Not really science fiction,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Stainless Steel Rat Omnibus (Paperback)
This is more like Mission Impossible, Slippery Jim can always pull some gadget out of his pocket, any opponent can be knocked out by a few blows to the head. There is a repeated 'daring heist, get captured, released by wife/friend/rebel, next daring heist' sequence which is repeated too many times for my liking. It's like some sixties TV series. If he's such a great bank robber, how come he nearly gets caught every time? Not a bad book but nothing special.
