One of the Best Books of the Year - NPR, BookRiot, Suspense Magazine, Amazon, South Florida Sun Sentinel
"Joe Ide is the best new discovery I've come across in a long time. And Isaiah Quintabe is the kind of sleuth not seen on the mystery landscape before. Righteous is a riveting follow up to IQ."―Michael Connelly, author of The Late Show
"Last year, Joe Ide became the best thing to happen to mystery writing in a very long time. . . . There are a lot of fine reasons to discover Ide's work. . . . He writes thumbnail descriptions that rival Elmore Leonard's. . . . His dialogue, much of it unprintable here, has bite that puts him in the Winslow/Lehane league. . . . The world of these books is one of constant trash talk, and Ide delivers it with style. . . . It may be time for Ide to lay to rest Isaiah's Marcus obsession and give him other things to think about. I can't wait to find out what they'll be."―Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Excellent... Ide keeps Righteous on a righteous path of compelling storytelling, allowing his characters to flourish while exploring the worst of human nature. Never once does Righteous go over the top as Ide keeps each plot point chillingly realistic... Ide's debut IQ showed what a skillful writer he is. Righteous elevates the author--and his characters--to a new level."―Oline Cogdill, The Associated Press
"Ide's sense of humor, his effervescent dialogue, and his knack for moments of emotion [are] all still present here, terrific news for readers."―Charles Finch, USA Today
"He's the real deal."―Carl Hiaasen
"Call it what you will--ungraphic manga, comedy noir--but IQ, Joe Ide's debut featuring Isaiah Quintabe, was definitely original. . . . Righteous, the second IQ novel, is every bit as solid and smart as the first. . . . Ide writes wild dialogue, creates totally original characters and makes me laugh out loud at two in the morning. What more can you ask?"―Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail [Canada]
"Ide is the real thing. This column was late, because I couldn't stop reading my advance copy."―Allison K. Hill, Long Beach Press-Telegram
"Outstanding . . . Ide again makes his hero's deductive brilliance plausible, while presenting an emotionally engaging story that doesn't shy away from presenting the bleakest aspects of humanity."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Still overall I really enjoyed another outing with the young Sherlock Holmes of East Long Beach; and just as in the original the Watson of the stories is, in many ways, an even more brilliant creation. Dodson is a delight.
