All Bodhi King wants is a little peace and quiet. Okay, a lot of peace and quiet. After all, that is why he traveled to a Buddhist monastery in rural Illinois in the first place: to attend a silent retreat.
But after he finds the garroted corpse of an unidentified man near the monastery’s meditation labyrinth, all hope of quiet contemplation is lost. He rolls up his sleeves to identify the murder victim and determine who killed him and why.
A pair of federal agents who insist the crime has national security implications; a bold and brainy plant pathologist; and a no-nonsense police chief determined to protect her town all insist on lending a hand.
But, as far-reaching international financial and political consequences come into play, loyalties shift, and Bodhi’s not sure whom to trust. The wrong choice could cost him his life.
Hidden Path is the third book in the Bodhi King forensic thriller series by USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller.
