Flap Tucker, a Zen private eye with a knack for finding missing things, goes to the eerie town of Lost Pines to help find a young girl that has gone missing. He soon discovers that this isn't the first little girl to vanish into the Appalacian backwoods. 50 years ago another young girl disappeared & was never found. The town folks say her ghost can still be seen wandering the Black Pine Mountains, but that is all they will say. Flap suspects all isn't as it seems.
