How do you solve a mystery when you can't remember the clues? 'A rich tapestry... distinctive and compelling' Observer `A beautiful, original novel, at once funny and tragic and brave' Sarah Pinborough There are three things you need to know about Jasper. 1. He sees the world completely differently. 2. He can't recognise faces - not even his own. 3. He is the only witness to the murder of his neighbour, Bee Larkham. But it's hard to catch a murderer when you can't recognise their face... An extraordinary and compelling debut which will make you see the world in a way you've never seen it before
