I fell for Colin, enough so that I didn't even mind the kind of cheesy setup for the next mystery. This boy may be one of a kind, but it's clear that "Colin Fischer" is intended to be the start of long relationship.

Synopsis

SOLVING CRIME, ONE FACIAL EXPRESSION AT A TIME

Colin Fischer cannot stand to be touched. He does not like the color blue. He needs index cards to recognize facial expressions.

But when a gun is found in the school cafeteria, interrupting a female classmate's birthday celebration, Colin is the only for the investigation. It's up to him to prove that Wayne Connelly, the school bully and Colin's frequent tormenter, didn't bring the gun to school. After all, Wayne didn't have frosting on his hands, and there was white chocolate frosting found on the grip of the smoking gun...

Colin Fischer is a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, and his story--as told by the screenwriters of X-Men: First Class and Thor--is perfect for readers who have graduated from Encyclopedia Brown and who are ready to consider the greatest mystery of all: what other people are thinking and feeling.


From the Hardcover edition.

As more information about autistic syndromes emerges, it will be interesting to see whether authors are less likely to associate autistic characters with mystery.
