Winner of the Whitbread Book of the Year Prize.
Christopher has Asperger’s Syndrome. His brain isn’t wired up for people. It’s wired up for maths, science, Sherlock Holmes novels and other geeky delights. When his neighbour’s dog is murdered, he decides to solve the mystery and write a detective thriller about it. But how do you solve a mystery when everyone is a mystery to you? And when you’ve never been further than the end of the road on your own? As Christopher starts digging for facts, he brings to light some very weird truths that turn his world upside down…
- A powerful modern classic that has inspired a host of imitators
- The first book to cast an Asperger’s character in the hero’s role

- For fans of Wonder, The London Eye Mystery and Can You See Me?
