|Plot Summary of Sight of Proteus|
It is the 22nd century, and humans can use a mixture of bio-feedback and chemotherapy to change their appearance and physical abilities. These changes are regulated by the Office of Form Control. Wolf Bey is the head of Form Control, and he has detected a scientist who is attempting radical and illegal form changes. This person is possibly using DNA from the inhabitants of a planet which exploded 16 million years before to enhance human performance. Wolf pursues the scientist through the solar system to find the secrets of the methods that he is using to bring about his very unusual form changes.
