This error comes from the following fragment in lread.c:read1

    case '?':
      {
        int modifiers;
        int next_char;
        int ok;

        c = READCHAR;
        if (c < 0)
          end_of_file_error ();

        /* Accept `single space' syntax like (list ? x) where the
           whitespace character is SPC or TAB.
           Other literal whitespace like NL, CR, and FF are not accepted,
           as there are well-established escape sequences for these.  */
        if (c == ' ' || c == '\t')
          return make_number (c);

        if (c == '\\')
          c = read_escape (readcharfun, 0);
        modifiers = c & CHAR_MODIFIER_MASK;
        c &= ~CHAR_MODIFIER_MASK;
        if (CHAR_BYTE8_P (c))
          c = CHAR_TO_BYTE8 (c);
        c |= modifiers;

        next_char = READCHAR;
        ok = (next_char <= 040
              || (next_char < 0200
                  && strchr ("\"';()[]#?`,.", next_char) != NULL));
        UNREAD (next_char);
        if (ok)
          return make_number (c);

        invalid_syntax ("?");  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
      }

Can you step through this in a debugger and see what character is seen
in next_char at the end of this snippet, and what value is in `c' at
that point, when it fails?  The function read_escape called by this
fragment could also be of interest.
