I am looking for the name of a science-fiction novel published no later than August 1992. The main character is a very long-lived (centuries) werewolf who is a biochemist. He conceals this by assuming a new identity every few decades. The aliens who conquered Earth are the only ones who can survive FTL without going into suspended animation.
The protagonist is found out by the aliens when he is being interrogated in a room. The aliens give him a list of the names he has used in previous lives and catch him out by slowly turning down the light to a level where normal humans couldn't read. The protagonist doesn't realize the lights are too low until after he denies knowing anything about the names on the list. The novel ends with him sneaking aboard an alien spacecraft and escaping to another world.
