After a ten-year absence, the return of one of the most enduring series characters in modern SF
James Bolivar "Slippery Jim" DiGriz, Special Corps agent, master con man, interstellar criminal (retired), is living high on the hog on the planet of Moolaplenty when a long-lost cousin and a shipful of swine arrive to drain his bank account and send him and his lovely wife, Angelina, wandering the stars on the wildest journey since Gulliver's Travels.
In this darkly satiric work, Harry Harrison bring his most famous character out of retirement for a grand tour of the galaxy. The Stainless Steel Rat rides again: a cocktail in his hand, a smile on his lips, and larceny in his heart, in search of adventure, gravitons, and a way to get rid of the pigs.

I thought it apropos that the first book I read on my phone be in the series of books that remember fondly from my youth.
It's a quick read of swashbuckling spacecapades from Jim diGriz and his lovely wife Angelina. Bringing back the porcuswine of his youth was good for his hubris after many long years of living the high life. A must read for any Stainless Steel Rat fan.
Pigs in Space.
Not the book I was expecting. Having read these books over the years, I found this one to be fair at best.
