Isaiah Quintabe—IQ for short—has never been more successful, or felt more alone. A series of high-profile wins in his hometown of East Long Beach have made him so notorious that he can hardly go to the corner store without being recognized. Dodson, once his sidekick, is now his full-fledged partner, hell-bent on giving IQ’s PI business some real legitimacy: a Facebook page, and IQ’s promise to stop accepting Christmas sweaters and carpet cleanings in exchange for PI services.

So when a young painter approaches IQ for help tracking down her missing mother, it’s not just the case Isaiah’s looking for, but the human connection. And when his new confidant turns out to be connected to a dangerous paramilitary operation, IQ falls victim to a threat even a genius can’t see coming.

Waiting for Isaiah around every corner is Seb, the Oxford-educated African gangster who was responsible for the death of his brother, Marcus. Only, this time, Isaiah’s not alone. Joined by a new love interest and his familiar band of accomplices, IQ is back—and the adventures are better than ever.

Quotes & Awards

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

    Booklist (starred review)

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

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “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.”

    Attica Locke, Edgar Award-winning author of Bluebird, Bluebird

  • “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.”
