The Stainless Steel Rat Goes to Hell
The Stainless Steel Rat Book 10
By Harry Harrison
Sinister religions, missing physicists, super strings and retarded entropy; it's all in a day's work for Slippery Jim DiGriz, the Stainless Steel Rat, the Universe's greatest ever thief and con artist. But this time the stakes are rather higher than even Slippery Jim is used to. His wife Angelina has disappeared and he has nothing to go on except a pool of blood and a severed hand (formerly belonging to a physicist of stellar repute) - and the fact that she has expressed an interest in The Temple of Eternal Truth, a cult offering a sneak peek at heaven - for a price.
But there's a job to do and the Stainless Steel Rat is the man to do it. After all, the devil makes work for idle hands...
