Rubbernecker - Belinda Bauer Patrick Fort suffers from Aspergers syndrome and he finds it difficult to communicate and interact with others. Patrick is a medical student and during the examination of a "body" he questions the cause of death and believes a foul act has been committed. This is a very clever book and the writing and humour (because it must be said that AS can be the cause of some very funny occurrences) are what set this crime story apart from so many others....A coma patient is locked in a world of silence and Patrick must discover and solve the mystery of his studies, and the eventual sudden death of the coma patient. To say much more would spoil the surprises that lie within this most unusual and excellent portrayal of AS under the guise of a first class crime story.
