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!

About the Author

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Melissa F. Miller was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Although life and love led her to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and, ultimately, South Central Pennsylvania, she secretly still considers Pittsburgh home.

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.

Now, powered by coffee, she writes crime fiction and homeschools her children. When she's not writing, and sometimes when she is, Melissa travels around the country in an RV with her husband, three kids, and their cat.

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).

At the end of the book, the author writes how much she loves doing research. It shows: her knowledge gave her a strong base on which to build a smart and interesting book. The characters feel complex, and the lead character is intriguing. The dialogue is smart and realistic. The pacing of the story is consistent. The author used enough of her research to build a clever and plausible story without using so much that she bogs it down in extraneous detail. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series.

What a wonderful story, it's rare to find a mystery with a path not read before as a 64 yr old avid reader. I was so surprised at the basis for the prime character and throughly entertained. I highly recommend this book, if fact I'm off to get the rest of this series and hopefully the author will be prolific and write many more.
