As Proteus Unbound begins, The hero of the first novel, Bey Wolf is down and out, but as the greatest expert in form change available - all the others are inexplicably mad or dead, he is not allowed to disintegrate in peace. He is dragged back into the real world to find out why form changes are going wrong in the outer systems. He also has his own mystery - why he keeps having visions of a capering clown. of course it is immediately obvious from the start that whatever is wiping out the rest of the experts is also having it's affect on him and that it is pretty likely that the reason is to prevent investigation of the form-change problems but nobody seems to realise this for a long time. Like the first novel, this rattles along well, but ultimately I found it a little predictable. Nevertheless it is good fun and an entertaining light read.

Naturally there is a bad guy (who may or may not be bad) and there is a tracker, Beh Wolf (ain't that knee slapper) who must find and make that determination as to which category he falls. There is a lot of business, several conversations, but one can never forget that this is just a book - and an unconvincing one at that. Wolf runs into the same problems and even uses the same dialogue as 19th century detectives (only jazzed up with techojargon). Unfortunately it appears that this story duo will become a trio.
