Publisher's Summary

Things aren't going well for Slippery Jim diGriz. First there was the robbery of the Mint on Paskönjak that went terribly wrong, and then that little matter of a death penalty, and an extremely unpleasant execution after that. 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. Under cover as the leader of the rock band The Stainless Steel Rats, Slippery Jim violates every law of the land - including the musical ones. He has 30 days to bring back the artifact... or the slow-acting poison the League has fed him will kick in, and Slippery Jim diGriz will be history.

Man of steal: Listen to more in the Stainless Steel Rat series.

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    "Time to stop."

    I was torn. I love the rat and want more stories, but the author seems to have hit the wall at this point. This one was ok at best and if you aren't a big fan you might not want to spend a cresit on this one.

    "The Stainless Steel Rat Revisited"

    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!

    "Phil can sing. Who knew?"

    always enjoy any Stainless Steel Rat stories. also the narration by Phil Gigante is alway easy to listen to, entertaining and he makes it clear when the speech switches.
    on top.of all that, Phil can sing. Who knew?

    "Further stainless steel rat story"

    These stories have been around for a long time now but I still find them a great listen. In my mind Phil is Jim!
