Overview

An overdose epidemic, a girl who's supposed to be dead, and a chance encounter with an old flame land Bodhi in the middle of a high-stakes crime ring.

Bodhi King returns in the second book in the forensic thriller series from USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller.

Bodhi's honored when he's invited to present a paper at an international forensic pathology conference. And he's stunned when he learns his former girlfriend is a fellow panelist.

It's been more than a decade since Bodhi broke Eliza's heart, and his behavior weighs on him. He convinces her to join him for dinner in the Quebec countryside so he can make amends.

Returning to the hotel after their meal, they see a dazed young woman, barefoot and mute, standing by the roadside. She has no memory of who she is or what's happened to her.

Bodhi and Eliza put aside their past to help the shattered woman reclaim her life. In the process, they discover the horrifying truth about an overdose epidemic plaguing the region. The knowledge paints a target on their backs.

As a Buddhist, Bodhi follows a path of nonviolence, but his faith will be tested when Eliza's life is on the line.

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.

Another great Bodhi story. You learn a little more about his past in this one, as we are introduced to Eliza, an ex of his from many years ago. They are both at a pathology conference, in the same town where overdoses are happening from a designer drug. They get caught up in the mystery of what is really happening to these people, when they stumble across a woman in the middle of the street. Enjoyed reading this one.

LONELY PATH by Melissa Miller. "Bodhi King" book 2 Having read the first book was looking forward to more with Bodie King. What would cause a young student to want to feel powerful and alone, but not lonely. A dealer, with a conscience and something has gone wrong. At a conference Bodhi, was delighted to see a special woman from college days, but she wasn't. She had been the love of his life, but his was a solitary journey. Joe a Forensic Biologist tells of a new drug causing a rush of overdoses. It's a new designer drug. The Inspector reaches out to Bodhi to help. " I deal with dead people " he replies. She is as good as dead, and legally declared as such, and buried. She was a college student, could she be the link to this new drug causing overdoses. What follows is a fascinating look, at something so new, so deadly and a total mystery of what it is. Bodhi has his work cut out for him ; a body is not dead till they are embalmed, he says. The plot is fascinating, a subject so different, and to read how Bodhi feels about it, has the readers to ponder. Thank goodness the next one will be out in December
