read: IQ (4 stars)

IQIQ by Joe Ide
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

How does a bright kid from the bad part of town get involved in helping a successful rap singer figure out who is out to kill him? That's actually two different stories and we get both of them told in alternating chapters in this book. This is a neat trick to pull off. And it is extra remarkable in those moments in the earlier timeline that remain suspenseful even though you know the main character survives.

IQ is a thoroughly original version of Sherlock Holmes for a modern generation.

Disclosure: Thank you to Netgalley and Mulholland Books for providing a free copy of this book in return for my honest review.
