"Isaiah Quintabe has, against many odds, built a proper life for himself: a respected detective in his hometown of East Long Beach, a well-kept home, a growing library, and even a rehabilitated horse-sized pit bull (courtesy of his previous client). But something is wrong: the death of his older brother nearly a decade ago has sent him down a dark path, one that he's never truly been able to escape. Righteous is the story of Isaiah's investigation of his brother's death, a quest that will lead him to his greatest adversary, a man who may be IQ's own Moriarty. Righteous is also the story of Sarita, Isaiah's older brother's girlfriend, for whom Isaiah feels a lasting, troubling love. Sarita's younger sister, an erratic DJ and gambling addict, has gone missing in Las Vegas, with a frightening bookie, Chinese Triad gangsters, and her own deadbeat boyfriend hot on her tail. On the case once more with Dodson, Isaiah's fast-talking, don't-call-me-a-sidekick partner, mayhem is sure to ensue."--

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.
