Description

James Bolivar "Slippery Jim" diGriz, Special Corps agent, master con man, and interstellar criminal (retired), is living high on the hog on the planet Moolaplenty when a long-lost cousin and a shipful of swine arrive to drain his bank account and send him, and his lovely wife, Angelina, wandering the stars on the wildest journey since Gulliver's Travels.

In this darkly satiric work, Harry Harrison brings his most famous character out of retirement for a grand tour of the galaxy. The Stainless Steel Rat rides again: a cocktail in his hand, a smile on his lips, and larceny in his heart, in search of adventure, gravitons, and a way to get rid of the pigs.

  • (2/5)
    (Note: I don't actually recall if I read any earlier books in this series.)Meh. One contrived crisis after another with gimmicky resolutions pulled out of a hat at the opportune time. No depth. Straight action-adventure space opera.
  • (4/5)
    Jim DeGriz is pulled from his relaxations by the arrival of his kin leading to a trans-galaxy quest to find a new place for them and get them out of his hair. A good quick read.
