Share Article

The first mystery novel from relationship expert Gay Hendricks and screenwriter, Tinker Lindsay, has earned stellar reviews in its first week of release. The First Rule Of Ten is the first volume of a series featuring a Tibetan Buddhist private detective in Los Angeles.

The First Rule Of Ten, a new mystery from publisher Hay House, features Tenzing “Ten” Norbu, a cop turned P.I. in L.A.

The First Rule Of Ten is the first mystery novel from relationship expert Gay Hendricks and screenwriter, Tinker Lindsay. Judging from the positive reviews the book has received from critics and readers alike, the mystery-loving world loves Tenzing Norbu. Edgar Award nominee, Alison Gaylin, says, “…Savvy, sharp and spiritual, Tenzing Norbu is one of the most compelling detectives I’ve encountered on the page.” Julie Smith, author of the Skip Langdon series, says, “Tenzing Norbu is wholly original and very, very real—A great addition to detective fiction.”

Geneen Roth, author of Women, Food And God, says, “It’s got plenty of surprising plot twists, but even better, it’s rich with insight into the complexity of human relationships and being alive in this modern-day world. What could be better?”

Author Gay Hendricks says, “I’m really delighted that people are taking to Ten. I’ve received more fan letters in the past week since the book’s official release than I usually get in a year for one of my non-fiction books. My coauthor, Tinker, and I have fallen in love with Ten and can’t wait to see what he’s going to do next.” Tinker Lindsay adds, “As someone who reads detective mysteries obsessively, and gets very invested in the characters, I am thrilled at the enthusiastic response to Tenzing Norbu, and The First Rule of Ten. Our book has only been out there a short time, and already the audience of mystery readers is clamoring for more of Tenzing's unique investigative process as he goes one-on-one with the bad guys in Los Angeles. I’m happy to report we are already into writing book two, with more on the way.”
