The Fourth Rule of Ten

Gay Hendricks, Tinker Lindsay



In the latest installment in the Dharma Detective series, private investigator Tenzing 'Ten' Norbu takes on the seedy world of human trafficking in Los Angeles and abroad. Following a shocking revelation involving his best friend and former partner, Bill, Ten is sent on an unexpected trip to Sarajevo to find a missing family member. This propels him on a mission to track down the ringleader of a corrupt worldwide organization operating through the dark tunnels of the Internet, whose impact hits too close to home.

Ten is aided by a diverse cast of characters, including his eccentric assistant, Kim; genius hacker Mike; informant-turned-entrepreneur G-Force; and Petar, a chain-smoking Bosnian cab driver and fellow ex-police officer.
Struggling to keep his personal and professional life intact proves difficult as Ten attempts to help Bill's strained marriage; resolve unfinished business with Bill's sister-in-law, Julie; heal his own family scars; and protect more innocent victims - all while facing down issues that are far bigger than he ever imagined.

I love this Dharma Detective series by Gay Hendricks and Tinker Lindsay, and this newest mystery continues to shine! (There are three previous stories about this character.) Anyone who enjoys mystery stories, enlightenment, or both, will thoroughly enjoy this book, The Fourth Rule of Ten.

Tenzing Norbu: ex-monk, ex-LAPD, private detective, hugely likable character. His fourth rule is about letting go of expectations, and his cases and relationships provide opportunities for practice. A conglomerate teaser of story elements includes:

Human trafficking
A shocking development with his longtime friends
A foreign country
Missing persons
A developing network of personal support
The return of a person important in his past
And of course, the detailed cars, guns, and lunches are still present, as is the purring Tank. Also, he still appreciates a good beer.

It’s good to know some things are constant, even as we let go of expectations and outcomes.

This book was given to me in exchange for my honest opinion of it, through the Hay House Book Nook blogger program.
