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.
While this is the first book in the series, it felt more like you were jumping into the middle without the backstory. The plot focuses on a cluster of deaths at a nursing home in Florida. There’s a little bit of Buddhism, a little Cuban history, a little bit about Catholicism and a few murders to solve.
While the book is OK, I just didn’t find myself wanting to know who did it or why.
Andrew Tell is the narrator and does a terrific job.
