The Third Rule of Ten

Great girl. Great work. Great money.
Big problems.

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.
