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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Joe Ide can write!

This is the second in Joe Ide’s excellent character driven series featuring the young genius Isaiah Quinte (spelling? Dunno), AKA IQ. Still haunted by the unsolved murder of his beloved older brother, who was his mentor and moral compass in a rough world, Isaiah has become a minor neighborhood celebrity, solving large and small problems as they arise. Sullivan voices the thoughts of IQ with the deliberate calm of a young Denzel Washington, and delivers a wide range of voices (male, female, several dialects and crystal-clear personalities) brilliantly - I don’t think I’ve heard a better reading. The story moves along at a jaunty clip, featuring eccentric, fully fleshed-out characters and great dialogue along the way. Excellent.

WOW!!! A great ride!

Loved IQ, and this was every bit as captivating. The characters, the plot, the fantastic writing style, and the narration are all as good as it gets. Joe, please write lots more!
