Granular space time and frame dragging

    If there were only one rotating massive body and a detector in the universe, would the detector be able to detect that body due to frame dragging, i am imagining the body acting on granular space time akin to a whirlpool,
    were space time is disturbed in a spiral motion.
    I am not talking about black holes, just any sub black hole mass.

    Do you have Newton's bucket thought experiment in mind?
