Overview

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.

The Dreaming Tree is a medical science thriller centered on transplants. In this case, Roy wakes to find he was in a car accident and his head has been transplanted onto a donor body. For two years, his nervous system forms new connections to the donor body, but it still feels alien to him. Who was his donor? How did he die? Why does he keep dreaming of a little red-headed girl and her mother? Roy is from one of the wealthy Hamptons families, and the extremes they go to for extending their youth is definitely creepy. One of my favorite parts was the Delta Devlin character, a police detective who is a tetrachrome and sees colors in a whole new way. As always, Maher has written a story that will leave you thinking about it long after you have finished reading it.

Medical science fiction dominates the first part of the book so a solid background can be established for the murder mystery that follows. Interesting concept that allows for an entertaining novel.
