One woman. Five personalities. Private investigator IQ is back to piece together a Newport Beach murder with an eyewitness who gives “people person” a whole new meaning.

Cristiana is the daughter of the biggest arms dealer on the West Coast, Angus Byrne. She’s also the sole witness and number one suspect in the murder of her boyfriend, found dead in her Newport Beach boutique. Isaiah Quintabe is coerced into taking the case to prove her innocence. If he can’t, Angus will harm the brilliant PI’s new girlfriend, ending her career.

The catch: Christiana has multiple personalities. Among them, a naïve, beautiful shopkeeper, an obnoxious drummer in a rock band, and a wanton seductress.

Isaiah’s dilemma: no one personality saw the entire incident. To find out what really happened the night of the murder, Isaiah must piece together clues from each of the personalities . . . before the cops close in on him.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hit men, henchmen, bagmen—they all wander in and out of a highly diverting book that crackles with life and vividness.” New York Times Book Review
“Ide is a remarkable writer, inhabiting the personae and rendering the back stories of a diverse assortment of characters.” Wall Street Journal
“The author is skilled at developing the humanity of every character, regardless of their perspective…That allows Hi Five to stand on its own for first-time readers, even as the series deepens longtime fans’ engagement.” Los Angeles Times
“Zeno Robinson narrates…a messy story with many subplots, but it’s still completely entertaining, thanks to the sharp writing and Robinson’s stellar performance. While providing narrative clarity and excellent pacing, Robinson expertly voices a large cast of characters to the point where it’s hard to believe he’s this audiobook’s sole narrator. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Stellar…readers will root for Ide’s distinctive lead every step of the way.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Ide goes dark with the skill of a noir master, leaving Isaiah in a very bad place and the reader gasping for breath. A stunning change of pace from one of crime fiction’s new stars.” Booklist (starred review)
“Mystery and detection compete with a gorgeous swarm of supercharged personalities on their own wild rides.” Kirkus Reviews
“Isaiah Quintabe has had some wild cases in the past, but nothing like this latest gig working for notorious criminal and all-around bad guy Angus Byrne…Add to that a Cambodian street gang and some illegal arms dealing and you’ve got just another day in the life of East Long Beach’s most acclaimed private eye.” Library Journal
