About this book

Book Summary

A professional fact-finder finds himself stymied when applying his particular skills to a confusing case: A client who's married to someone she doesn't know.

For Samuel Hoenig, Asperger's isn't so much a syndrome as it is a set of personality traits. And as the sole proprietor of a business called Questions Answered, Samuel's put his personality traits to good use, successfully answering every question he's ever been asked.

When his newest client asks about the true identity of her so-called husband, Samuel recruits his former associate Janet Washburn for insight into a subject that's beyond his grasp - marriage.

Working as a team seems to be the right approach ... until the inscrutable spouse is found dead in Samuel's office. Feeling like he's been taken for a fool, Samuel is more than willing to answer a new question posed by an unexpected inquirer: who killed the unfamiliar husband?

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. Captivating ... Readers will look forward to new challenges for Samuel in his next adventure." - Publishers Weekly

"Just as Samuel grows Questions Answered, Copperman (who as Cohen writes nonfiction books about Asperger's) continues to grow Samuel, making him just as quirky but more appealing than in his debut." - Kirkus

"Samuel is a fascinating character who has learned various coping methods to compensate for his inability to read people. His second adventure will captivate readers as the suspects begin to pile up." - Library Journal
