In this hotly anticipated follow-up to the smash hit IQ, a New York Times Critics' Best of the Year and winner of the Anthony, Macavity, and Shamus Awards, Isaiah uncovers a secret behind the death of his brother, Marcus.For ten years, something has gnawed at Isaiah Quintabe's gut and kept him up nights, boiling with anger and thoughts of revenge. Ten years ago, when Isaiah was just a boy, his brother was killed by an unknown assailant. The search for the killer sent Isaiah plunging into despair and nearly destroyed his life. Even with a flourishing career, a new dog, and near-iconic status as a PI in his hometown, East Long Beach, he has to begin the hunt again-or lose his mind.A case takes him and his volatile, dubious sidekick, Dodson, to Vegas, where Chinese gangsters and a terrifying seven-foot loan shark are stalking a DJ and her screwball boyfriend. If Isaiah doesn't find the two first, they'll be murdered. Awaiting the outcome is the love of IQ's life: fail, and he'll lose her. Isaiah's quest is fraught with treachery, menace, and startling twists, and it will lead him to the mastermind behind his brother's death, Isaiah's own sinister Moriarty.With even more action, suspense, and mind-bending mysteries than Isaiah's first adventures, Righteous is a rollicking, ingenious thrill ride.

display_description "Isaiah Quintabe has, against many odds, built a proper life for himself: a respected detective in his hometown of East Long Beach, a well-kept home, a growing library, and even a rehabilitated horse-sized pit bull (courtesy of his previous client). But something is wrong: the death of his older brother nearly a decade ago has sent him down a dark path, one that he's never truly been able to escape. RIGHTEOUS is the story of Isaiah's investigation of his brother's death, a quest that will lead him to his greatest adversary, a man who may be IQ's own Moriarty. RIGHTEOUS is also the story of Sarita, Isaiah's older brother's girlfriend, for whom Isaiah feels a lasting, troubling love. Sarita's younger sister, an erratic DJ and gambling addict, has gone missing in Las Vegas, with a frightening bookie, Chinese Triad gangsters, and her own deadbeat boyfriend hot on her tail. On the case once more with Dodson, Isaiah's fast-talking, don't-call-me-a-sidekick partner, mayhem is sure to ensue. With gun battles, car chases, and twice as many mental puzzles as before, RIGHTEOUS is a rollicking, ingenious, and thrilling roller coaster ride. It swerves from the streets of South Central to the hotels of Beverly Hills, from the casinos and massage parlors of Las Vegas to the mountains of the desert Southwest. IQ is back, and he's badder than ever"--
