I read it years ago and just can't remember what it was called or who wrote it.

It's about blob aliens and nano tech. Humans are a spacefaring species and have met and live along side, on many planets, a blob species of alien. Only the females of the blob species are sentient though and they keep their wild unintelligent males on a preserve for mating purposes.

But there is one male that is intelligent but has to pretend he's female and teams up with a human cop (I think he was a cop) to stop nano tech terror attacks on the settled worlds.

    I left the Larry Niven tag, but are you certain about that? It doesn't seem familiar to me. – DavidW Apr 20 at 3:32

    I agree with @DavidW, and I think it would make more sense to have that information in the body of the question - maybe even if they're sure. More visible that way. – Megha Apr 20 at 4:00

    I've read everything Niven wrote, and pretty sure it's not him. – MikeC Apr 20 at 8:50
  • Y'all are right, definitely not Larry Niven. I left that tag cause I wasn't sure what the tags were about so just put my favorite author. – Calvin Apr 20 at 12:16
  • I hope this gets identified cos I wanna read it – DannyMcG Apr 20 at 17:43
