Dark Path

Dark Path Summary

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 Todaybestselling author Melissa F. Miller. Lonely Path (Book 2), Hidden Path (Book 3), and Twisted Path (Book 4) are available now!

Dark Path5 star

I really like this series. GREAT storylines and real people “detectives.” The lack of distracting, gratuitous sex also intrigued me. It’s been a while since that happened!! I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading more books by Melissa Miller..55

Exquisite combination of science and religion. Are the combination of the Bible statements and the Buddha statements bolstering with one another are Illuminating. Posturing that three religions agree with each other in very different methodologies supports my personal theory that there are many roads to the top of the mountain.55

Didn’t want to put it down!5 star

Normally, I only read books at night. Yet, Dark Path had me reading during Red Sox and Bruins games, and all during shark week. I’ll take this book over TV any day! Great read, highly recommend. Fascinating topic to research about after as well :)55
