
swigs some medicine, and dies under their horrified gaze. Pace's
widow begs Inez to investigate. Soon Inez uncovers the shady side
of spa tourism including spurious claims, profiteering, and medical
practitioners who kindle false hopes in the desperate and dying.
Then Inez's husband reappears after a year -and -a -half's
unexplained absence. Now she must fight to hold on to her child and
the life she has built for herself.... Ann Parker is a science
writer by day, and lives in the San Francisco Bay area
