Summary

Soon to be a major TV series produced by Snoop Dogg.

In this fifth book in the IQ series, IQ is back, with the same larger-than-life characters and pulse-pounding action fans love - all leading up to a twist even a genius can't see coming. 

Isaiah Quintabe is no longer IQ, the genius of East Long Beach; instead, he’s a man on the road and on the run, hiding in a small Northern California town when his room is broken into by a desperate young man on the trail of the state’s most prolific serial killer.

Great performance

I love IQ. And this book has a few different threads. But it fleshes out the characters and provides more insight into those on the sidelines to IQ.
And Zeno makes the stories exciting, he really brings them to life. Such a brilliant performer.

Solid but something missing

Enjoyable and the focus on other characters make it a fuller experience, but it feels like it finishes too soon. That’s normal with a lot of ‘twice a year’ type writers but irritating knowing it’ll be 12 months before you see the story developments bloom.

a series in decline.

The performance gets more strident and hyperbolic in lockstep with the increasing implausibility of the plot. Ide should find a new thread.
