Synopsis

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.

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.
