Publisher's Summary

A serial killer is loose on the streets of New York,
chased by a detective whose mutated eyes
see things only she can.... 

Shutter Island meets Jacob’s Ladder in the new near-future crime thriller from million-copy best seller Matthew Mather, with books translated in over 20 languages worldwide. 

“Relentless pacing, well-developed main characters, and plethora of bombshell plot twists.” (Publishers Weekly)

After a near-fatal car crash, Royce wakes up to find he’s one of the first patients to undergo a radical new procedure: a full-body transplant. Convalescing 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. 

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, he tumbles through a hallucinogenic underworld of black-market body parts and billionaires where nothing can stand in the way of living forever - not even death itself.

A very real lifelike story!

This has to be some of the finest work! So far I have read almost all of his books, and am lost in each one to the end..
I'm glad I don't live inside his mind!

what happened to Susan Collins

This book was hardly worth my time, but I finished it to meet the conditions of the current challenge. it was slow moving and repetitive. the story was thin and there certainly was not enough mystery to fill eighteen hours.
the characters were poorly developed and dull. I had difficulty in garnering any sympathy for the main character. the motives were convoluted and confusing.
I would not recommend this book.
the narrator were okay but two were not necessary.

Fantastic!!

Wow, this is a thrilling, mind boggling story that you think you know what's going on, but you don't, cuz I sure didn't. I'd love to see this as a movie, or even short, 4 part miniseries! May have to see what else this author has to offer.

Just Okay

I love medical mysteries, but this one was just okay. Some interesting parts, but there was some time inconsistencies and there were some places that were difficult to follow.

unique medical scifi

I enjoyed the shared reading as it provided easy transition from chapter to chapter. i also appreciate an author who finds a fresh approach to a well worn genre. Early on we learn there has been a highly advanced transplant surgery and the protagonist may not be everything he appears to be.

Taylorson 4, Eller 2

...purchased this at a deep discounted sale price and still almost didn't listen to this upon hearing Eller's first chapter...upping the speed during her parts helped, but her characterizations of all but Devlin where awful - especially Devlin senior. Taylorson was wonderful as usual.
The story is timely and plausible. The writing has many moments of beautiful description.

OK book

This book got confusing at times. The timeframes weren't consistent which had me rewinding to see if I missed something. The ending was a little out of left field. Plus, I didn't like the female narrator.

Great!

There's nothing that makes a mystery better than a SciFi mystery. As usual Matthew Mather has written a great book with wonderful characters. The twists and turns always keeps you guessing which mskes it hard to put down. Well done!
