IQ by Joe Ide.  They call him IQ. He's a loner and a high school dropout, his unassuming nature disguising a relentless determination and a fierce intelligence. He charges his clients whatever they can afford, which might be a set of tires or a homemade casserole. To get by, he's forced to take on clients that can pay.  East Long Beach. The LAPD is barely keeping up with the neighborhood's high crime rate.  A resident of one of LA's toughest neighborhoods uses his blistering intellect to solve the crimes the LAPD ignores.
