Publisher's Summary

Solving crime, one facial expression at a time

Colin Fischer cannot stand to be touched. He does not like the color blue. He needs index cards to recognize facial expressions.

But when a gun is found in the school cafeteria, interrupting a female classmate's birthday celebration, Colin is the only for the investigation. It's up to him to prove that Wayne Connelly, the school bully and Colin's frequent tormenter, didn't bring the gun to school. After all, Wayne didn't have didn't have frosting on his hands, and there was white chocolate frosting found on the grip of the smoking gun....

Colin Fischer is a modern-day Sherlock Holmes, and his story - as told by the screenwriters of X-Men: First Class and Thor - is perfect for listeners who have graduated from Encyclopedia Brown and who are ready to consider the greatest mystery of all: what other people are thinking and feeling.

Kinda like a children’s book

The book is interesting overall. Those footnotes are funny yet factual. Always love Jesse’s performance. His tone and speed really match the characteristics of the roles. But I do wonder if this book is for children. The twist cannot even be called “twist”. It’s too simple and plain. But anyway, the perspective from Collin is really interesting, those analyses and stuff. Overall, it’s not bad.
