For ten years, something has gnawed at Isaiah Quintabe's gut and kept him up nights: Ten years ago, when Isaiah was just a boy, his brother was killed by an unknown assailant. Even with a flourishing career, a new dog, and near-iconic status as a PI in his hometown, East Long Beach, he has to begin the hunt again—or lose his mind. On the heels of the Edgar Award nominated debut IQ, Isaiah's second case takes him and his dubious sidekick, Dodson, to Las Vegas, where Chinese gangsters and a terrifying seven-foot loan shark are stalking a DJ and her screwball boyfriend. If Isaiah's quest is fraught with treachery, menace, and startling twists, and he may be closer than he knows to the mastermind behind his brother's death.
