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 even 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.
Pulse is laced with real danger and otherworldly twists–a stunningly original and mind-bending novel that stretches the boundaries of the crime thriller.
