Reviews
"Sharply rendered characters flesh out the book. . . Such varied types make the pages snap, crackle and pop. With sleight of hand and twist of plot, Mr. Ide takes time to render his cast in rich psychological detail."--Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal
"Joe Ide continues sensational streak with latest in 'IQ' series... Ide is a kind of everyman who showed the publishing and reading worlds how good and how different a procedural can be... His scripting is flawless."

--Jeffrey Mannix, The Durango Telegraph
"Ide ably manages his usual trick of mixing comic turns. . . with ramped-up tension. . . And, yet, there is something new here, fighting to be heard: a deep note of all-prevailing sadness."--Booklist, Starred Review
"If you are new to Joe Ide's IQ series, it's a clever spin on what it might be like if the next Sherlock Holmes appeared in an African American neighborhood in Los Angeles. IQ, which stands for Isaiah Quintabe, is one of the most singular characters in crime fiction -- asocial, brilliant, and deeply moral." --Lisa Levy, Washington Post
PRAISE FOR JOE IDE AND THE IQ SERIES:

"If you've read any of his other novels starring the rogue East Long Beach private investigator Isaiah Quintabe, known as "IQ," you know that Ide doesn't write conventional suspense stories...."―Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post

"A journeyman writer and a superb storyteller."―Jeff Mannix, The Durango Telegraph

"Ide has displayed a rare ability to mix dark comedy and gut-churning drama...mixmaster Ide's compulsion to blend light and dark (Isaiah's confrontation with the serial killers, while gruesome, takes the form of "a slapstick movie shot in a burning insane asylum") affects the two plots in surprising ways, again producing an emotion-rich form of character-driven tragicomedy, but one in which peril forever loiters in the shallows."―Booklist

"The plot lines are becoming even more ferocious. And IQ keeps getting... smarter? Yep. And the ending? YIKES. Book six Mr. Ide? Bring. It. ON!"―Berkley McDaniel, The Southern Bookseller Review

"A brand-new comedic franchise with a bright future... Aggressively entertaining plotting is paired with the kind of dialogue for which readers love Don Winslow. This series is a Los Angeles classic right from the start." ― Janet Maslin, New York Times

"Joe's brilliant imagining of what Sherlock Holmes would be like if he came out of East Long Beach."―Mike Lupica, New York Daily News


"Mr. Ide writes with cinematic flair, conjuring a hair-raising and heartwarming tale."--Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal "The Best Books of 2023: Mystery'
