About this ebook

'The best discovery I've come across in a long time' Michael Connelly

When the beautiful woman you've longed for since boyhood calls and asks you to find her missing sister, what do you do? If you are Isaiah Quintabe - IQ to his friends - you'll do everything you can. The girl, an erratic DJ and gambling addict, has gone missing in Las Vegas - with a frightening loan shark, Chinese Triad gangsters, and her own deadbeat boyfriend hot on her tail. But IQ's search takes an unexpected turn when he meets a criminal mastermind who knows something about the murky circumstances surrounding his own brother's death . . .

'Witty and confident, with a bustling plot, this is a worthy follow-up to Ide's excellent debut' Guardian

Faster and more tense that IQ, it is even more outrageously impossible. The multiple groups going after X and getting in each other's way letting X get clear is about my least favorite type of action plot.
Third-party review
This series, featuring a young Long Beach investigator, is engaging, but has too many distractions. Some of the characters and subplots are eventually linked back in while others just made me wonder. It has so much possibility, but I prefer a more linear plot strategy.
Third-party review
Funny, well written, light reading.
