The main character in this series has Ausbergers Syndrome - which gives him a unique perspective on solving problems as he struggles with difficult social interactions. Samuel Honnig has formed a business to answer questions and he does so with the perspective and intense focus that comes with his syndrome. When a question brought to him becomes a murder investigation he continues his sleuthing with deductions that would do credit to Sherlock Holmes. Samuel does not understand most of the social activity around him, so he relies on social training and advice from his mother to muddle through his interactions with other people. A charming and practical young woman in need of a job becomes his assistant and her presence provides the anchor he often needs to deal with a world that doesn't make sense. The mystery is secondary to the interesting perspective of the main character, but it is a mystery indeed. This is the second book in the series and I highly recommend both of them if you like character development and problem solving without a lot of blood and gore.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I enjoyed the characters in this book but almost immediately you can figure out who the murderer is so that diminished the story. I am still excited for the next installment.

What did you like most about The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband?
The way people think that Samuel is stupid...which is a very bad mistake to make.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Janet Washburn. She just knows how Samuel's condition works, and has that calming effect on him.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
When Samuel got arrested.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. But can be listen to in short spurts just as well.
Any additional comments?
I love the Asperger's mysteries. They are well plotted and written. With great narration from Mark Boyett.
