Christopher is exceptional at maths but struggles to interpret everyday life - not made easier when he is under suspicion of killing Wellington, Mrs Shears' dog. Christopher resolves to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, despite the fact he has never before ventured alone beyond the end of his road, detests being touched and distrusts strangers.
