Excellent Team Work,
This review is from: The First Rule of Ten: A Tenzing Norbu Mystery (Tenzing Norbu Mysteries) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?)I was skeptical when I picked up The First Rule of Ten because I saw that it was team written by two authors. All too often team written books turn out to be exercises in committee writing - fortunately that wasn't the case here. Mr. Hendricks and Ms. Lindsay have produced an excellent mystery with an intriguing main character. But it was their supporting characters that kept me engaged with the story along with the personality ticks of the main character, Tenzing, aka Ten, Norbu.
I found the writing crisp and while I can't comment on the accuracy and interpretation of the Buddhist teaching referenced in the book I did find them enjoyable to read and good advice regardless of your religious affiliation. The plot itself is fairly straight-forward and somewhat predictable but enjoyable nonetheless. I look forward to reading the next installment in the Tenzing Norbu mystery series.
