James Bolivar 'Slippery Jim' diGriz, Special Corps agent, master conman and interstellar criminal (retired), is living high on the hog with his lovely, vivacious wife Angelina on the luxury planet Moolaplenty when long-lost Cousin Elmo arrives. And Cousin Elmo's not alone: he's got a ship full of porcuswine and their keepers, and they're all looking for a new home. And before he's even finished his first cocktail, his bank account's been drained and he and Angelina are off wandering the stars on a sabotaged ship. In this darkly satiric work Harry Harrison brings his most famous character out of retirement for a grand tour of the galaxy, cocktail in hand, his luscious wife by his side, a smile on his lips and larceny in his heart. He's in search of adventure, gravitons, and a way to get the porcuswine out of his life ...for ever!
