    There's a lot more pathos in this installment, and it's making Ide's series even richer. IQ and Dodson have new depths that set them up very nicely for future novels?I can't wait to see where they go. Also #DerondaForever. ...

    Isaiah Quintabe (aka IQ) can be likened to a modern day Sherlock Holmes, such is his superior intellect and heightened powers of deduction which are comparable to the renowned PI of early crime fiction. While his sidekick, Dodson isn't quite Sherlock's Watson, he's a great character an...

    Joe Ide once again tells an interesting crime story about people liviing in Southern California. IQ and his business partner seem to get into terrible trouble with little prospect of remuneration. Once again Sullivan Jones does a perfect reading in the audiobook. ...

    I liked the first two books in the IQ series, IQ and Righteous, but this one was a lot harder for me to like because of the repeated, detailed descriptions of torture. I?m also a mystery lover, and there really wasn?t much of any mystery in this book. It starts out as a missing-per...

    Isaiah Quintabe (IQ) and his sidekick Dodson are two of my favorite literary characters. Those who like series characters such as Harry Bosch and Jack Reacher should definitely check out IQ's adventures. In this installment, IQ and his "scoobies" go up against a former CIA spook and...

    Wrecked by Joe Ide is an action-packed mystery starring street smart and highly observant sleuth Isaiah "IQ" Quintabe and his somewhat trusty sidekick/partner Juanell Dodson. This third installment in the IQ series can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend the previous two nov...

    Story opens with a prologue bringing the reader back to things past, from real world news, ones of past horrors and Abu Ghraib, men and women part of those terrible images of degradation. The first chapter shifts to IQ and his management of business as a pi and trying to get some more ...

    This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- At the end of Righteous, Isaiah meets a girl -- I don't remember much about it, but there's something about here that clearly makes an impression on IQ -- and his dog. It was enough to give us a little hope for our intrepid h...

    Dear Mr. Ide, Thank you for another badass read with mystery, action, love, and loneliness. I adore Isaiah Quintabe (IQ). He can make me smile, laugh, sad, and think?and often times all at once! Wrecked, your third book in the IQ series, felt more like a Grace book to me though....

    The first of the series was still the best, but this installment adds quite a bit to the depth of the characters. ...

    Wrecked is pretty much nonstop action the moment all of the main characters are introduced. It packs a punch and had awesome plot progression. Basically, it?s a battle between a team of giant assholes?who literally raped and tortured and killed on a regular basis?and Isaiah an...

    It doesn?t usually take me this long to finish an IQ mystery. I tore through the two previous books in a day or so. ?Wrecked? was different. From the very beginning, this was obviously a very different book than ?IQ? or ?Righteous.? It?s a wild ride, of course, w...

    I still like IQ, the colorful characters and the sharp, fast dialogue, but this book is a hyper violent torture fest. The first book was so good, but I think the prospect of filming this series has hurt it. There is too much emphasis on action. I realize that a lot of people love that,...

    I review a lot of mysteries and thrillers. Many are mediocre and only a few stand out, especially from first-time writers. Joe Ide has written excellent mysteries, IQ and Righteous. Both are captivating. Wrecked is the third of the IQ series. Isaiah Quintabe, IQ for short is a Long Bea...

    Joe Ide was kind enough to send me an ARC of this title. I own his previous two books, with the same protagonist (IQ). The first two books were fairly quick reads .... the first one, however, had a lot of 'hood slang talk, which I had trouble with at first. By the time this 3rd vol...

    Joe Ide opens Wrecked, the latest of his neo-noir IQ series, with the book?s protagonist in a world of trouble. For Isaiah Quintabe, the eponymous hero of Ide?s novels, his world consists of the mean streets of LA. Yet, hot to help a desperate artist track down her long-lost mommy,...

    Isaiah Quintabe (IQ), a young private investigator, is smarter than everyone else. He serves his Long Beach community by solving his neighbor?s problems, and he is very good at it ? but not so good at getting paid, often as not accepting trade or goods in lieu of money. While he?...

    The third book in this series is just as good as the previous two. All the characters are there, Isaiah, Dodgson, Deronda and Grace from the second book. Full of humor, shady, wounded, and evil people the action and story just keeps humming along. A great read. ...

    ?Get ready, son,...Cause Karma?s about to kick your ass.? Blackmail, conspiracy, and an awkwardly sweet romance are at the forefront of Wrecked, the third book in the IQ series. This is a fast-paced, action-packed mystery filled with quirky loveable characters and intriguing ...

    I have previously read the first two novels in the series, IQ and Righteous. I felt that they complimented each other so well and issues from the debut were resolved in the follow up. So I genuinely was left wondering where the author would take this series in the future. That was unti...

    The third I.Q. novel is more of the same. I love Joe Ide. He's such a skillful writer. His description, his similes and his dialogue. I was so looking forward to this, and I saw the reviews from advanced copies, saying it was a bigger, more expansive book, and I thought, wow. this m...
