You might call Will Buchanan a Renaissance man-high school science teacher, avid hiker, sensitive lover, and six feet of rugged good looks, wit, intellect, and forest savvy. His beat is New Hampshire's fabulous White Mountains with their rushing waters, sun-dappled woods, and still, moonlit nights. This dramatic terrain is where Tom Eslick sets Deadly Kin, a mystery filled with breathless scenic beauty and taut suspense.

When Will's former girlfriend Laurie, sheriff of Saxton Mills, asks him to escort her seventeen-year-old niece Erin to an overnight hut at Zealand Falls, Will promptly agrees-for, try as he may, he cannot forget Laurie. There the lovely young Erin is to meet up with her brother, Josh, who is hiking the Appalachian Trail. Erin's hostility disturbs Will-but even more disturbing is the passionate embrace between her and her brother. And when Josh mysteriously falls to his death that night, Will, Laurie, and Erin are thrown into a tangled web of family relations and relentless mayhem that makes them, in heart-stopping mountain chase scenes, the quarry of an unlikely-yet familiar-killer.
