HE CANNOT STAND TO BE TOUCHED. AND HE DETESTS THE COLOR YELLOW. ALTHOUGH GIFTED WITH A SUPERBLY LOGICAL BRAIN, FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD CHRISTOPHER IS AUTISTIC AND EVERYDAY INTERACTIONS AND ADMONISHMENTS HAVE LITTLE MEANING FOR HIM. HE LIVES ON PATTERNS, RULES, AND A DIAGRAM KEPT IN HIS POCKET.THEN ONE DAY, A NEIGHBOR S DOG WELLINGTON, IS KILLED AND HIS CAREFULLY CONSTRUCTED UNIVERSE IS THREATENED. CHRISTOPHER SETS OUT TO SOLVE THE MURDER IN THE STYLE OF HIS FAVORITE (LOGICAL) DETECTIVE, SHERLOCK HOLMES.
