From now through January, we’re giving away some of our favorite books of 2016.

Up first is one of our favorite mysteries of 2016: IQ by Joe Ide.


Author Joe Ide used his own history, growing up as an Asian kid in South Central Los Angeles, to create IQ, a new mystery set in a tough L.A. neighborhood about Isaiah Quintabe, nicknamed IQ,who is determined to help find justice and solve unsolved crimes the police don’t care about. Quintabe is inspired by Sherlock Holmes and the book has already been compared to a West Coast version of The Wire, so perhaps it’s not surprising that the television rights to IQ have already sold.

We’ve got three copies to giveaway to U.S. and Canada residents. To enter, fill out the form below and sign-up for one of our email lists. To help you pick, there are short descriptions below. Try it for awhile and if you aren’t into it, unsubscribing is no-hassle. No harm, no foul.
