SMOKE by Joe Ide, read by Zeno Robinson

Behind the Mic with AudioFile Magazine

Zeno Robinson returns to narrate the fifth in Ide’s IQ series. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Robinson’s skilled narration that grounds this audiobook using his gift for dialogue and skill with action sequences. Robinson eases listeners inside Isaiah Quintabe’s (IQ’s) weary mind as he departs L.A. to look for peace and rejuvenation in Northern California. But trouble follows, and Robinson accelerates the tempo as IQ traps a blackmailer, catches a serial killer, and prevents corporate backstabbing. Robinson is terrific with dialogue, and thankfully there’s lots of it.

Episode 15: Character Sketches w/ Joe Ide

Gold & Great - The Kollaboration SF Podcast

Author Joe Ide learned the power of observation early on, growing up as a quiet Japanese kid in South Central LA. He eventually harnessed that curiosity of other people into his award winning IQ series, following Isaiah Quintabe, a Black private eye who takes the cases in his community the cops won’t take. Now being made into a TV show EP’d by Snoop Dogg(!), Josh asks Joe how his writing has been influenced by his unique childhood, feeling like an outsider, and bringing new perspectives to the mystery and crime genres.
