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 fourth, and final book, 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.

I thought this would be a straightforward action sci-fi story and it delivered there. Subtly woven throughout the action were building blocks for the larger story. At the end of the 4th book that larger story took center stage and it was though-provoking and interesting. I wish more science-fiction could be like this.

Jack L. Chalker's "Medusa: A Tiger by the Tail" is the fourth (and final) book in his "Four Lords of the Diamond" series. With the exception of a slight twist in the story, the main body of the book follows the same pattern as the previous three books. So, if you liked those books (which I assume you would since you're reading this), you should like this book. I'd like to point out, though, that the meat of the series is done in the Epilogue. This is where the whole thing gets tied up. So, definitely read it. I rate both this book and the series as a whole 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)

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!
