Product description


One of the Best Books of the Year - CrimeReads---

"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

"A lively writer with a smart-aleck streak... His dialogue is clever and advances the narrative, and he knows how to stage an action scene."--Seattle Times

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

"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 audacity is what sets him so far apart from writers who try mightily to simulate tough guys from the streets... His characters' vernacular, some of it hysterically funny, is unfailingly spot-on."--Newark Star-Ledger

"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

"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--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

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

"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)

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

About the Author

Joe lives in Santa Monica, CA.
