"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.

Boring and way too violent for my tastes. Could have been 2 separate books with the supernatural aspects and the police procedural. Harvey is otherwise a good writer, but this did not work.

Interesting story that takes place in the 70s. Two brothers (Harry and Daniel) are 19 and 16 have pretty much raised themselves after there mother died in a car accident when they were 11 and 8. The older brother, Harry, is a star football player and excellent student at Harvard who everyone is rooting for until he winds up murdered in the city of Boston. Interesting twists with "entanglement" a push that Daniel possesses to will people to do things and the relationship between the cops (Barkley and Tommy) who are investigating Harry's murder.
