Don't ignore intuitive tickles lest they reappear as sledgehammers. That's the first rule of ten. In The First Rule of Ten, the first instalment in a three part book series, we meet this spiritual warrior who is singularly equipped, if not occasionally ill-equipped, as he takes his first case as a private investigator in Los Angeles. Growing up in a Tibetan Monastery, Ten dreamed of becoming a modern day Sherlock Holmes. So when he was sent to Los Angeles to teach meditation, he joined the LAPD instead., But as the Buddha says, change is inevitable, and ten years later everything is about to change, big-time for Ten. One resignation from the Police Force, two bullet wounds, three suspicious deaths, and a beautiful woman later, he quickly learns that whenever he breaks his first rule, mayhem follows. Set in the modern day streets and canyons of Los Angeles, The First Rule of Ten is at turns humorous, insightful, and riveting. It is a gripping mystery as well as a reflective, character-driven story with intriguing life-lessons for all of us.
