"Keep current with the truth: we're only as weak as our secrets- especially the ones we keep from ourselves. That's the Third Rule of Ten. As the go-to private detective for a bevy of high-profile clients, our beloved ex-Buddhist monk, ex-LAPD officer, Tenzing "Ten" Norbu, has finally found his stride. With his beautiful pathologist girlfriend, a healthy bank account, and a steady stream of clients, courtesy of middle-aged movie star Mac Gannon and rising political star Bets McMurtry, Ten's life is bursting with activity. But it's not all joy and happiness. The death of his father and a growing abundance of secrets-both personal and professional-leave Ten feeling an unexpected depth of sorrow and confusion. Even with the emotional turmoil, nothing can stop Ten from taking the case when McMurtry's housekeeper goes missing. The investigation leads him down a dangerous path littered with bodies, untraceable prescription drugs, and human organ trafficking. But nothing is as shocking as the realization that the mastermind behind it all is none other than-Chaco Morales, a criminal that slipped through Ten's hands once already. The Third Rule of Ten will have readers on the edges of their seats, as they learn, along with Ten, that there is a fine line between healthy privacy and unhealthy secrecy. Knowing the difference may just determine whether Ten will stop Chaco or lose himself"--… (mer)

This is a great series, mindful thinking with crime solving. ( )

This is one of the best mysteries I've ever read.

The Third Rule of Ten starts with what ought to be a straightforward missing person case ... and gets more and more convoluted and elaborate as time goes one. Meanwhile Ten (short for Tenzing) -- currently a private investigator, but with a background both in the LAPD and as a Buddhist monk -- deals with his own personal issues while pursuing the case even after his clients ask him to stop.

This is the third book in the series by Gay Hendricks and Tinker Lindsay, but I did not feel lost; enough back-story is included to catch me up (though it does make me eager to read the previous books).

The pacing is excellent, both on the personal and the mystery areas, and they are nicely intertwined. Ten does grow as a person -- sometimes reluctantly (like all of us!), and so do his friends, his co-workers and his girlfriend. This makes it satisfying in a way that many mystery novels are not.

Difficult and complex situations lead to difficult and complex resolutions. I especially loved Ten because he is not always convinced he's right.

The teaser excerpt from No. 4 at the end definitely makes me want to read it! Highly recommended for mystery fans.

I got this book for review via rambles.net, and online ezine that reviews books, music, and movies. ( )

3.5 out of 5 stars. I loved the first book in this series, The First Rule of Ten. Who wouldn't love a mystery series based on a Buddhist monk turned LAPD detective turned PI? I enjoyed The Second Rule of Ten, but not quite as much as the first.

I still enjoyed this third book, but it is my least favorite of the three. The Tenzing character is terrific, but in this book, he has lost some of his naiveté, some of his enthusiasm, and has lost touch with his authentic self.

The crux of the story was slow to start, although it didn't get into the missing person aspect quickly. Ten's longtime Tibetan friends were grounded and loving, and I like them and their insertions of wisdom into the story.

This latest of the three Rule of Ten books may be my least favorite, but I'm not giving up on the series. I still enjoyed it more than I enjoy some other authors' best mysteries, and I'm still a fan.

I was given an e-book copy of this book for review. ( )

This is a solid series that offers a twist on the PI novel with the main character' s background as a Tibetan monk. This outing showcases politics, illegal immigration, gangs and drug cartels and gets a little slick in places but comes through in the end. I personally like the less successful Tenzing found in the earlier books, but perhaps success hasn't spoiled him yet. I will be reading number four to find out. Provided by publisher. ( )
