Christopher is 15 and lives in Swindon with his father. He has Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. He is obsessed with maths, science and Sherlock Holmes but finds it hard to understand other people. When he discovers a dead dog on a neighbour's lawn he decides to solve the mystery and write a detective thriller about it. As in all good detective stories, however, the more he unearths, the deeper the mystery gets - for both Christopher and the rest of his family.
i have read many books in my life and this is in my top 5. the story is very good. its a must buy. the story describes how the mind of a curios 15 year old boy works. its very hilarious. while solving the mystery of the dead dog he uncovers many truths about his life and then goes on an adventurous journey.
