Dr. Waters (“You can call me Waters. Everyone else does”) is the obvious innocent suspect in Chris Knopf’s novel, You’re Dead. He’s not dead, but his boss very clearly is. And the evidence, such as it is, keeps mounting as if Waters had truly killed his friend.

Waters specializes in analyzing personalities, specifically the personalities of people his boss might employ. He’s good at his job. Maybe that’s because he’s good at analyzing himself—an autistic child, grown up to successful adult. He al

This one starts immediately with the crime and goes uphill from there.

I love the main character's voice: a very high-functioning Autistic man who got his doctorate in psychology because he became so good at reading others (without ever really quite becoming a neuro-typical). He's not a cop, but he has a skill set uniquely qualifying him to outwit a sadistic killer out to first frame him for the murder of his boss, then kill him outright.

I enjoyed this book as I have many of his books. It was a good fast paced thriller. It was a quite complex mystery with an interesting group of characters.
