Righteous: An IQ Novel by Joe Ide, 326 pages.
IQ, the 2016 novel by Ide that introduced Quintabe, the Sherlockian detective was a crisp, quick moving book. Righteous is a little bit more muddled. Isaiah teams up with his long-time neighbor and sometime friend and partner, Dodson. The book seems to be redefining their relationship, pointing towards a more structured working relationship in future novels (just a guess). Isaiah seeks to help out the woman he loved when he was a child. Sarita was dating Isaiah's brother before he was killed, and Isaiah has long been smitten with her. When she comes to him seeking help with her wayward sister, Isaiah is happy to have a chance to help. An interesting book.
