Practicing Buddhist and retired forensic pathologist Bodhi King seeks peace. Unfortunately, death keeps finding him.

After solving a series of unexplained deaths and exposing a sordid political scandal, Bodhi retreated from the limelight. Permanently, he thought. But now he's called out of early retirement to help investigate a death cluster on a private island in the Florida Keys.

Healthy residents of a ritzy assisted living facility are dying in the middle of the night ... their faces frozen in terror.

Bodhi arrives on Golden Island to find a community gripped by fear. And beneath the surface, conflict simmers, threatening to boil over. The charismatic leader of the Golden Island Church, the dying Cuban-Americans, and the local Catholic priest all have secrets to protect.

It's up to Bodhi to bring the truth to light ... before another resident dies.

Dark Path is the first book in an intriguing, engrossing new forensic thriller series by USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller. Lonely Path (Book 2), Hidden Path (Book 3), and Twisted Path (Book 4) are available now!

In college, she majored in English literature with concentrations in creative writing poetry and medieval literature and was STUNNED, upon graduation, to learn that there's not exactly a job market for such a degree. After working as an editor for several years, Melissa returned to school to earn a law degree. She was that annoying girl who loved class and always raised her hand. She's clerked for a federal judge, worked for major international law firms, and started a two-person law firm with her lawyer husband.

I liked the Bodhi King lead, and I'm aware that people can be "scared to death ", but I was never convinced that any of the victims believed strongly enough in santeria and its dark equivalent to die from seeing a doll. Just didn't. Especially the elderly retired female attorney!

I received an eARC of this book with a request that I write an honest review. I am a fan of Ms Miller and her Sasha McCandless series. Bodhi King is very different than Sasha. He's laid back and always calm. at least on the outside. He got a request from a Coroner in the Florida Keys to come and investigate some strange deaths.People were dying with no outward signs of any kind of trauma except for a face of terror in death. His investigative measures start off in normal fashion but soon he has an idea about what is happening.Ms Miller weaves a story that has a strong bearing of truth. The action is steady, the characters are nicely defined and this left me with a desire to read more stories of Dr Bodhi King (which is the Hallmark of a good author).

Bodhi is a very likable character and I will definitely look for more stories where he plays a lead.

Many twists and turns and really had no idea what was causing the deaths of the people. I've read other material of people dying from fear but not for gain. Would like to read a few more of Melissa Millers ' books.

Using facts that are not common knowledge to many people, you find yourself in a difficult mystery to solve. Good luck.

Enjoyed this spin-off of the Sasha McCandless series. This book has Bodhi consulting on another death cluster at a retirement home on a private island. The chapters alternate between the viewpoints of Bodhi, the Pastor of the church on the island, staff at the retirement home and a few others. This book explores aspects of different religions, and Bodhi has a calm and logical way of looking at things, all of which is interesting to read.

DARK PATH by Melissa Miller. Book 1 in."Bodhi King" series Cubanos. are dying, suddenly, with fear on their faces. A call from the ME in Florida Keys wanting Bodhi once again. The media and all by solving, cost him a job he loved. Bodhi sought solitude, in remote locations now. The puzzle intrigued him, but not enough to go back. His mind was quiet, but he was jumpy, a decision needed to be made. This was an intriguing, gripping story, that once started had to finish. Dealing with the church, a charismatic pastor, offering you a place, with rewards. The older people, often were catholic and believed in oil and gold candles. Readers will be fascinated with this new series. Great, to know that the next book will be in Nov, and then Dec.
