IQ is BACK! Sherlock Holmes meets The Wire in this fast-paced crime thriller from EDGAR-shortlisted Joe Ide

'Joe Ide is the best new discovery I've come across in a long time' Michael Connelly

'In a way, the hate felt good. You were righteous, godlike, the dispenser of justice . . .'
Super-smart sleuth Isaiah Quintabe - IQ to his friends - has built a mostly respectable life for himself, helping out friends and neighbours when he can and taking the occasional case to make ends meet. But there is one mystery that still haunts him almost ten years later - did his brother really die in a hit-and-run or was there more to the story behind his death?

IQ has been approached by his brother's former girlfriend Sarita, whose younger sister, 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. Accompanied once more by his fast-talking, don't-call-me-a-sidekick partner Dodson, IQ heads off for the casinos and massage parlours of Las Vegas. His quest takes an unexpected turn when he meets a criminal mastermind who knows something about the murky circumstances that surrounded his brother's death. But when Isaiah learns the truth, what will he do with it?

'One of the most remarkable debuts I've read...Deliciously quirky, written with exceptional panache and a fine ear for dialogue, it introduces the world to an LA private detective who might just become the Holmes of the 21st century' DAILY MAIL

The game's afoot once again for 20-something genius sleuth Isaiah Quintabe, who has two cases to deal with: one leading him to mayhem in Las Vegas, the other to the man responsible for his brother's death. Things are pretty much as we left them with Isaiah in Ide's acclaimed debut mystery/thriller, IQ. He's still leading a mostly solitary life in his East Long Beach, California, neighborhood, using his agile intellect to help old ladies find lost jewelry, chase away abusive ex-husbands, or deal with volatile gang members who think he's too smart for his own good. The one case he'd most like to crack involves the hit-and-run death of his beloved older brother, Marcus. Just as he's finally figured out that Marcus' death was no accident, IQ gets a call from drop-dead-gorgeous Sarita Van, his late brother's one-time fiancee, who's now a high-powered attorney. She wants him to find her younger sister, Janine, a Vegas-based club DJ who shares a gambling addiction with her ne'er-do-well boyfriend, Benny. They're on the run from Leo, a vicious loan shark, whose collector in chief is a 7-foot-tall, broad-shouldered, dead-eyed Canadian named Balthazar. Isaiah's only backup on this mission is his short-fused but dauntless neighborhood buddy, Dodson, whose own plate is full trying to make his food truck profitable and waiting for his wife to give birth to their first child. Once on the Vegas strip, this post-millennial Holmes and Watson get far more than they bargained for as they have to fight and think their way through waves of Chinese mob muscle led by a baleful sex trafficker leaning heavily on Sarita and Janine's craven, corrupt father. Ide weaves the often antic events of this case in tandem with Isaiah's lonesome inquiry into his brother's death; a pursuit that leads him to the sinister Seb Habimana, an East African refugee who's made his mark in Isaiah's hood in shady real estate dealings and shadier money laundering operations. . . [Ide] keeps your head in the game throughout with his witty style and edgy storytelling, both of which show greater assurance than in his first novel-and even bigger potential for the future. A thrilling follow-up to one of the more auspicious detective-series debuts in recent memory. — Kirkus
Ide manages to combine light and dark in wholly unpredictable ways, blending comic capering with real-life bloodletting in a manner that diminishes neither and taps a vein of deep emotion lurking amid the laugh lines and spurts of violence. Anyone who loves Thomas Perry or Timothy Hallinan needs to hop on Ide's bandwagon while there's still room to sit — Bill Ott, Booklist
Joe Ide [is] the best thing to happen to mystery writing in a very long time — Janet Maslin, New York Times

Little Eve

Catriona Ward
Authors:
Catriona Ward

Eve and Dinah are everything to one another, never parted day or night. They are raised among the Children, a commune of strays and orphans ruled by the mysterious patriarch, the adder. All they know is the grey Isle of Altnaharra which sits in the black sea off the wildest coast of Scotland. Eve loves the free, savage life of the Isle. She is untroubled save by her dreams; of soft arms and a woman singing. She offers her blood in the standing stones as sacrifice. Eve is convinced that she is the next adder, heir to the Isle. But Dinah longs for something other. The world is at war and cannot be kept at bay. As the solitude of Altnaharra is broken, Eve's faith and sanity fracture. In a great storm in the depths of winter, as the old year dies, she murders the Children among the standing stones. Eve dies too, while making her escape. But Dinah lives to take up the tale.Cast out, alone, Dinah must make her way through the strange world beyond the Isle. Battling grief and incomprehension she searches for her place. But Dinah cannot seem to leave Altnaharra behind. Some deep part of her does not wish to. The adder and little Eve are calling. Eve and Dinah's stories contradict and intertwine. Past and present converge, hurtling towards a devastating conclusion. Only one woman can be telling the truth. Who is guilty, who innocent? Set against the distant thunder of the First World War, this is a chilling exploration of corroding power and a lyrical journey through the reaches of the human spirit. Little Eve is a sinuous elegant thriller that will slip its coils about you and hold.

Welcome to Hell?

John McManus
Authors:
John McManus

Whenever people in Britain talk about Turkish football, they don't tend to talk about camaraderie, hospitality and humour. They mention banners proclaiming 'Welcome to hell'. Or Leeds United fans stabbed to death on an Istanbul street. If they do consider the football, then it's not for long. The Turkish league is viewed as an elephant's graveyard for players and managers past their prime: Dirk Kuyt, Graham Souness, Didier Drogba, Robin van Persie. But Graham Souness has faded from memory for most Turkish football fans, and Turkish teams regularly compete at the latter stages of European competition. There is clearly a gap between perception and reality.So what is Turkish football really about? Through visits to far-flung clubs, encounters with characterful players and experiences at riotous matches, John McManus makes the case for defining football in Turkey by more than thuggery and washed-up superstars. From the elite training facilities of Istanbul to dusty pitches on the Anatolian plain, Welcome to Hell? offers a unique take on this rich, funny and alluring football culture, at once both familiar and miles apart from the game in Britain.

Turning The Wheel of Your Zodiac Soul

John Wadsworth
Authors:
John Wadsworth

How to use the zodiac to manifest your life the way you were born to live it.Turning The Wheel of Your Zodiac Soul is the brand new approach and twelve-stage programme from leading astrologer, John Wadsworth. Teaching you how to use the Zodiac as a path to wholeness, John's method will reveal to you 'the revelation of you in the totality of who you are.'Drawing on over two thousand years of astrological tradition, John presents the zodiac soul using a wheel analogy: it is a wheel that is supposed to turn, but will inevitably get stuck and falter during the course of life's many challenges- whether these be around personal relationships, financial issues, health, career pressures or a low sense of self-worth. Through his programme, John reassuringly shows that these challenges all have their place in the wheel, and that our underlying fears and self-defeating behaviour patterns driving them can all be addressed and compassionately transformed. With John's assistance, you will learn to identify where the wheel gets stuck in your own life and get it turning again. Turning The Wheel of Your Zodiac Soul will offer you a way of making significant changes, guiding you to manifest the life you were born to live.
