What happens in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time?

A kid (Christopher) with autism finds his next door neighbour's dog dead in the garden. He sets it as his task to find out who killed the dog and why, and decides to right a book about it. only then His dad gets really angry at this because he found out what he was doing about this murder case, we later find out that this is because Chris's father was in fact the one who killed the dog.

He also told Christopher that his mother was dead, but Christopher later finds out that his mother is very much in fact alive and living in London, and he goes and lives with her for a while. Then him and his mother drive back to their house in swindon, however there is a lot of traffic on the way so it takes them longer. Then they arrive at the house around one in the morning, and Chris runs up to his room; when the clock strikes 6:30am Chris here's his father come in and pushes his bed to the door so that he couldn't come in and as he is listening with his ear pushed up against the door all he can hear is them screaming at each other. Then Chris's dad leaves for a week or two and Chris and his mum get the house for a while; but Chris is devastated when he can't take his A level this year; as Chris arrives at school he suddenly cheers up when he can his A level for maths after all. As Chris's father came to see him; he was so proud of Chris for taking his exams and told him that he will do fine. one week later his mother was told that she had to move out but she couldn't because she had barely any money to pay rents for a flat; while this was happening Chris was wondering if his father was going to get arrested for killing the dog; turns out he hadn't. When Chris was getting picked up from his father's house he refused to talk to him, so his father made a deal with him that he would help Christopher trust him with all his heart like the old days. Then to make Christopher believe that he was being nice and trustful his dad bought him a golden retriever that is only two months old; and Christopher loved the dog and decided to call his new dog sandy. When things got back to normal and there was no more drama Chris got books for his A level so that when he was 0lder he could become a successful scientist's; and for some reason he already knew he would achieve this, with all his effort in school!
