The books in Jack Jack L. Chalker's "Cerberus: A Wolf in the Fold" holds no surprises (assuming you've read the first book, "Lilith: A Snake in the Grass"). For all intents and purposes, the writing is the same. The interesting thing here is the comparison of how the protagonist's character changes against his baseline in a technological world (Cerberus) vs in a pastoral world (Lilith). Someday, I'll set aside some time to delve into more of the imagination of Chalker.

Jack L. Chalker's "Cerberus: A Wolf in the Fold" holds no surprises (assuming you've read the first book, "Lilith: A Snake in the Grass"). For all intents and purposes, the writing is the same. The interesting thing here is the comparison of how the protagonist's character changes against his baseline in a technological world (Cerberus) vs in a pastoral world (Lilith). Just like the first book, it's a nice, easy, fast-paced read. I rate the book at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5.

The books in Jack L. Chalker's "Four Lords of the Diamond" series are:

1. Lilith: A Snake in the Grass (The Four Lords of the Diamond Book 1)
2. Cerberus: A Wolf in the Fold (The Four Lord of the Diamond Book 2)
3. Charon: A Dragon at the Gate (The Four Lord of the Diamond Book 3)
4. Medusa: A Tiger by the Tail (The Four Lord of the Diamond Book 4)

The hardened assassin continues his task of dealing with the Four Lords of the Diamond while using another's body so as not to be affected by the Warden organism. Are the surrogates, who are affected by the Warden organism, beginning to have an impact on him, even tho they are clones of his mind?

Here is well written science fiction that develops plausible story line and consistent behavior within the constraints of the world in which the story takes place. Body switching could be a little creepy, and occasionally difficult to follow, but in the end, it all makes sense, in its own way.

One question lingers: Just what is the role of the friendly psychiatrist?

There are four (4) books in the "Lords of the Diamond" series, all of which are not only entertaining, but also have a buried commentary on possible future civilization, penal systems, and the human condition in general. This is the second of the series. As such, while it can be read as a stand-alone, it is much more enjoyable when all four books are read as a series and in order.

Though the series is now 20 years old, and not written in the style of modern science fiction, it is still enjoyable for all age brackets. For those of us who are 'older' fans, the style and content reflect the science fiction we grew up reading. As such, fans of 'cyber punk' and modern themes may not enjoy it, but it is still worthy of reading and as a reflection of how the genre has changed since the original days of "Astounding" and such magazines.

1 star? Yes, because of the AMAZONE greediness! This is a series of 4 books with each book at only around 200 pages. Not only short, but about 30% of the first book is repeated over and over again in each successive making this seris WAY overpriced netting about 150 pages each! I am am avid fan of Jack Chalker's writing and although this series is a pretty good read, not his best and overall quite short.
AMAZON charges $5.99 for the first book, then books 2 & 3 go up to $7.99 each and finally the final one at $9.99 ! Cleary AMAZON is sucking it for all they can at the expense of the customer, knowing that once a series has been started an avid reader will want to finish, AMAZON is abusing their position by ripping off the buyer. Beware!

Please read Jack L. Chalker! You won't be disappointed! Make sure you read this whole series. These stories are full of great characters and they draw you in easily. Chalker describes places and settings beautifully and it places you right in the scene! If you enjoy visiting strange worlds and meeting strange characters when you read, this is the place to go!

I read this book based on positive online reviews. The main character was an unconvincing as apparently the best engineered assassin the current culture could produce. The central mystery of the story was transparent and the characterisation was rather shallow. I also read the 2nd book in the hope things might improve if I let things develop further but alas, even the second was weal and unconvincing.

Cerberus is good as a stand alone book; but much better read with the remaining 3 "Four Lord of the Diamonds" books. Still reading Medusa; but as a whole it is a great story.
A replacement book for one destroyed by grandbaby. Good series, always enjoyed Jack Chalker.
