Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes JOE IDE. Joe's first crime fiction novel, "IQ" is winning the hearts and minds of readers around the world. East Long Beach. The LAPD is barely keeping up with the high crime rate. Murders go unsolved, senior citizens are hoodwinked, storekeepers are robbed and children are missing. But word has gotten around. If you’ve got a case the police can’t or won’t touch, Isaiah Quintabe will help you out. They call him IQ. He’s a loner and a high school dropout, his unassuming nature disguising a relentless determination and a fierce intelligence. He charges his clients whatever they can afford, which might be a set of tires or a homemade casserole. To get by, he’s forced to take on clients that can pay. This time, it’s a rap mogul whose life in his danger. As Isaiah investigates, he encounters a vengeful ex-wife, a crew of notorious cutthroats, a monstrous attack dog, and a hit man who even other hit men say is a lunatic. The deeper Isaiah digs, the more far reaching and dangerous the case becomes. No one expects the quiet kid from East Long Beach to have overwhelming brain power, a honed set of street smarts, and extraordinary powers of observation. It’s Isaiah’s one advantage. When you come from nothing, nobody sees you coming.
