Publisher's Summary

In this hotly anticipated follow-up to the smash hit IQ, a New York Times Critics' Best of the Year and nominee for the Best First Novel Edgar Award, Isaiah uncovers a secret behind the death of his brother, Marcus.
For 10 years something has gnawed at Isaiah Quintabe's gut and kept him up nights, boiling with anger and thoughts of revenge. Ten years ago, when Isaiah was just a boy, his brother was killed by an unknown assailant. The search for the killer sent Isaiah plunging into despair and nearly destroyed his life. Even with a flourishing career, a new dog, and near-iconic status as a PI in his hometown, East Long Beach, he has to begin the hunt again - or lose his mind.
A case takes him and his volatile, dubious sidekick, Dodson, to Vegas, where Chinese gangsters and a terrifying seven-foot loan shark are stalking a DJ and her screwball boyfriend. If Isaiah doesn't find the two first, they'll be murdered. Awaiting the outcome is the love of IQ's life: fail, and he'll lose her. Isaiah's quest is fraught with treachery, menace, and startling twists, and it will lead him to the mastermind behind his brother's death, Isaiah's own sinister Moriarty.
With even more action, suspense, and mind-bending mysteries than Isaiah's first adventures, Righteous is a rollicking, ingenious thrill ride.


What the Critics Say

"The game's afoot once again for 20-something genius sleuth Isaiah Quintabe.... [Ide] keeps your head in the game throughout with his witty style and edgy storytelling, both of which show greater assurance than in his first novel - and even bigger potential for the future. A thrilling follow-up to one of the more auspicious detective-series debuts in recent memory." (Kirkus Reviews)
"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. Righteous is a riveting follow up to IQ." (Michael Connelly, author of The Late Show)

Best new book series....

The author is amazing in his story telling. I love the details of stories and the background for the characters. Isaiah is one of the best, if not the best, new character to come along in a long time. The relationship between he and Dodson is deep, complex and yet warm. I look forward to seeing how that develops in the future. I am also looking forward to Isiah's relationship with Grace and how that plays out, because OF COURSE there have to be more books. In fact, I hope Mr. Ide is working on one RIGHT NOW. I enjoyed Righteous just as much as IQ and just CANNOT wait for the next one to come out.
