Hunting through the past.
Black Oak Security is a crack team of private investigators led by brilliant, enigmatic Ethan Proctor. From everyday illegal activities to encounters of a more questionable kind, Proctor has seen it all. Now, summoned to England to investigate an ongoing missing person case, Proctor stumbles upon a legendary forest - and a specter who dwells there ...
Haunted in the present.
The hamlet of Pludbury, England, is a forgotten village, a farming community dating back to the War of the Roses. It was also the home of Sir Jarred Battle, am ambitious lord who was executed during England's famous feud. His ghost is purported to roam the Battle Wood, granting favors to the townsfolk - in exchange for their souls.
The people of Pludbury are rather protective of their spirit, and although he'd like nothing more than to forget the ghost tales, Proctor soon suspects Sir Jarred Battle may be the key to his case - or the very Devil himself...

Much darker than his Quest For The White Duck trilogy, but even more imaginative. Evidently this one is part of the Black Oak Security series, that's bad for my pocketbook because now I want more. Eerie and creepy, the publisher's blurb only hints at the goings on, and no spoilers here. If this sounds like your kind of read, you won't be disappointed!
Arthur Flavell does a really great job!
