Summary

Isaiah Quintabe, the genius PI who combines book smarts, street smarts and enough blistering action to melt the pavement of East Long Beach, is back with a new adventure. Fresh off the beating he took at the hands of a gang of ex-Abu Ghraib thugs working as paramilitary contractors, IQ is determined to build a life for himself with his new girlfriend, Grace. 

For once, he wants to be normal - a normal guy, with a normal PI business, doing the best he can. 

But this is IQ, and trouble is never far behind him....

Why only 2*

Story line was good BUT the continuous swearing was why I didn’t finish listening to the story. I think Audible should inform user when a book contains an horrific amount of swearing especially the F an C words which I personally find disturbing. I would not have downloaded the book if I had known before hand

Oh dear.

It's a sign that a writer has completely run out of ideas when they have to rely on ridiculous plot devices and this plot device is as ridiculous as it gets.

jump the shark

Sure it's still a page turner or keep-listener, but the plot goes way way ott. there's a plot device that I won't reveal but it's central and it's a sign that the writer has run out of road. ain silly, totally implausible. As to the performance it has two tones. Calm and hyperbolic/hysterical which he usual switches to for women.
I only don't ask for a refund cos I read to the end but Joe, start somewhere new with fresh characters and let these go.
