The Fourth Rule of Ten
I've read all of the Rules of Ten now, thanks to NetGalley.
Book description: Ex–Buddhist monk, former LAPD detective, and current private investigator Tenzing “Ten” Norbu knows Bill Bohannon as many things: loving husband, devoted father, police administrator, former partner, and best friend. But then an uninvited guest from Bill’s past upends the Bohannons’ Fourth of July barbecue....
Ten finds himself disappointed in his best friend, trying to unravel a human trafficking organization, traveling to Sarajevo, and finally, hopeful about the return of an old flame.
Of course, there are the recurring voices of Ten's old friends from the Tibetan monastery and frequent references to Buddhist philosophy as he attempts to untangle all the twists in this tale.
How does an ex-monk manage his philosophical beliefs with the violence often required in his role of private investigator?
I really like this series, but although I enjoyed this latest installment, this is not my favorite.
