Samuel Hoenig answers questions for a living. And as a man with Asperger's syndrome, his unique personality helps him ferret out almost any answer there is. But his latest question is a rather odd one: who stole a preserved head from the Garden State Cryonics Institute?
Arriving at the scene of the crime accompanied by his new colleague, Ms. Washburn, Samuel finds that what started out as a theft has escalated to murder. With suspects and motives emerging at a rapid rate, one final question remains: can Samuel's powers of deduction uncover a killer in the face of overwhelming odds?

More please!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Would definitely recommend. I loved the interaction between the hero and the leading women.

What other book might you compare The Question of the Missing Head to, and why?

This was described as what the protagonist of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night" would do as an adult and it was just that.

Any additional comments?

I hope this is the first of many. A joy to listen to.

Surprisingly good!

I wasn't sure what to expect but I thoroughly enjoyed a new twist on a mystery story. The fact that the narrator/hero has Asperger's syndrome was used quite effectively to tell the story from a unique perspective. I was pleasantly surprised. The only real flaw in my view is that the police were portrayed as unrealistically ineffective, but it kept the tone of the story light and a bit humorous. I look forward to the next book in the series!

The curious incident of....

If you ever wanted to know what would happen to Christopher Boone(The curious incident of the dog in the night-time) if he grew up in america and became a detective(somewhat) then this book is for you. A very endearing character. looking forward to the next one. also, very well narrated.
