Isaiah Quintabe has built a proper life for himself: respected in his hometown of East Long Beach, a well-kept home, a growing library, and even a rehabilitated horse-sized pit bull. But the death of his older brother nearly a decade ago sent him down a dark path, one that he's never truly been able to escape. IQ has a lasting, troubling love for Sarita, his late brother's girlfriend. When Sarita's younger sister, an erratic DJ and gambling addict, goes missing in Las Vegas, with a frightening bookie, Chinese Triad gangsters, and her own deadbeat boyfriend hot on her tail, mayhem is sure to ensue.

Compelling characters from the tough side of town. The writing, like one of the characters, is "sure and soulful."

This series is getting great reviews including Janet Maslin (The New York Times) "Aggressively entertaining plotting is paired with the kind of dialogue for which readers love Don Winslow. ...a Los Angeles classic right from the start."

I really liked his first IQ book, and I found this one entertaining as well. The chronology was unnecessarily choppy, jumping around in the IQ story for no apparent reason. But the character development is particularly interesting. Will Isaiah find a worthy paramour in the girl from the wrecking yard? Will he and Dodson find a way to work together? I guess we'll find out in book three.

Ok, but not outstanding. I had the feeling reading it I'd heard this story before and didn't get anything new out of it. The main character was one of the strong points, but overall the writing style was pretty blah.

I *really* wanted to like this story. I like the character a lot, but the story is much too fragmented spinning off into different plot elements that I found distracting.
