OrangeReviewStarHarvey (Brighton) returns with his eighth novel, a crime thriller with a dash of quantum physics and spirituality. The main character, 16-year-old Daniel Fitzsimmons, has had a rough life to say the least. His parents are dead and it's just been Daniel and his older brother Harry since they were little. Then Harry, a stand-out football player at Harvard, is murdered, leaving Daniel alone and in the middle of his murder investigation. Daniel battles his intense feelings of grief as well as some strange powers he is not sure how to control—or if they are even real. Two veteran detectives, "Bark" Jones and Tommy Dillon, are assigned to the case. They are stunned when they interview Daniel and find out he claims to have known about his brother's murder before it even occurred.
VERDICT This well-researched novel set in 1970s Boston is a real page-turner. With twists that sometimes seem to come from another world, it's sure to keep readers interested. [See Prepub Alert, 4/23/18.]
