Product description

Review

Joe Ide is one of the hottest mystery novelists at work... The wonder of love, the cruelty of war, the black world he knows well, the music he loves (Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, George Shearing) - all the beauty and cruelty and craziness he filed away in his mind before he began writing these novels. With Wrecked, Ide confirms that he's among the most original new voices in today's crime fiction -- Patrick Anderson ― Washington Post

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

The hip-hop generation's answer to Sherlock Holmes returns fast and furious in the third installment of Ide's (Righteous, 2017, etc.) 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

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 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

To describe the series in a single sentence, it embodies a lot of thought-provoking analysis, a good deal of brutality, and more than a smattering of Three Stooges thrown in for balance . . . Of his many talents, Ide's greatest is putting the reader definitively in the moment. The sense of authenticity is what sets him far apart from writers who try mightily to simulate tough guys from the streets. Ide grew up in South Central. He doesn't have to imagine anything. His characters' vernacular, some of it hysterically funny, is unfailingly spot-on -- Fran Wood ― Newark Star-Ledger

Joe Ide's IQ novels are an electrifying combination of Holmesian mystery and SoCal grit ― Time

Blazing... 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

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

Review

Joe Ide is the best new discovery I've come across in a long time. And Isaiah Quintabe is the kind of sleuth not seen on the mystery landscape before

Going to blow through the crime fiction world like a fire hose-blast of fresh air. . . IQ will become a reader favorite. It will get glowing reviews. It will be nominated for awards. Let me save you waiting around for the word of mouth to reach you - buy this book now

Boasting a combustible cocktail of Bosch, Hiaasen and Conan Doyle, Joe Ide's Sherlock home-boy is the detective you need in your life right now

Joe Ide's IQ is a wondrous double-helix of mean-street savvy entwined with classical detection, like Conan Doyle as channeled through Martin Scorsese. It's a terrific book

One of the most remarkable debuts I've read...Deliciously quirky, written with exceptional panache and a fine ear for dialogue, it introduces the world to an LA private detective who might just become the Holmes of the 21st century - DAILY MAIL on IQ
