Joe Ide is of Japanese American descent and grew up in South Central Los Angeles. Joe’s favorite books were the Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories. The idea that a person could face the world and vanquish his enemies with just his intelligence fascinated him. Joe went on to earn a graduate degree and had several careers before writing his breakout debut novel, IQ, inspired by his early experiences and love of Sherlock. IQ won the Anthony, Macavity, and Shamus Awards and was nominated for an Edgar and a Barry. Joe lives in Santa Monica, California. HI FIVE is his fourth IQ novel.
