After saving the world, diGriz is called on to save the universe. Liberating his two, now teenage, twin' sons from a military boarding school and penitentiary, diGriz sets out to free his wife, who has been arrested by the tax men. But the family is soon fighting an enemy of a different sort, when the humans-only galaxy of the League is invaded by all manner of hideous aliens. The Rat, disguised in the most hideous combination of alien physical features, is sent into the centre of the aliens' stronghold, where he finds himself the object of desire among the aliens. His task is to stop the aliens, who plan to wipe out every human in the universe.
[From the Publisher] Slippery Jim diGriz, the future's master criminal turned super-spy, is recruiting for an all-out interstellar war! Loathsome, mind sucking creatures from an unknown star are closing in on Earth. Once again it's up to the Stainless Steel Rat to save humanity. In a daring caper packed with action and laughs, the Rat goes undercover to stop the invasion-disguised as a hideous, bug-eyed extraterrestrial!
"After this hectic caper the Rat can hold his head high amongst the most elevated super-hero company--Bulldog Drummond, James Bond and Flash Gordon included."--Times Literary Supplement.
"A fast-moving, light-fingered entertainment from one of the masters of tongue-in-cheek parody."--New York Newsday
