Someone had stolen his body--and thereby hangs the tale..Ismael Forth woke up to find he was dead--killed on a remote planet, the report was. His personality recording predating his death was now implanted in a new body. But Forth knew he would never have traveled in space..that the report was a lie--and he learned that his body had been stolen for a highly profitable, highly illegal mind implant. Companioned by Candy Darling, a Federation agent whose eleven-year-old body housed an intelligence seven times that age, he set out to track down his old body--for the new form that now housed Ismael Forth once belonged to an attractive woman--with an elegant, if rather inconvenient, tail.
