Being a huge Melissa F. Miller fan, I had high hopes for the Bodhi King Novels (Dr. King is from Improper Influence of the Sasha McCandless Legal Series) and I am happy to report that the first book in this new series did not let me down!
Dr. Bodhi King comes out of early retirement to investigate a cluster of deaths of patients at an assistant living facility (ALF) on a private island in the Florida Keys — patients who seemed healthy before their sudden deaths. "They just up and died in the middle of the night with grotesque grimaces of fear pasted on their faces." ...
The only patients dying are Cuban-American and they all seem to have secrets... Members of the Golden Island Church have their own secrets to protect... Nobody seems to want Bodhi to get to the truth...
Bodhi heads to Golden Island, where he works with Detective Felicia Williams and Medical Examiner Dr. Joel Ashlund to try to solve the cases before another "guest" dies.
This book was a great read from start to finish. The story was intriguing and entertaining. The characters were interesting (Bodhi King was my favourite character, of course) and believable. I thought I had figured who the guilty party was early on, but I was wrong. I have never read a story like this one, the plot was unique.
