SummaryAdd a Summary
In first person narative form, 15 year old Asperger afflicted Christopher describes his "detecting" methods in the "Case of the Murdered French Poodle". Christopher finds the neighbor's dog killed with a garden fork. And with this start, Christopher -- who has never ventured further than the local store down the street before -- procedes from the British countryside to London. There, the story reaches its emotionally touching -- yet disturbing -- conclusion. While not possessing the normal social skills of someone his age, which causes many relationship problems with friends and family, Christopher still is an expert in science and mathematics. Geometry, relativity, and advanced topics in prime number theory all come into play during
Christopher's "dectecting". The essence of the story: Will Christopher be able to mentally detach the chaos surrounding his personal life with his "detecting" in the "Case of the Murdered French Poodle"?
