Summary

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 recognised. Dodson, once his sidekick, is now his full-fledged partner, hell-bent on giving 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. 

So when a young painter approaches IQ for help tracking down her missing mother, it's not just the case Isaiah's looking for but 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. 

Waiting for Isaiah around every corner is Seb, the Oxford-educated African gangster who was responsible for the death of his brother, Marcus. Only this time, Isaiah's not alone. Joined by a new love interest and his familiar band of accomplices, IQ is back - and the adventures are better than ever.

Exciting and well performed

A number of threads intertwining. Like watching a movie thanks to the exceptional narration of Sullivan Jones. Someone should pick this book up for a film series.

Unmissable

The IQ stories are really finding their feet now. The characters are becoming fleshed out and the relationships making sense. The story is intriguing. The humour is wonderful and totally in line with the overall story. The whole thing just works and really would make a great movie or TV show.

excellent narrator

Really enjoyed this and it is just as good as the previous books about IQ. I think it's worth listening in order as knowing the back story added to my enjoyment of this book . The narrator is excellent lots of different characters !
