The Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hell (Stainless Steel Rat, #9)

By Harry Harrison

Rating: 3 stars

Another adventure for Slippery Jim DiGriz, the Stainless Steel Rat. This time there’s a conman on the loose, promising rich people a glimse (and more) of heaven. Jim’s wife is missing and he has to track down the physicist at the heart of it before it’s too late.

A major problem that I had with this book is the the tame scientist on hand, ready to invent exactly what’s needed to move on to the next bit of plot. What keeps it going, however, is Harrison’s sense of pace. He keeps the book going fairly quickly, and you get drawn in. Enjoyable fun, but over-reliant on the gadgets and not the Rat’s own abilities.
