From Kirkus Reviews
Near-future science fiction thriller from the authors of Mirage (1996). ``Mimes'' are artificial humans whose sex chromosomes have been replaced by the Goleman chromosome: Using a template disk, they can ``flux'' into any body shape. Slaves of the predatory corporate-city ``gloms,'' mimes live only to gain Selfhood, freedom, and a permanent body form. Mime Tristan's last mission for his handler, Cyrill of Kaze Glom, is to steal a McGuffin from the heavily defended Citadel of deadly rival Flagge Glom. To gain entry to the Citadel, Tristan must take the body shape of Flagge ``datameister'' Lani Rouge using Kaze's newly invented writable template. Before he steals her appearance, however, Lani recognizes Tristan's current template: Its Trev, Lani's now-dead ex-lover, a bioengineer deeply involved in a secret...

From Publishers Weekly
Given the formidable talents of the writers involved, this first adventure of a club of professional thrillseekers is a surprisingly unfulfilling affair. The six male members of the Daredevils Club meet every New Year's Eve to swap stories about the past year's missions impossible. In 1999, oil magnate Frik Van Alman sows the seeds for the following year's bragfest when he asks his fellow Daredevils to help him recover pieces of an unearthly artifact he discovered while drilling in an undersea cavern. Never mind that the devious Frik doesn't tell them the artifact can harness energy magically, or that its parts were deliberately disassembled and dispersed to different people by one of his employees (whose death Frik hastened) to keep it out of his unscrupulous hands. The Daredevils are off and running, and the...
