Stainless Steel Rat

Tor Books

Slippery Jim diGriz, alias the Stainless Steel Rat, the galaxy's greatest thief and con artist, returns in his most devilish caper yet.

DiGriz is strenuously fighting boredom on a ritzy pleasure planet when his beloved wife disappears while vising the Temple of Eternal Truth, an enigmatic institution that promises its patrons a sneak peek at Heaven--for a price.

Determined to get his wife back, diGriz takes on the Temple. He thinks he's ready for anything, but he never expects to find himself banished to Hell, complete with pointy-tailed devils. Has Divine judgement caught up with the Rat at last?

Of course not.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
