Set in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire and featuring smart, ruggedly handsome science-teacher-cum-sleuth Will Buchanan, this outdoor mystery series features nonstop action and more plot twists than a mountain trail. When Will’s former girlfriend, Laurie, asks him to chaperone her seventeen-year-old niece, Erin, on an overnight hike to Mount Washington’s Zealand Falls, he promptly agrees in order to get back in her good graces. Erin is to meet her brother, Josh, who has been hiking the Appalachian Trail. But when Josh is found dead at the bottom of a cliff the next morning and Erin disappears, Will must solve the mystery as well as prove his own innocence—and survive the relentless mayhem that makes them, in heart-stopping mountain chase scenes, the quarry of an unlikely yet familiar killer.

Tom Eslick is the author of Tracked in the Whites and Snow Kill, the first two books in the White Mountains Mystery series.From Booklist:
As a favor, teacher Will Buchanan escorts Erin Wickham, his girlfriend Laurie's niece, to a lodge in the White Mountains, where Erin will meet her brother. After the brother falls to his death, Erin, a student at Will's school, accuses Will of rape and disappears. No one believes Will is innocent; he searches for Erin to clear his name and uncover the connection between Erin's disappearance and her brother's murder. This third Will Buchanan mystery sets a breakneck pace and never lets it slacken. Eslick combines realistic accounts of hiking and tracking with nonstop action, producing in the process a kind of Raiders of the Lost Ark in the North Woods. The only misstep is the characterization of Laurie, the village police chief and Will's love interest, whose stupidity is equaled only by her meanness. Fans of outdoor mysteries who can concentrate on the action and the autumnal New England scenery will find similarities here to the work of Nevada Barr. John Rowen
