Please help me find this book!

I’m looking for a book. Unfortunately I don’t know the title or the name of the author. All I have to go on is a half remembered review in the Boston Herald that I read some time in the last 5 - 10 years.

The book concerns an unusual virus or biological weapon that is released in the Cambridge Side Galleria (A well-know local shopping mall located in, you guessed it, Cambridge.) and also may involve a young boy with some sort of psychic powers.

So, now that I’ve told you what I know of the book, you may be asking yourself why I would waste my time tracking down such a ridiculous sounding novel.

Well, I say to you that it is precisely because it sounds so ridiculous that I am searching for it. The book sounds unintentionally hilarious and might be a fairly entertaining, if brainless, read.

Besides, now that I’ve gotten the idea of this book in my head, I won’t be able to rest until I’ve read it! This is driving me nuts people, please help me!
