A corpse in a cornfield. Neighbor waging war against neighbor. A journal written in code.
Forensic pathology Bodhi King’s silent retreat at Buddhism monastery hasn’t been as contemplative, or silent, as he hoped.
Bodhi’s plan was to meditate on the meaning of a recent run-in with an old flame, but instead he’s pressed into service to identify a murdered stranger.
He teams up with a pair of federal agents, a bold, brainy plant pathologist, and the no-nonsense small-town police chief. The players’ loyalties shift continually, and nothing’s as it seems.
Counseled by his Buddhist monk hosts, and out of his depth, Bodhi finds himself in the middle of investigation with international political and financial implications.
And, to think, all he wanted was a little peace and quiet.
Healthy residents of a posh assisted living facility are dying in the middle of the night…expressions of pure terror etched on their faces.
After solving a series of unexplained deaths several years ago, forensic pathologist Dr. Bodhi King retreated from the limelight. Now, he’s called out of early retirement to help investigate a death cluster on a private island in the Florida Keys, where he lands in the middle of a simmering conflict.
Members of the Golden Island Church have a furtive agenda to protect. The dying Cuban Americans have long-held secrets of their own. And everyone seems to have a reason to stop Bodhi from bringing the truth to light.
Dr. Bodhi King returns in this forensic thriller series by a USA Today best seller to uncover the cause of a puzzling spate of deaths in Canada.
Bodhi’s honored when he’s invited to present a paper at an international forensic pathology conference. He’s stunned when he learns that his old flame is a fellow panelist. It’s been more than a decade since Bodhi broke Eliza’s heart. He convinces her to join him for dinner in the Quebec countryside so he can make amends.
On the way back to the hotel after their meal, they encounter a dazed young woman 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…and are thrust together into an investigation that could prove to be their last.
