Stress, Charles: Glasshouse

Set well into the future when interstellar travel is a matter of teleporting, this is a thriller of sorts with
the lead actor initially trying to find out who is trying to kill him.   He agrees to join an experimental
social programme only to wake up as a woman married to someone who eventually turns out to be the woman he loves (don't ask).   The novel is heavier going than other novels I have read by this
author but, fortunately, not all the time.   Several chapters move along concisely and the book did
keep me interested though I found the later chapters something of an add-on, almost as if they had
been transposed from a different tale - or that there were some missing chapters somewhere.
