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!

    I enjoy mysteries combined with medicine, in this case forensic medicine. Bodhi King is a believable character. Good to have found new books to read! I recommend this. Easy to read, not hokey but believable.
  • Great introduction to a great character

    As with her other books, Ms. Miller kept me up late reading this first Bodhi book. The new characters were intriguing and well written and the story line kept me guessing until the end. I can’t wait to read book 2 about Bodhi! I was provided an advance copy of this book.

    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.
