Tenzing Norbu
Created by Gay Hendricks & Tinker Lindsay

"Don't ignore intuitive tickles lest they reappear as sledgehammers."
-- the first rule of Ten.

Om. Ommm. Ommmmmmmmmm...

TENZING ("Ten" for short) NORBU is a former Tibetan monk (he grew up in a monastery) who came down from the mountain to teach meditation in Los Angeles, but instead became an LA cop.

Happens all the time, right?

Given that the planned trilogy is published by Hay House and that one of his co-creators, Gay Hendricks, is a relationships expert, one might reasonably expect a fair amount of New Age hokum and psychobabble.

Fortunately, while Ten does indeed ponder the mysteries of life, mediate a fair amount and at times seems overly fond of fortune cookie aphorisms (particularly his own), he's just as likely to reach for a cold beer as the mediatation mat to blow off steam.

Helping him in his more earthly pursuits, playing Watson to his Holmes, is the decidedly more earthbound Mike, a computer hacker. But whether Ten can rise above the incongruity of a gun-toting former monk going down the mean streets remains to be seen.
