Asperger's character on Mystery!

Inspector Lewis Sunday night featured a character who had Asperger's (Episode title: And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea). The character reminded me very much of the hero in my recent release, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie. He never looked straight into anyone's eyes, he knew what time he arrived anywhere to the exact minute and how long he stayed, was an artist who could draw anyone rapidly after a quick glance, he knew the social things he was "supposed" to do, but didn't really understand or much care why, and he was the master of the nonsequiter. The actor who portrayed him did a wonderful job.

You can watch the show online until September 13:

I have so much enjoyed reading and now re-reading your Captain Lacey mysteries. Have you finished with him, or do we get to look forward to more stories? I somehow feel we haven't quite wrapped up everything. Anyway, hope you'll let me know.
