Easy as One, Two, Three by Phillip DePoy
The spirit is forever doomed to wander the paths of Black Pine Mountain where she vanished more than fifty years ago. Now another little girl has gone missing, leaving nothing behind but a trail of collective guilt, unanswered questions and too many coincidences. Only a certain out-of-towner, a Zen private eye with a penchant for French wine, can unravel the truth: Flap Tucker is back.
Together, he and beautiful nightclub owner Dalliance Oglethorple pledge to find the missing girl before she spends another night in the fast-thickening snow. However, in a town where the locals hide dark secrets and eye outsiders with suspicion, he is met with hostility. Following a twisted trail through the shadowy forests of the mountain, the town’s haunted past and whispered legends become more real than ever. Only Flap and his special talents are the little girl’s last hope against a ghost’s final revenge…
