About the Author

Joe Ide is of Japanese American descent. Growing up in South Central Los Angeles, Joe's favorite books were the Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories. The idea that a person could face the world and vanquish his enemies with just his intelligence fascinated him. Joe went on to earn a graduate degree and had several careers before writing his debut novel, IQ, inspired by his early experiences and his love of Sherlock Holmes. Joe lives in Santa Monica, California.
Sullivan Jones is a talented actor and audiobook narrator who played basketball and studied theater at Brown University for two years, before leaving school to pursue his career in acting. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, he went on to study at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theatre and the UCLA School of Theatre, Film, and Television.


Joe Ide opens Wrecked...with the novelist's equivalent of a stun gun...[with] an appealing central character, propped up by a cast of crooks Elmore Leonard would envy.

-- "New York Times"

Once again, Ide brilliantly combines caper-style comedy with real-world violence.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

The books are delighting readers with their mixture of unique setting, complex action sequences, and frequent nods to Sherlockian inspirations, all updated and re-imagined for a modern era. In Wrecked...the new job demands personal growth and carries real emotional consequences, while still bringing the madcap fun that's an important part of Ide's signature style.

-- "CrimeReads"

The hip-hop generation's answer to Sherlock Holmes returns fast and furious in the third installment of Ide's celebrated series.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

I really enjoy this series about a PI who takes on cases in his East Long Beach neighborhood using his intelligence and deduction skills. Looks like this time around Dodson isn't just a sometimes needed sidekick but a full on partner. Oh, and he's got ideas for the business, like social media, and I'm already cracking up just imagining IQ's response.

-- "BookRiot"

Outrageous and laugh-out-loud funny, a page-turner with devastating observations about the dangers of state-sanctioned violence and its consequences. The characters are unforgettable, none more so than IQ himself. Like in the previous books, IQ's tender intelligence and his tight moral compass are what make this series so stirring...and touching.
