I, Q is a series of young adult fiction mystery books. The first three are written by Roland Smith and the fourth is co-written by Smith and Michael P. Spradlin. They concern a thirteen year-old boy named "Quest" – whose nickname is "Q" – and whose parents are well-known rock musicians. He and his stepsister Angela get involved with the U.S. Secret Service and the Israeli Mossad and are protected by Tyrone Boone and his group SOS (Some Old Spooks).
The first book in the series, Independence Hall, begins at the wedding when Q's mom and Angela's dad get married in San Francisco . The family then leaves for a year-long concert tour around America, beginning in Philadelphia. However, they are being watched. They meet Boone, a retired CIA agent, and their lives will never be the same again. They meet other people working for the Secret Service and they are trying to find out why they want Angela. In Book One: Independence Hall, we met Q and his stepsister, Angela. We also met their pop star parents, Blaze and Roger; the SOS team protecting the family; and we met the main players of the Mossad team that is following them. They include Eben, who wants to avenge his brother; Carma and Devorah, who work for Eben; and Ziv, who started out working for Eben but was actually working for Malak, Angela's supposedly dead mother, or Anmar, Malak's twin sister. We also learn that Angela's mother, Malak Tucker, is still alive and it was her twin sister Anmar, a terrorist known as "the Leopard", that died in the explosion at Independence Hall, posing as her dead sister.
In this book, Q and Angela, along with the rest of the SOS team, are trying to save Bethany (the president's daughter) from the ghost cell's clutches. Meanwhile, Malak, a.k.a. The Leopard, is rising up higher and higher in the ghost cell's ranks. But will she be able to take them down? Combine a raging storm, car bombs, and an agile dog, and you have I, Q, Kitty Hawk. Q and Angela are kidnapped.
Continuing the fast-paced adventure series, Q and Angela now know each other's strengths and weakness so they can foil the spies and kidnappers who continue to pursue them while they travel with their parents on a rock concert tour across the U.S. The step brother and sister now have the help of the U. S. President, J. R. Culpepper, and his son, Willingham Culpepper, or P.K. (President's Kid) for short. The president has given them special watches with his secret number engraved on them in case of an emergency. Q and Angela hope they will not have to use that number, but in this book they may have to. Meanwhile, P.K. researches in the White House archives for clues about the mysterious Boone, who is the head security guard and roadie on the tour but also supervises a secretive group of former spies who have the technology, intelligence, persistence, and muscle-power to continue to thwart the mysterious Ghost Cell. The adventures continue as the spies take Angela's mother (disguised as The Leopard, a sinister spy) to San Antonio to the ranch of one of the top five spies in the mysterious Ghost Cell. The rock concert continues to San Antonio as well where the parents, in the chart topping rock group Match, are going to hold a free concert in front of the legendary Alamo historic site.
