Defensive problem

A friend of mine entered the Allendale sectional IMP pairs recently. He shared 3 interesting hands with me that will appear this week and next, starting with this defensive problem.

What would you lead?

Say you lead the 10 which runs to declarer's queen. Declarer plays a club to the jack, holding as partner shows even count, and another club to partner's king. Partner plays a heart back to dummy's jack. What is your plan?
