Slippery Jim is caught red-handed when he tries to rob the mint in Pask?njak. He is presented with a simple choice: a horrible death, or a job for the Galactic League. The League want Jim to go to the planet Liokukae and bring back a missing artefact - the only known evidence of an alien life-form ever found. To ensure that Jim doesn't try to escape, he is given a slow-acting poison - he's got 30 days to return with the artefact, and receive the antidote, or he'll die. Liokuke is a colony where misfits and maniacs are sent, so to ensure a warm welcome and safe passage around the planet, Jim arrives with three League agents, disguised as a rock band sent to entertain the inhabitants. But as time passes - and Jim's life expectancy is reduced - the mission becomes less about recovering the artefact, and more about liberating the planet.Things arent going well for Slippery Jim diGriz. First there was the robbery of the Mint on Paskouml;njak that went terribly wrong, and then that little matter of a death penalty, and an extremely unpleasant execution after that. And last but not least, theres the deal Slippery Jim cuts with the authorities, which, on reflection, doesnt look much better than slow death.In exchange for his life, Slippery Jim must retrieve a missing alien artifact from the planet Liokukae - a dumping ground for the Galactic Leagues misfits, murderers, maniacs, and the incurably obnoxious. Under cover as the leader of the rock band The Stainless Steel Rats, Slippery Jim violates every law of the land - including the musical ones. He has thirty days to bring back the artifact...or the slow-acting poison the League has fed him will kick in, and Slippery Jim diGriz will be history.
