Samuel Hoenig runs a business called Questions Answered. It's not a detective agency; Samuel just likes to answer questions, provided they are phrased in the correct manner. He has Asperger's and details are important to him. But his newest client's question intrigues him: To whom is she married? Relationships are hard for Samuel, so he has to enlist the assistance of Janet Washburn, his former associate (introduced in Book 1, The Question of the Missing Head), in order to confer about the ins and outs of marriage. When the aforementioned spouse is found dead in his office, Samuel feels someone is taking advantage of him. Far too many people benefit from the death of Ollie Lewis, but who is the primary beneficiary?
VERDICT 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.
