Kineo Ablaze
 

Authored by Mr. William David Musser

For the Denton family, inheriting their father's parents' bed and breakfast cottage on Kineo in Moosehead Lake, Maine, was a blessing. From the moment they saw the majestic cliffs of Mount Kineo towering above the golf course from their cottage, they thought they had inherited paradise. On the boundary between the open wilderness of northern Maine and civilization to the south, it seemed the perfect place between two worlds to get away and heal from the recent death of Mr. Denton. What they didn't know was that the line between civilized and uncivilized isn't quite as clear as the line nature has drawn. Soon after their arrival, the secrets of the past begin to emerge, and the greed and inexplicable fires that had manifested throughout Kineo's mysterious history begins to repeat itself in a new cast of characters. As the intrigue rises, so too does the danger, and soon those that are willing to die to protect Kineo's secrets-and those willing to die to expose them-meet head-on. From the local inhabitants and Native Americans, to a class of university students and the Denton family themselves, nobody knows what will happen, who will survive, and whether Kineo's horrible secrets will ever be unleashed.

A classic in the action-thriller tradition, Kineo Ablaze delivers the goods with precision, white-knuckle intensity, and stunning prose that shimmers with the heat of untapped, primordial fear and rage. Set in the dichotomy of the claustrophobia of an island that is, conversely, full of natural beauty, wonder, and space, the brooding undercurrent of growing malevolence demonstrates William Musser's sizable talent for pacing and natural understanding of the human condition. At once a modern tale of healing our present and the tenacious, destructive hold the past can visit upon us, Kineo Ablaze is a dagger to the heart of an unspoken terror inside everyone who has ever dreamt of a bright future only to discover horrible secrets the past has brought to their door.
