Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Boston, 1976. Daniel Fitzsimmons is just sixteen years old and totally on his own--his parents are long dead, and his beloved brother, Harry, is off at Harvard, the star of the football team. When Harry is murdered, Daniel wrestles not only with inconsolable grief but with strange new powers he never knew he possessed. Powers he's not sure he can control. Detectives William Barkley 'Bark' Jones and Tommy Dillon are assigned to Harry's case. The veteran partners thought they'd seen it all, but they are stunned when Daniel wanders into the crime scene. Even stranger, Daniel claims to have known the details of his brother's murder before it ever happened. The investigation leads the detectives deep into the Fitzsimmons brothers' past. They find heartbreaking loss, sordid characters, and metaphysical conspiracies. Even on the rough streets of 1970s Boston, Jones and Dillon have never had a case like this"--Dust jacket.

    *Starred Review* Boston in the mid-1970s. A university football player is murdered. A couple of homicide cops work the case, following the few meager leads, but someone else is also trying to find the boy's killer: the victim's younger brother, Daniel, who can see things before they happen and who might be able to solve what the police can't. Harvey, an investigative journalist who has written several well-received crime novels (including, most recently, the Boston-set Brighton?, 2016), gives us a gritty mystery with an element of fantasy that, rather than detracting from the story's realism, actually supports it: we totally believe in Daniel's ability, which means that when Harvey starts layering on the twists and turns, we marvel at, rather than disbelieve, the revelations that follow. Harvey takes some risks here—a serpentine, fantasy-tinged plot is always in danger of running off its tracks—but he never loses control of his narrative, and readers just might find themselves a bit out of breath at the end of the ride. An ambitious, brilliantly successful novel and a textbook example of how to make crime fiction and fantasy work as a team. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
