Product Description

Product Description

Someone was tampering with time, altering the past to eliminate the present, fading people out of existence into a timeless limbo.

One of the victims was Angelina, the lovely, lethal wife of James Bolivar di Griz – better known as the Stainless Steel Rat. That put Slippery Jim on the trail of the villains, a trail that went back to 1984 and an ancient nation called the United States of America. The Stainless Steel Rat was determined to rescue his wife. And before he was through he’d thrown dozens of centuries through time in both directions. But then he didn’t have much choice: to save Angelina he had to save the world. Again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and cleverly funny sci-fi 16 Mar 2011
I read the 2000ad comic book adaptation of this aged about 12 and sought out the book later on in my teens.

At the time I remember being narked off that they set the Rat's world so far in the future (30,000 years or so) but I'll put that down to my fear of mortality as opposed to any criticism of Mr Harrison.

The later SS Rat books were contrived and tired but this is where Harry Harrison hit his stride. Slippery Jim DiGriz has to travel back in time to prevent an evil bad guy from changing his future and erasing history. Armed only with his sharp wits and a few gadgets he has to defeat the most horrid of foes and get back to his own time.

I loved this book and it has some wonderful sequences (e.g. Professor Coypu's reaction to being brought back to life, Angelina's bossy behavior upon materializing out of mid air, the Time Helix paradox at the end).

Addictive and well written and years ahead of its time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dr.Who meets the ultimate cat burgler. 8 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
James Bolivar Di Griz is one of the best criminal minds in the universe, only he isn't a criminal anymore and someone using time travel is erasing everyone from his agency and life, including his equally corrupt wife Angela. In a last ditch attempt to stop this from happening Jim leaps back in time following the trail of the villain responsible.

The third book in the series still sees Jim using his ingenious mind to try and out wit his enemies but with limited gadgets and traveling through different periods in time it makes for a nice change of pace compared with the previous books in the series. Another fun, easy reading, B-movie sci-fi romp. If you enjoyed the first two books, this will be no different.

Took me right back, re-reading this classic comedy Sci-fi. If you liked Hitch Hikers Guide and Discworld, then this should also be on your reading list.
