Sunday, October 21st @ 3:00pm - Joe Ide discusses and signs "Wrecked"
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Joe Ide to the store to discuss and sign his latest mystery in the IQ series, Wrecked, on Sunday, October 21st at 3:00 pm. Please note that this event will take place in the lower outdoor courtyard adjacent to our store.
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 has made him so notorious that he can hardly go to the corner store without being recognized. 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. 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.
Joe Ide grew up in South Central Los Angeles. Joe's favorite books were the Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories. He held a variety of different jobs--including Hollywood screenwriter--before writing IQ, which went on to win the Anthony, Macavity, and Shamus awards for Best Debut Novel. Joe lives in Santa Monica, California.
