Book Description:

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.

My review:

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.

Thanks to OrangeSky Audio and NetGalley for my review copy.
