Review: First Rule of Ten by Gay Hendricks, Tinker Lindsay

This is a good detective mystery with a different type of P.I.  Tenzing Norbu was a Tibetan monk turned L.A. Detective and now he is leaving the police to work for himself after being shot.
Days later a women came to his home looking for the previous owner and he thought she was after the guys money. Next day finds out she was murdered and feels bad so he decides to look into her murder. Ten finds out she left a commune after 10 years to warn her exhusband. While observing the commune Ten meets John D. a Almond grower who's trees are all dying.  They become friends and when he is mugged looks into that for him.
The mystery winds around and around as Ten tries to piece it all together.  He talks a little of what he learned from his life as a monk.  How he tries not to lie but he does mislead with parts of truth. His expartner looks up stuff for him also someone he busted and helped get on the right path helps him look up stuff on the computer.
Ten is a mixture of spirtual and worldly. He has a zen garden, sports car, fancy phone does not want to take money for nothing. Has a cat that can't climb down off a tree. believes in karma.  He is not just one thing but has good points and faults. Look forward to reading more of his adventures.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
