Product description

Review

"Once again, Ide brilliantly combines caper-style comedy with real-world violence and more than a dollop of complex human relationships, the kind that too often lead to mess and muddle rather than happily-ever-aftering. If you haven't discovered this series yet, remedial action is required immediately."--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... Ide's penchant for colorful characters, droll banter, and whackadoodle set pieces is aided by a growing command of narrative dynamics. And Isaiah Quintabe remains an engaging, fascinating protagonist... There's a harder, darker edge to the violence that gives this ripsnorting follow-up a rueful yet resonant aftertaste, perhaps in anticipation of more unsettling jolts in the hero's future."--Kirkus

"Having read all three of Joe Ide's novels about the young Sherlock Holmes of the 'hood, Isaiah Quintabe, I am pleased to say that his third novel, Wrecked, is the best one yet. The stakes are higher, the suspense more intense, and the addition of a budding romance provides more character depth. Read it, enjoy it, and then impatiently wait around for the next one like the rest of us."--Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, author of Mycroft Holmes and Coach Wooden and Me

"With writing so sharp you may cut your fingers on the pages, Joe Ide's latest IQ novel, Wrecked, is 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

"Wrecked takes Ide's unlikely hero into new territory, with foes that test his mettle in ways his previous adversaries could not even fathom, and with a possible love interest that exposes an entirely new facet of IQ's character."--BookPage

"Joe Ide's IQ novels are an electrifying combination of Holmesian mystery and SoCal grit."--Wilder Davies, Time

"Joe Ide opens Wrecked, the third book in his blazing IQ series, with the novelist's equivalent of a stun gun. . . . [IQ is] an appealing central character, propped up by a cast of crooks Elmore Leonard would envy. . . . Ide is still the hottest of recently-emerged crime writers. He has populated Southern California with wildly entertaining characters, from those hinted at offstage to the motormouths whose priceless talk fills his pages."--Janet Maslin, New York Times

"As far as I'm concerned, Joe Ide can't write them fast enough."--New York Times Book Review

"Raised in South Central, Joe Ide expands the territory of L.A. noir."--Gal Beckerman, New York Times

"Wrecked is full of violent action, hairbreadth escapes and poignant life lessons: an unpredictable book written by an author with wizard-like gifts."--Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal
