IQ by Joe Ide is the first in this mystery series.  Long Beach resident Isaiah Quintabe, aka IQ, aka "Sherlock in the Hood" has taken it upon himself to solve crimes in his neighborhood.  He's a loner, with a fierce wit, relentless determination and a soft heart--often letting clients pay with what they can afford.  When his on again/off again friend, Juanelle Dodson, brings IQ a high paying client, IQ takes the case.  Rap mogul Calvin Wright is being hunted and needs to figure out who is trying to kills him.  The list of suspects is long and varied: a vengeful ex-wife, a crew of cutthroats and a hit man that scares other hit men.  The deeper Isaiah digs, the more dangerous the case becomes.  If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes, you'll love this new series.  Poplar Creek also owns the sequel, Righteous, so check out both today!
