Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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.

    *Starred Review* Ide makes it three for three with his latest IQ novel (following Righteous?, 2017). East Long Beach PI Isaiah "IQ" Quintabe's off-the-grid, help-the-disenfranchised business is thriving in every way but one—money-paying clients (Louella Barnes just settled her bill by knitting Isaiah a reindeer Christmas sweater). IQ's pal, streetwise, chief operating officer–wannabe Dodson, hopes to turn the business around with the help of spreadsheets and a gangsta approach to collections. However, the drug dealer whom Dodson, with help from Isaiah, robbed back in the day is out of jail and looking for his pound of flesh. Meanwhile, Isaiah has a new client, Grace, who is looking for her mom, who is wanted for murder; Isaiah is smitten with Grace and takes the case only to discover that she is every bit as socially awkward as IQ. And the vanished mother leads quickly to a confrontation with a group of former MPs who thrive on torture and are convinced that Grace's mother stole their money. Naturally, a confrontation ensues, with Grace, Dodson, and Isaiah seriously underarmed (as Dodson puts it, "We gonna go in there with a slingshot and a caulking gun?"). 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. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
