The Third Rule of Ten - Book Review

image credit
The Third Rule of Ten is the third book in a series that follows Tenzing "Ten" Norbu, a former Buddhist monk turned detective. But you don't have to have read the previous two books in order to follow along with the third. However, after reading this, you'll probably want to go back and read the first two if they are anything like this one!

In this book, Ten takes on a missing persons case for an old friend's old friend. The client is a female politician whose illegal immigrant maid has gone missing. As Ten begins to search for the maid, whose illegal status makes her hard to find, he gets mixed up in something really dangerous involving drugs, organ donation, murder, and gangs. Who is involved? And how is it all connected?

I really don't know how the co-authors of this series are able to come up with new mysteries to solve in each book! I really liked this story because it kept me guessing. The book had lots of twists and turns with danger lurking at every page turn. But it also had some soul. There's a personal struggle for Ten who is dealing with the recent death of his dad, trying to figure out if he still wants to be with his girlfriend, and letting his vegetarian status lapse.

If you're looking for a fast-paced detective thriller to read this summer, then definitely pick up The Third Rule of Ten.

The Third Rule of Ten is published by Hay House and is available to purchase now. I received a free review copy for my honest review.
