    Things aren't going well for Slippery Jim diGriz. First there was the robbery of the Mint on Pask├Ânjak that went terribly wrong, and then that little matter of a death penalty. And last but not least, there's the deal Slippery Jim cuts with the authorities, which, on reflection, doesn't look much better than slow death. In exchange for his life, Slippery Jim must retrieve a missing alien artifact from the planet Liokukae - a dumping ground for the Galactic League's misfits, murderers, maniacs, and the incurably obnoxious.

    I read these first well over 40 years ago. When I saw them on Audible, I couldn't wait to try them again. Not ususlly something Id buy at my age but am very glad I did. Pure escapism and rattling good yarns!

    Op-Center chief Paul Hood was going to retire. But that's about as likely as a gun shooting flowers. A bunch of rogue U.N. peacekeepers, or "Keepers," has decided to cross over to the wrong side of the law. Armed with stolen U.N. weapons and ammo, they devise a shocking plan to gain the world's attention. Demanding one hundred million dollars in ransom, the assassins take over the U.N. - where ambassadors from ten nations have gathered for a gala function at which Hood's daughter is going to perform. Hood is back in the saddle in a flash, with the full force of Op-Center at his command....

    I have now listened to the first 6 Op-Center Books. All have been absolutely first rate in every respect. All of the characters are fascinating, but my favourite is the General. I can't wait for the rest of the series and hope it goes on for a long, long time!

    Slippery Jim is here a brash 17-year-old who has left his parents' porcuswine farm, planning to embark on a life of crime. The book opens with Jim bungling a bank job so that he can be arrested and sent to prison, where he plans to learn the art of being a master criminal. Deciding that the Bishop should be his mentor, Jim sets about proving himself worthy of the master's attention.

    DiGriz and Angelina are happily married and expecting the birth of their sons. The planet Cliaand is waging interstellar war, and against the odds, its Grey Men are invading and taking over planet after planet. The Rat is sent to Cliaand to start a one-man guerrilla campaign to put a stop to the plans of the planet's leader, Kraj. He is aided by the Amazons, a force of liberated freedom fighters, and eventually by his wife who arrives to help him win the war and keep him out of the arms of the Amazons.

    I rewad all of the Harry Harrison books as a young man and was fascinated to see they were still available. I have now bought most of them and have enjoyed them as much as I did more than 40 years ago
