The Dreaming Tree by Matthew Mather
2019 | Mystery & Thriller
Everybody wants to live forever, but some people shouldn’t live at all …After a near-fatal car crash, Royce Lowell-Vandeweghe wakes up to find he’s one of the first patients to undergo a radical new procedure: a full-body transplant. Convalescing years later and suffering from waking nightmares, he answers the door at his Long Island home and meets Delta Devlin, a New York detective. She sees things nobody else can—visions created by a mutation to her eyes—and meeting Royce sets off an unraveling chain of events …Royce becomes Devlin’s prime suspect in a string of grisly murders. Desperate for answers, he tracks down the grieving widow of the man whose body he now inhabits. Out of time, and perhaps his mind, they spiral into a world of black-market body parts and billionaires where nothing can stand in the way of living forever—not even death itself.
