Description

A resident of one of LA's toughest neighborhoods uses his blistering intellect to solve the crimes that the Los Angeles Police Department ignores. East Long Beach. The LAPD is barely keeping up with the neighborhood's high crime rate. Murders go unsolved, lost children unrecovered. But someone from the neighborhood has taken it upon himself to help solve the cases the police can't or won't touch. They call him IQ. He's a loner and a high school dropout, his unassuming nature disguising a relentless determination and a fierce intelligence. He charges his clients whatever they can afford, which might be a set of tires or a homemade casserole. To get by, he's forced to take on clients that can pay. This time, it's a rap mogul whose life is in danger. As Isaiah investigates, he encounters a vengeful ex-wife, a crew of notorious cutthroats, a monstrous attack dog, and a hit man who even other hit men say is a lunatic. The deeper Isaiah digs, the more far reaching and dangerous the case becomes.

Professional reviews

"Author Joe Ide and narrator Sullivan Jones make a phenomenal team. Ide writes a crack debut with charm, wit, and style. Jones delivers it with such ease and perfection that listeners will feel they're living the story instead of listening to it. Isaiah Quintabe, a gifted young man living in a tough Los Angeles neighborhood, uses his intellectual ability to help those in need--solving crimes and righting wrongs. He's a fresh take on the classic detective. Jones articulates every aspect of Isaiah's personality--his swagger as well as his doubts, his compassion alongside his defiance. Jones will have listeners on the edge of their seats and laughing out loud at the same time. The smart choice is this exemplary audiobook. J.F.
