Christopher John Francis Boone, this novel's self-appointed sleuth, is a detective like no other. For one thing, he is fifteen years old; for another, his sharp, unemotional focus has convinced many readers (and even publishers) that he occupies some niche on the Asperger Spectrum, a connection that author Mark Haddon denies. Whatever the roots of his condition, Christopher's methodical approach to a pet homicide has drawn in readers and award-givers ever since its 2003 release. More than two million copies of the novel have been sold; it has garnered two prestigious Whitbread Awards and a film is planned. A featured trade paperback and NOOK Book.
