Richard Morgan book Altered Carbon

Description

Personalities are resleeved into other bodies.

paperback has been out since march 2003

In this book, a male soldier investigator is placed in another man's body to investigate a murder of a wealthy old woman.

This is an excellent sci-fi murder mystery. The book is set in a future where people travel by downloading their minds into different 'Sleeves'. There are several references to people occupying sleeves of different genders and the main character is rather graphically tortured in a weaker female body, although this portion is actually done in a virtual environment. Overall, the TG is minor, but the book is excellent and of Morgan decides to write more in this setting in future (which seems likely, given the richness of the universe he describes), then there are definitely great possibilities.
