I read this book about 23-Mar-2003. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1987. This note was last modified Tuesday, 25-Mar-2003 14:27:11 PST.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
It feels older than the copyright given; I wonder if the background, or maybe even the story itself, actually dates back to magazine serials a long time before 1987?
Very light, kinda amusing. It's really a private eye novel, set in an SF universe and featuring a private eye with the ability to physically imitate about anybody, due to the modifications installed when he was in the chameleon corps.
