Wrecked - an IQ Novel
Wednesday, October 24 at 7 PM
Meet Joe Ide, whose novel IQ won the Anthony, Macavity, and Shamus awards for Best Debut Novel. He will read from his new IQ novel, Wrecked.
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. His once sidekick Dodson is now his full-fledged partner, determined to give 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.
When a young painter approaches IQ for help tracking down her missing mother, Isaiah is eager for the case as well as 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.
