Atone for your errors and misdeeds. Use your brain and your talents to make of yourself something you like and respect, no matter what your circumstances are. Although the story takes a winding route to get there, the messages get through.
IQ (Isaiah Quintabe) takes on cases in high crime areas that would otherwise go unhandled: abuse of children, kidnapping, etc. He is intelligent, quiet, thoughtful, perceptive…a likeable protagonist. Some of his clients are less likeable – mostly the ones who have the money to pay the bills.
What I like:
The moniker IQ, short for Isaiah Quintabe.
What I don’t like:
The dialogue is less than believable.
IQ makes for an interesting, unusual character, one with the potential to improve with each successive book if this becomes a series.
