From the neon of Atlanta to the Georgia seacoast, he's searching for a killer, a motive...and his past. On the marshy shores of the Georgia coast, the locals tell a story - of a woman who appeared from the sea, and of two gentle twin brothers who would do anything for her. But now a man is dead, the twins are missing, and only a meditating private eye from Atlanta can unravel the truth... His name is Flap Tucker. A man with a gift for visualization and the courage to go where his mind leads him, Flap has been hired by the beautiful nightclub owner Dalliance Oglethorpe to go deep into rural Georgia, where a banker has been murdered. The man's wife--a woman so shrouded in mystery that some believe she is a spirit - and a pair of twin brothers named Peachy and Maytag are wanted in the crime.
