What's done is done. Until Bodhi unearths a long-buried secret.

 

When a corpse surfaces during an archaeological dig, Bodhi King’s in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Bodhi tags along as his girlfriend’s plus-one at a convention of small-town police chiefs. While Bette is learning the latest in law enforcement advancements, he plans to meditate in the resort’s Japanese garden and hike its mountain trails.

Instead, he finds himself helping an archaeology professor determine how, why, and when someone buried a woman near the cabin of a post-Civil War sharecropper. As the circumstances around the dead woman’s demise come to light, the secrets of the past threaten to unleash destruction in the present.

 

The cold case heats up to a boiling point when his old flame joins the team and a murderer strikes.


Cold Path is the fifth book in the Bodhi King forensic thriller series by USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller.

About the author

USA TODAY bestselling author Melissa F. Miller is a former attorney who traded the practice of law for the art of telling stories. She is the author of more than two dozen bestselling legal thrillers, suspense thrillers, romantic comedic mysteries, and forensic thrillers.

Practicing Buddhist and retired forensic pathologist Bodhi King seeks peace. But 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.

A blazingly inventive near-future thriller from the best-selling, Hugo Award-winning John Scalzi.

Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent - and nearly five million souls in the United States alone - the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge.

A quarter of a century later, in a world shaped by what's now known as "Haden's syndrome," rookie FBI agent Chris Shane is paired with veteran agent Leslie Vann. The two of them are assigned what appears to be a Haden-related murder at the Watergate Hotel, with a suspect who is an "integrator" - someone who can let the locked in borrow their bodies for a time. If the Integrator was carrying a Haden client, then naming the suspect for the murder becomes that much more complicated.

But "complicated" doesn't begin to describe it. As Shane and Vann began to unravel the threads of the murder, it becomes clear that the real mystery - and the real crime - is bigger than anyone could have imagined. The world of the locked in is changing, and with the change comes opportunities that the ambitious will seize at any cost. The investigation that began as a murder case takes Shane and Vann from the halls of corporate power to the virtual spaces of the locked in, and to the very heart of an emerging, surprising new human culture. It's nothing you could have expected.
