Everybody wants to live forever, but some people shouldn’t live at all … After a near-fatal car crash, Royce 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“For nearly a century, ever since The Hands of Orlac, readers have been fascinated by the notion of a body at war with itself. Now, in The Dreaming Tree, Matthew Mather ramps up this classic concept to an even higher level of thrills and suspense. In a believable near-future setting, rich guy Roy Lowell-Vandeweghe undergoes a full-body transplant—courtesy of the mysterious Eden Corporation—awaking to find his head grafted onto a donor form. What follows is a nightmare odyssey of identity confusion, uncovering the legacy of the past, and coming to terms with one’s own sins and those of others. Add in a murder mystery under the investigation of classy, sassy female cop Delta Devlin, and you have a twin-barreled blast of creepy, high-tech, gothic grue.” Paul Di Filippo, author of Ribofunk, Cosmocopia, and others
“Another mind-bending story by the master of technothrillers! If Cyberstorm was brilliant, then The Dreaming Tree is genius!” Nicholas Sansbury Smith, New York Times bestselling author of the Hell Divers series
