Flap Tucker is just a little different. A Zen practitioner who has a reputation for finding things, he is soon on his way, not quite willingly, to the Georgia Backwoods. There he will find himself involved in the disappearance of a young girl, the ghost of another and some mighty strange occurrences and some eccentric Southern characters. All is not as it appears in these hills.

Fast, easy, written in a light hearted manner. n enjoyable series with an enjoyable lead characters.

ARC from Netgalley.

I would like to first say I like Flap Tucker and the fact that all the books by Phillip Depoy with the character Flap Tucker have the word “EASY” in the title.

Dally’s cousin and his pregnant wife see a little girl standing in the road and swerve to miss her. Then when they try to locate her to make sure she is ok there is no little girl to be found. Dally talks Flap into c ...more

Fey and unsatisfying

This book is not a 'mystery' in the classic sense. The 'detective' relies on visions and quasi-supernatural semi-ESP to 'solve' things. All in all it takes a lot more 'willing suspension of disbelief' then I'm prepared to give. Worse, it plays on stereotypes of mountain people and urbanites in a very weak effort at humor. I had a hard time finishing it.

Along about midnight on a dark road in the North Georgia mountains, Mustard and Sissy Abernathy are on their way to the hospital because Sissy is in labor and that baby just isn't going to wait much longer to be born. Then smack dab in the middle of the road they see the Little Girl of Lost Pines. Well, what do you think about that? It might change your mind to know the little girl died fifty years ago.

In this novel, Flap and Dally go to a northern Georgia mountain town to visit Dally's cousin who just had a brand new baby girl. Dally has a niece! The father of the new baby is named "Mustard" - it kind of sets the tone for the whole story
When they arrive, Flap and Dally join the search for a little girl who happens to be missing. Flap is a private detective who uses meditation to h

Free download. It was a nice mystery set in Georgia, with interesting characters. Reasonably realistic view of small-town Deep South, with an interesting story.
